"WE are Losing..."
For those who, like me, are proud Texans and proud Dallasites, the news is pretty disconcerting. While Texas' population grew larger than any other state in the nation (more about the challenges associated with this later) in 10 years. Dallas population grew less than 0.8%.
LESS than ONE percent!
My friend Shawn Williams, publisher of Dallas South News has perspective to which we must pay attention, "While Ft. Worth gained 38.6% and Austin is up 20.4%, Dallas couldn’t even add one percent to our population. My family and I added 4 Dallas residents during that time, seems like we made up the bulk of the difference."
