Dallas Observer reporter Jim Schutze, a self-proclaimed “expert on Dallas City Council recusing styles,” takes issue with councilwoman Jennifer Staubach Gates recusing herself from voting on the rezoning of the luxury apartments proposed at Northwest Highway. Schutze says,”…we do sort of have a problem.
