The New Year

Well except for the bowl games the holidays are over.  I'm rejuvenated and excited about the prospect of getting back to work as usual.  It's January 1 and the Cowboys are all snuggled in at their homes watching the playoffs like the rest of us.  Kinda perennial!  Well there is plenty of issues to tackle.  We have a new Superintendant of AISD, so education and it's improvements in our city is at the top of the list.  Our neighborhoods have improved, and crime is on the decline.  Chief Strickland and I will work together to ensure that this trend continues.  Also, David Woodruff will be sworn in today.  I hope to team up with him in making our neighborhoods safer.  We are making headway with the Dangerous and Substandard Structure/Nusiance Abatement Programs.  Forest Hills apartments are being taken to task.  They will either be brought up to standard, or removed.  Four of their 10 structures are currently on the clock.  Also, a Multi-Familyinspection ordinance is in committee.  It's purpose is to make living standards better in the apartments that we currently inhabit.  And lastly, there are a lot of new projects in the works for North Arlington.  These are under executive priviledge at the moment, but I hope to share them with you in the next 3-4 months.

2013 could be a very good year for North Arlington, and I am fortunate to be able to represent you in these developments.  I continue to strive for transparency in my responsibilities to you.  Feel free to call, (817) 691-8582, email, charlie.parker@arlingtontx.gov, or comment on this blog concerning issues of interest to you.
