There are big changes ahead at Dallas City Hall. Not just new Council members, but also a new city manager.

Long time City Manager Mary Suhm announced this past week that she's leaving Dallas' most powerful position. What's the backstory on Suhm's surprise resignation?

Host Jason Whitely and Dallas Morning News political writer Gromer Jeffers discuss what's happening with veteran Dallas City Council member Dwaine Caraway.

Directors of the Tarrant County Water Board barely kept their seats in last week's election. But this local race in Tarrant County might have been more about Dallas — and East Texas property rights. That's the view of Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy in this week's "My Voice, My Opinion" segment.

The Flashpoint debate focuses on the questions being raised about how the Internal Revenue Service focused on the tax-exempt status of conservative political groups.

And on the Roundtable, find out what the defeat of Dallas City Council member Delia Jasso means to Hispanic influence. Redistricting pitted Jasso against fellow Council member Scott Griggs in Oak Cliff. Griggs won, leaving just two Hispanics on the City Council.
