I want to thank all of the County Employees who participated in the April 29, 2020 Virtual Town Hall Meeting. We received over 200 questions during the meeting. While we were only able to address approximately 30 questions during the session, attached to this Broadcast are the remaining questions and corresponding answers. Some questions were repetitive so in the interest of space, we combined these questions whenever possible.

I want to thank:

  • Stanley Victrum, Chief Information Officer
  • Dr. Philip Huang, Director, Health and Human Services
  • Mr. Robert B. Wilson, Director, Human Resources
  • Jonathan Bazan, Assistant County Administrator

We are available to answer any additional questions as we all attempt to navigate during this unprecedented event.

As I shared at the Town Hall, I want to thank the County’s First Responders, our essential employees and all Dallas County Staff who continue to make a difference every day to your fellow employees and to the Dallas County citizens.

Darryl Martin, County Administrator
