Mike Rawlings on Principles & Values

 


People have often accused me of 'thinking big'

Mike Rawlings was elected mayor of Dallas, Texas, on June 18, 2011, defeating the city's former police chief David Kunkle in a runoff election. Rawlings, the former CEO of several corporations including Pizza Hut, ran on a pledge to promote economic development in the nation's ninth-largest city. "People have often accused me of 'thinking big', and that's the attitude I plan to bring to Dallas City Hall," the Texas native said in his June 27 inaugural address, promising to improve Dallas public schools, increase transparency and accountability in city government, expand the tax base in southern Dallas, and "make our diversity a trademark."
