1. Remember you asked for the job.
2. Remember all your employers.
3. Do your job.

We deserve better

The Case Against The Wall

Max Powers - Tue, 01/08/2019 - 7:52am
I am gonna make a case against the wall. No, it has nothing to do with the fact it is a "waste of money" because it is not. A "waste of money" is a land war in western Asia. So why no wall then? Besides it affecting the possible re-introduction... Max Powers

Attracting industry

ElPasoSpeak - Tue, 01/08/2019 - 7:38am

Following up on the note about commercial property tax rates, let’s imagine that an industrial company wanted to move to El Paso and manufacture something.  Maybe they would like to make a component that one of the many plants in Mexico needs.

Or maybe the economic development people would like to attract a big manufacturer to town.

This might get in the way:

El Paso has the highest property tax rate for industrial concerns of the largest 50 cities in the United States.

Looking at the average rates we are close to twice as high.

We deserve better

No, Trump Cannot Declare an ?Emergency? to Build His Wall

If he did, and used soldiers to build it, they would all be committing a federal crime.
