You still have some money left

ElPasoSpeak - Thu, 03/05/2020 - 6:00am

I can’t remember where but I recently heard our city manager lecturing people about our local property tax rates.

His point was that the cost of living in El Paso is so low that even with our high taxes citizens enjoy a good economic deal in El Paso.

It looks like he doesn’t see the need to keep our taxes under control.

We deserve better

Jaime Abeytia Gets His Ass Handed To Him, Again!

El Paso News - Wed, 03/04/2020 - 6:00am
Self-proclaimed election “guru,” Jaime Abeytia yet again proved what a joke he is. Last year, in March to be exact, I shared with you how Jaime Abeytia lost the “dog catcher” race for his wife/paramour/significant other (not sure which at this point). Read it here. Yesterday, Jaime Abeytia, yet again lost “dog catcher” race number […]

We’re number one again

ElPasoSpeak - Wed, 03/04/2020 - 6:00am

I picked this up from elpasomatters.com.

Since the 2010 census, 50,000 more people have moved out of El Paso to other U.S. communities than have moved in. When expressed as a percentage of 2010 population, El Paso’s migration loss is the largest among any urban county in the continental United States west of the Mississippi River.

Quality of life

Evidently not.

We need new leadership at city council.

We deserve better

Shrinking school districts

ElPasoSpeak - Mon, 03/02/2020 - 6:00am

Mr.  Moore over at elpasomatters.org published a remarkable set of statistics the other day in a post about public school enrollment in El Paso:

El Paso County schools – including both traditional school districts and charter schools – had 34,603 students enrolled in kindergarten, first grade and second grade this year, according to data released in March 2019 by the Texas Education Agency. That’s down more than 5,000 from the 2011-12 enrollment in those grades, according to TEA records, a decline of 13%.

********************

Those 5,000 fewer students will soon be missing from upper grades at the children get older.

Yet the school districts continue to build new schools.

We deserve better
