From the May 29, 2017, El Paso Inc.:
[Mayoral candidate Dee Margo] says he’ll take what’s broken at City Hall and fix it the old fashioned way, using teamwork, focus and hard work. He’s also come very close to making the ultimate promise – no more taxes.
At the same time, he acknowledges the all but unstoppable forces of unpreventable higher bond payments and hard pressing needs for more cops and better roads.
Asked how far he’d go to keep from raising taxes, Margo said, “I’ll go as far as I can go. We cannot afford any more tax increases given what we’re dealing with here with all of these bond issues.”
Apparently, the metamorphosis of candidate Dee Margo into Mayor Dee Margo involved a heavy dose of Stockholm Syndrome.
Or maybe he was lying the whole time.
Not that I would ever call the mayor a liar.
