Ms. Tamayo - the fighter you probably don't need

Thu, 11/14/2019 - 8:04am
The lovely Ms. Tamayo filed to run for the District 76 house seat on the actual first day you could sign up (November 9th). I'm a fan of her eagerness and a bigger fan of her campaign staff not letting... Brad Kanus

Update on the former mayor

Wed, 11/13/2019 - 8:29am
I got word over the weekend that the former mayor trying to be the next mayor will not hire Lily Limon in any capacity if he wins. This is good news. However, I still don't get why she's connected in... Brad Kanus

You gave them permission to take $100 million more

Tue, 11/12/2019 - 9:54am
I hate to say it, but I can't feel sorry for those of you whining about another certificate of obligation (CO)vote for tens of millions of dollars. You keep electing these people. Guys like Max Grossman who complains daily about... Brad Kanus

Lost Dog Lawsuit

Fri, 11/08/2019 - 9:16am
The city pigeonholed the Lost Dog Land Thieves at the last meeting when Svarzbein gave a completely misleading presentation about conservation easements. Basically they decided to pretend to "study the issue" longer in order to end the meeting. They have... Brad Kanus

Y'all love taxes

Wed, 11/06/2019 - 1:16pm
Well... pretty sure the "people have spoken" and they said they want higher taxes. I can't wait for the folks who claimed the Lost Dog vote was approved by the majority of voters to start crying about how the bond... Brad Kanus

"Transparent" doesn't mean what it used to, I guess...

Tue, 11/05/2019 - 12:16pm
The lovely Ms. Tamayo put out a fundraising email and it's straight out of political central casting. We've got education, taxes, health care - the whole family is here! Politicians think you are stupid so they throw these campaign patois... Brad Kanus

A new quarry and the cost of Duranguito

Wed, 10/30/2019 - 1:26pm
It's hunting season, so that's taking all my time right now. Wanted to touch on a couple of things, though. First, the Lost Dog trail goes back into the abyss with council voting to keep exploring a conservation easement... which... Brad Kanus

I didn't see that coming - D76 Notes

Thu, 10/24/2019 - 8:32am
One of the most non-controversial members of council will be leaving to run for the seat being vacated by San Antonio resident, Cesar Blanco. Councilwoman Ordaz is looking to be called Representative Ordaz... Which is great, I guess. Here's my... Brad Kanus

Duranguito survives!

Wed, 10/23/2019 - 6:16am
Great win for those people who hate private property rights! The rest of you are kind of screwed. I mean, if you yourself is more than 50 years old, He Who Shall Not Be Named Because He Has An Army... Brad Kanus

You don't see that everyday...

Fri, 10/18/2019 - 7:13am
I told you that the "ethics complaint" against the mayor was an egregious abuse of the ethic committee's time and duties. Disguising your hate for an individual in a frivolous complaint is just low. Especially since we pretty much know... Brad Kanus

Little updates on big things

Wed, 10/16/2019 - 11:59am
The Lost Dog item was postponed by Rep. Svarzbein who was likely called every name in the book by Bonart and friends after the "back up" for the agenda item suggested they (the city) wouldn't be pursuing a conservation easement... Brad Kanus

Tamayo endorsed and you should be terrified

Tue, 10/15/2019 - 9:05am
I got a campaign email from the Tamayo campaign for Rep. Cesar Blanco's soon to be emptied Texas house seat. Why they put me on these lists is beyond my comprehension... Why would you let me in? I'm not the... Brad Kanus

Inconsistent positions on strict adherence to ballot language

Read this: Shall an ordinance be approved to preserve in its natural state, for all time, the 1,107 acres owned by the City of El Paso and referred to as "Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone Number Twelve," which includes the "Lost... Brad Kanus

My point is made yet again

Mon, 10/07/2019 - 10:32am
News came last night to me that the Hysterical Society folks had, for lack of a better word, "lost" their case to keep the City of El Paso from demolishing the fictional neighborhood they call "Duranguito." I hate to use... Brad Kanus

Time to pay the Speaker

Fri, 10/04/2019 - 9:19am
You may have heard that a local Congressperson is looking to have a few fundraisers as she looks at her 2020 renewal of contract. You could bet she's going to be re-elected with 100 percent of the vote, so it's... Brad Kanus

District 76 - First Puppet Announces

Tue, 10/01/2019 - 9:02am
Cesar Blanco is nice fellow. He doesn't seem to do much harm to anyone. Rumor has it he's nice enough not to burden his constituents by even living in El Paso with them . That's why I say he's a... Brad Kanus

Setting the Record Straight - An explainer for Grossman

Mon, 09/30/2019 - 9:59am
For some reason Max Grossman doesn't pay attention to the details when it comes to people he sees as "the enemy." I, apparently, am the enemy. And he says defamatory things about my parents and their business even though they... Brad Kanus

Consistently inconsistent - Ankle-biters

I have two kids and I enjoy watching their morality shift when the situation changes. My daughter thinks everyone should have cake... until there's only a one piece left - she is then sure that only she should have cake.... Brad Kanus

A new way to steal your property

Tue, 09/24/2019 - 10:04am
Apparently some indigenous people once walked across the land that is now the future site of the unneeded arena - AKA "Duranguito." I still kind of wonder why nobody giggles when someone seriously refers to the area as "Duranguito" given... Brad Kanus

I'm confused about the complaints

Mon, 09/23/2019 - 10:14am
I think it was Rich Wright who wrote a piece on El Chuqueno claiming, or at least suggesting, that the city is headed toward insolvency. Of course, I had a bunch emails saying this from different people, so it could... Brad Kanus
