As a former resident of Dallas (and a former PAW office-mate of Mark Bernstein ’83), I also considered Austin my hometown for over two decades. Mark captured the essence of these two metropoles and found the sweet spot that exists between the various political factions in each. He also reflected the pragmatic progressivism of mayors Eric Johnson *03 and Steve Adler ’78 while still finding space to expand on the third-rail issues of each city. Well done!
