Introducing our new columnist, Angela Hunt

13.11.26-Angela-Hunt-Headshot-DFulgencio-0024-2In our December issue, longtime back-page columnist Jeff Siegel penned his last Last Word, saying goodbye to readers after 22 years. He’s been part of the Advocate ever since our little news publication launched back in 1991.

Now, a new year brings a new voice keeping City Hall’s feet to the fire: Angela Hunt.

The former city councilwoman represented East Dallas for eight years. These days, she’s a law partner at Farrow-Gillespie & Heath, LLP.

Each month, she’ll write about neighborhood issues, drawing from her experience on the council where she never hesitated to ask the tough questions.

Check out her first column in our January issue about the search for a new city manager and why neighborhood groups should have a voice in the decision. Have an idea for a column? Write to her at

    I LOVE Angela !!!
    NOT just because she represented my neighborhood for 8 years, NOT just because
    I was fortunate enough that she and her husband (now 2 daughters) moved in
    across the street from me 13 years ago, NOT just because she is a dear friend
    and neighbor, but because she is a wonderfully intelligent person who TRULY
    cares about Dallas and it’s neighborhoods in the right way and is one of the
    most logical, hardworking individuals that we are lucky and fortunate enough to
    have in our wonderful city !!
