We deserve better.

Not slowing down

October 29, 2021

As we get older many of us slow down.

I can report that I did something the other day faster than I have ever done it.

I pumped $50 dollars of gasoline in my car.

We deserve better

Good customer service attracts customers

There was a time where upon landing at the airport one could walk down to the baggage section and find their baggage already waiting for them.

The service was excellent.

Many out of town travelers told me how much they enjoyed their experience at our airport.

With the highest homestead property tax rate and the second highest industrial property tax rates of the 50 largest cities in the United States we don’t look too good to companies that might want to relocate here.

Little things count. First impressions count.

Couldn’t we at least make flying into El Paso a more enjoyable experience?

We deserve better


Not the reason

The El Paso Times recently shut down its El Paso based printing presses and moved their printing function to Juarez. included this from the Times in their article about the change:

“Where the newspaper is printed does not impact our ability to provide outstanding journalism and service to our readers, advertisers and communities,” a company statement read.

We now know that where the newspaper was printed was not the impediment to the Times providing outstanding journalism and service.

It must be other things.

We deserve better
