ACCOMPLISHMENTS

 

Rick Callahan didn’t wait until he was elected as our representative to the

Dallas City Council in 2013 to begin working for our community,

that’s been his passion and mission for more than 30 years!

 

WHEN RICK FIRST RAN FOR CITY COUNCIL IN 2013,

HE PROMISED TO BE OUR VOICE AT CITY HALL,

and the City is finally listening to Southeast Dallas!

  • For the safety of our students and staff, Rick saw to it that the sidewalks at Samuell High School and Comstock Middle School were repaired.

 

  • To engage students and promote leadership in the community, Rick instituted Leadership Southeast, a program in which students from Samuell, Spruce, and Skyline High Schools and from Piedmont Global Academy (formerly Hood Middle School) have participated.

 

  • He also worked to extend the hours of operation, AND add Sunday hours at Pleasant Grove Library.
  • Appointments to city boards and commissions finally reflect the diversity of our district.

 

  • Conversations are still underway with Boys & Girls Clubs of America to bring their program to Southeast Dallas.

 

  • Rick was instrumental in reviving the Pleasant Grove Ministerial Alliance which works to identify and provide needed services to the community.

 

  • He has also worked to address the panhandling crisis that has plagued certain parts of our city, resulting in a 2-pronged approach: 1) a stronger police response to aggressive panhandlers who harass and intimidate shoppers and motorists and 2) greater outreach through the crisis intervention team and shelter outreach programs that provide food, shelter, clothing, job training, counseling, and drug/alcohol screening and treatment. Outreach efforts to the homeless have also been stepped up, and we are working with the Dallas Commission on Homelessness to develop an approach to homeless sites.
