From The Newsroom: Iraqis Vote In Dallas; Revisiting City Council Salaries

Doualy Xaykaothao
Masdi Altimimi shows his 4-year-old daughter how to vote in Dallas.

In today's Morning Edition local block from the KERA Newsroom: Doualy Xaykaothao finds Iraqi families voting in the country's anticipated presidential election - at a Dallas hotel. It's the first one for Iraq since U.S. troops pulled out in 2011. We also get part two of Bill Zeeble's series on the home rule process being considered by Dallas schools -  we heard from supporters yesterday; today, critics of the plan speak out. And Shelley Kofler talks with State Rep. Rafael Anchia, who thinks Dallas City Council members need a pay raise.
