Follow up on campaign event costs

May 22, 2019

Back on April 29 ABC-7 reported that our city government had billed the Trump campaign $470,417.05 for services rendered during the president’s recent campaign event in El Paso.

They further reported:

ABC-7 is continuing to obtain more documents on the cost of President Trump’s rally, as well as Beto O’Rourke’s campaign kick-off event in March.

Has anyone heard anything?

Six sigma failed this time

May 21, 2019

The mailer below arrived in my mailbox Tuesday, May 14, 2019.

It has the 2018 garbage holiday schedule.

How could this happen?

Did the post office deliver them six months late?

Did someone at the city just spend a bunch of money for mailing and printing and not bother to look at what was being sent?

Did the printer make the mistake?

How much did this cost the customers?

Will someone be held accountable?

We deserve better


Runoff election day

May 20, 2019

The runoff elections have been scheduled for Saturday, June 15, 2019.

We deserve better.


Someone isn’t thinking

May 19, 2019

Take a look at this picture:

The red letters to the left say “Emergency Walk In Entrance” and point to the staircase under the walkway.

The red rectangular sign on the right points to the emergency room entrance up a flight of stairs.

EPISD voting

May 17, 2019

Evidently you do not have to live in district 7 of EPISD in order to be a board member representing that district.

In the spirit of the situation would it be ok for those of us who live in other districts to go ahead and vote in the upcoming district 7 runoff?

We deserve better
