You’ve been warned

ElPasoSpeak - Thu, 09/19/2019 - 5:00am

This portion of a slide came from the city’s website:

The footnote says: “Amounts listed are preliminary estimates subject to change.  Actual use of any approved bond funds will be determined by subsequent action of City Council”.

They are asking for a blank check.

Joe Moody - Making Bank...Capitulo Dos

Max Powers - Wed, 09/18/2019 - 6:38am
Joe Moody reporting to Rick Francis got me thinking about my former employer, Norma Chavez. Back when she served the good people of El Paso, she was ostracized by her own Delegation and Party. Sometimes it was partly on her, but the other times? It was because she was in... Max Powers

Senator Rodriguez has had enough of the good life and he's nice enough to step aside and let some other lucky El Pasoan have the best job you can get in El Paso. What job is that you ask -... Brad Kanus

Joe Moody - Making Bank

Max Powers - Tue, 09/17/2019 - 6:37am
Now we know why Joe Moody did NOT run for District Attorney after all. Sorry, but this whole "I’m more effective in Austin" while making part-time pay to provide for a family of four did not make a lot of sense. But now it does. Moody will probably make more... Max Powers

Constitution day

ElPasoSpeak - Tue, 09/17/2019 - 5:00am

Today is Constitution day.

Our governing document was signed in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787.

Thirty nine men signed the document.

I thank them.

There is a link at the top of this page that will take you to an electronic version.

I can’t help but wonder how much better off we would be if some of our legislators actually read it.

"Marisa has no chance!"

Max Powers - Mon, 09/16/2019 - 6:24am
Look, the Senate race may very well be already over should no one else of note throw their hat in the ring. But should Marisa Marquez decide to run for Senate, show your enemy a little more respect. Can she be a bitch? Sure, but how is that different from... Max Powers

Traffic jam

ElPasoSpeak - Mon, 09/16/2019 - 5:00am

Are our El Paso police instructed to not direct traffic at accident scenes?

The was an accident on Mesa the other day that brought the roadway down to one lane from three.  The police that were on scene did not direct traffic.  Instead they allowed the traffic lights to control the intersection.

The result was a long line of cars waiting to get through from one direction and no cars from the perpendicular direction.  The police stood around waiting for a wrecker.

Hopefully our readers can let us know what the city’s policy is in this regard.

Water park not decided

ElPasoSpeak - Sun, 09/15/2019 - 5:00am

The water park/hotel people were given 18 months to decide whether to take our $97 million dollar gift that they can use to build a $100 million hotel.

See Water park incentive totals.

The clock started ticking in November of 2018.

Could it be that they want more?

Marisa Marquez for State Senate

Now I know everyone knows that I pitch for Team Marquez, but I know a winner when I see one. She could very well be a contender in the race for Senate. Yes, there is Mary Gonzalez, and Cesar Blanco. And apparently Pickett. But let us just look at the... Max Powers

Jose Rodriguez - Finally Leaving!!!

Max Powers - Fri, 09/13/2019 - 9:00am
It's been rumoured for a while. But it is now official. Jose Rodriguez is not running for re-election. Now does everybody line-up behind Cesar Blanco? Does Mary Gonzalez decided to switch races? Whatever it is. I just hope it is not a coronation. Max Powers
