The city of El Paso district four representative did not stand for re-election since he had served the maximum number of terms allowed.
No fewer than 7 agenda items are on the Tuesday, May 30, 2017 city council agenda that will allow the outgoing representative to spend discretionary funds.
The total comes to $53,981.
Each representative is allocated a flat amount every budget year. Evidently he did not see the benefit of spending the money as it became available but now wants to use it rather than leaving it for his successor.
His constituents cannot hold him accountable for how the money is spent since he is leaving office.
We deserve better
