Thursday, January 11, 2007 | Jim Waring is one of the most interesting people at City Hall.
Waring is Mayor Jerry Sanders’ land-use czar. For whatever reason, Waring has turned into a very visible and important guy. He’s articulate and blunt. He’s a Democrat working for a Republican mayor.
I wish I had a big development project to take to Waring, not only because that would mean I was rich, but also because he seems like a fair and reasonable guy with whom to deal on something like that.
My latest chat with Waring came Tuesday.
The mayor’s State of the City speech is tonight. I took a minute to read Sanders’ speech from last year to see if I might pull out some gems.
In that speech, he invited us, after all, to hold him accountable.
