RIP, Dave Neumann’s Free Parking

Yesterday, I posted that former Dallas city councilman Dave Neumann would probably never, ever get a parking ticket in the city of Dallas. Rudy Bush at the Morning News picked up the ball and ran with it, and, earlier today, Neumann returned his city council parking pass.

Let me be the first to say this: I’m so sorry, Mr. Neumann. Had I known that you were doing anything but being a simple chauffeur for other city councilmembers—a mensch of epic proportions—I would’ve never dimed on you. So we here at D Magazine would like to make it up to you.

How much do you think you would’ve saved, per year, for the rest of your life, with this pass? $500 a year? $1,000 a year? Come up with a fair estimate and send over an invoice. 750 North St. Paul St., Dallas, TX, 75201. I’ll be sure that it’s dealt with promptly.

Again, my sincere apologies.
