DavidK over at refusethejuice recently wrote Shapleigh Camper’s second shot at city fails miserably.
Please take the time to read it carefully. The article was about the recent flap over a comment that our chief of police made.
To us the important part was at the end of the article where he gave some much needed advice to some of our local politicians:
You represent people, not lead them. You’re not a leader, you’re a representative. When you stop representing, you get fired via the ballot box. Stop telling people what to do and start doing what you are told. It’s called “public service” for a reason. It’s really that simple.
He also observed:
El Pasoans are Democrats, not liberals. Those are two totally different things. El Paso’s Democrats aren’t Democrats because of the social issues. I’ll just leave it that.
David does not live in El Paso anymore. If he did we would be tempted to try to get him to run for public office.
