Some of you have asked how much debt we have at the other taxing entities in El Paso.
This graphic came from the city’s 2016 certified annual financial report:
Your home cannot be in both the El Paso and Ysleta districts so you will need to subtract out whichever one is not applicable to you.
The debt total for the other taxing entities is almost two billion dollars. Subtract $400,000,000 to eliminate a school district and you find that the total that applies to you is about 1.6 billion dollars.
That does not include the $668,000,000 that EPISD will issue soon.
Add the 1.6 billion to the $2,455,000,000 that the city owes and the total comes to around four billion dollars.
Your share is about $18,125.
You might keep that in mind when deciding about voting tomorrow.
We deserve better
