Changing his tune

This came in from Max Grossman:

“Our conclusion, based upon our public meetings, was that it is the [city] council’s obligation to take care of the basic infrastructure issues. The voters, however, should be allowed to decide how much more the city should invest in quality-of life.”
–Dee Margo, Chair of the Ad Hoc Bond Committee, El Paso Times, April 2, 2000.

    Remember this is the guy who is now saying we have a representative government that should now make those decisions. Even though that “representative” government wins because beneficiaries of public money contribute huge amounts to the campaigns of the folks they feel will do the best job of lining their pockets. If we truly wanted the people of El Paso to have a voice, there would be a cap on total campaign contributions. That single action would open the door to a stronger field of candidates.

      Therein lies the problem of PACs paying for mailers, radio and tv commercials, and public signage aside from the actual campaign treasury.

      Making that illegal would go against the first ammendment.

    Anonima, you are correct. Margo is not a fan of inconvenient facts.

    Remember that even Donald Trump called this guy “full of crap”. That basically sums himup.
