The last two days we have seen that El Paso is the eighth poorest major city in the nation and that we have the fifth highest homeowner property tax rate among the nation’s 50 largest cities.

What can we do?
Some will say that we need to attract industry. Better jobs will make the difference.
Well, take a look at this:

Maybe we can attract some industries that don’t worry about money.
We deserve better
