Do you like your child’s teacher?

The other side of the teacher’s union mailer the other day looked like this:

Their five questions are not the ones that I would focus on.

We deserve better

Take a look at this handy web page:

Enter your address and you will see who your elected officials are at the state level.

You can then click on the official’s name and see various ways to contact them.

More of us need to take the time to tell these people what we are thinking.

We deserve better


This may be legal, but is it right?

Will someone please explain to me how an EPISD board member can have his organization participate in a one million dollar project with EPISD?

This has not passed yet but will be back on an agenda soon.

Mr. Velarde is both a board member and the executive director of the company that they propose doing business with.

We deserve better

What a mess

The El Paso Federation of Teachers sent out this mailer the other day:

I can understand their attack on her apparent lying but feel as though the picture was a cheap shot.

Isn’t it unfortunate that a teacher’s union had to spend money to get the word out?

We deserve better


Call your state representative

A regular reader posted a comment the other day that deserves promotion.

S/he wrote:

BRUTUS: On page 9A of today’s El Paso TIMES, there is a short clip titled “Property tax bill clears Senate over backlash by big cities.”

This might be a TOPIC for tomorrow, since it’s an effort to CAP yearly property tax increases to 3.5% for cities and 2.5% for school districts.

Could not find this article on the TIMES website, but did find it at the Texas Tribune and other Texas newspaper websites.

Since some posters on your website have such galactic ‘shit fits’ over local taxes; it might be HELPFUL for those Texas legislators OUTSIDE El Paso pushing this bill, to hear from El Paso taxpayers who like the idea. Also let the Texas Governor and LT. Governor know.

Of course our local elected officials are ‘scared shitless’ over this initiative! Remember: “The squeaky wheel gets the grease.”


The bill has different house and senate versions but has passed in the senate.

It was filed back in November of 2016.  It appears as though it will be considered during this congressional session.

Hope springs eternal.

We deserve better
