He points out that our population has only grown by 1.1% over the last six years.

Yet our city budget grows every year.

Max Grossman pointed out that the city general fund budget has grown 24% over the last five years.

Dental school

ElPasoSpeak - Sun, 06/09/2019 - 5:00am

The Woody and Gayle Hunt Family Foundation donated $25 million to start a dental school in El Paso.

The result will be the first dental school to be opened in Texas in almost 50 years.

Yes, the Hunt’s have made a lot of money in El Paso.

They did not have to donate the $25 million but chose to anyway.

I thank them.

This is better

Behind closed doors

ElPasoSpeak - Fri, 06/07/2019 - 5:00am

The situation we discussed in Rewriting history  continues to bother me.

Recapping, city council recently had an agenda item to approve the “corrected minutes” of a city council meeting held more than 12 years ago.

None of the city representatives, nor the mayor, nor the city manager, nor the city attorney were on board at that time.

How can any of them approve minutes as being accurate when they were not involved 12 years ago?

The minutes are being “corrected” for a reason.  Either someone wants something and the old minutes will not allow it, or they don’t want something that the old minutes require, is my guess.

The current group has not offered an explanation.

We deserve better
