False promises

I don’t know if anyone could make this stuff up.

The City of El Paso Downtown Development Corporation (aka city council in sheep’s clothing) met on March 17, 2015.

According to the minutes published last week one thing that happened was:

“Motion made by Board Director Romero, seconded by Board Director Niland, and unanimously carried to HOLD meetings bi-annually, twice a year.”

They have not done that, or if they have they have not published any public agendas or minutes.

In fact they next met April 11 of 2016.  An agenda item for that meeting was the approval of the March 17, 2015 minutes.


Bi-annually evidently means talking out of two sides of their mouths.

We deserve better

    So they decided on “biannually” but must be typo because surely it was “bianal-ly” since those two seem stuck lately on talking through that “other” end. Is Romero active again…I thought he was too ill to continue his public service.

    So, who among the ElPASOSPEAK readers is gooing to run for office and help clean this up?

    Maybe they think that bi-annually means every two years…

    It’s humorous that the motion was made by Romero.

    El Paso Downtown Development Corporation may as well be called the “checkbook” for asset transfer from taxpayers to investors who have funded its directors’ campaigns.
