Leppert says our votes count. Except for the convention center hotel?

Here’s an interesting juxtaposition: Mayor Tom Leppert is circulating an email with the top headline saying "Convention Center Hotel Critical to Dallas’ Future", while the second item is headlined "Vote! It’s Your Voice!" (Click here to see a portion of the email.)

The irony: At least one of Leppert’s spokespuppets on the council already has chortled out loud that even if Dallas residents vote in favor of a potential referendum scuttling the $550 million taxpayer-owned convention center hotel downtown, those votes won’t stop the council from moving forward to build the hotel.

So whose voice is Leppert talking about?
