“Part of having solid character and integrity is admitting mistakes,” Gonzalez wrote in the memo. “Even with 30 years of municipal experience (14 years in Dallas), I made a mistake.

I regret not bringing the issue before the Council earlier in the process and getting your input. I recognize I made a mistake, and I have learned valuable lessons.”
