Dallas City Manager Apologizes About Recent Uber Crackdown

Posted on October 22, 2013

DALLAS, Texas — Interim Dallas City Manager A.C. Gonzalez expressed regret to the mayor and City Council members Monday for failing to consult with them when he coordinated a recent crackdown on the smartphone car service Uber.

“Part of having solid character and integrity is admitting mistakes,” Gonzalez said in a memo. “I made a mistake. Please accept my apology.”

Mayor Mike Rawlings is preparing to brief council members behind closed doors Wednesday on the findings of an investigation into how Dallas City Hall tried to tighten its limousine ordinance. The findings of the investigation, which was headed by former Dallas County District Attorney Bill Hill, are expected to be released after the briefing.

The report and Gonzalez’s acknowledgment of wrongdoing could threaten his standing as a leading candidate to permanently replace Mary Suhm, who retired as city manager earlier this year. City spokesman Frank Librio said Monday that Gonzalez “intends on applying” for the position.
