Rock and Roll Never Forgets

Max Grossman reports that District 8 Representative Cissy Lizarraga is appointing Steffen Poessiger to the City’s Historic Landmark Commission.

You remember Steffen Poessiger. He was the mastermind behind the City’s “It’s All Good” marketing campaign. Giving Mr. Poessiger’s firm the advertising contract for the city was the payoff for Mithoff Burton Partners’ participation in selling the ballpark to the citizens.

Or so it seems to me. Deals like that don’t get made in the light of day.

I reckon appointing Mr. Poessiger to the Historic Landmark Commission is one step in the process to build the arena in Duranguito. MountainStar Sports Group knows a good dog when they see one. And Mr. Poessiger sold the ballpark, so, it stands to reason, he’ll help sell the arena.

It’s all part of the war being waged on the taxpayers by MountainStar Sports Group, the City of El Paso, and the Downtown Management District.

(Alert readers will notice that the DMD has replaced the Chamber of Commerce in the Axis of Evil. The Chamber has been unusually silent since they hired their new CEO.)

I expect the City’s Historic Landmark Commission will come up with a new slogan.

“It’s All Old.”

  1. What ever happened to the Borderplex Alliance? Haven’t heard you mention them in the Axis of Evil in quite some time. I know they still exist but have they shifted their focus to something else?

    1. I think that they’re keeping their head down, trying to stay off my blog.

  2. “It’s all part of the war being waged on the taxpayers by MountainStar Sports Group, the City of El Paso, and the Downtown Management District.”

    Good metaphor Rich, framing the issue as a “war” being waged by the investor class against the taxpayer class. Really, a lot of what is happening at the national level can also be described as a class war being waged by a coastal liberal and media elite against the average Flyover Joe/Jose. From environmentalism to CRT to alphabet politics to tax policy (we keep our gains), antitrust (we love BIG), affordable housing (NIMBY), kinetic war (can’t get enough) the virtue signaling war continues and we are losing it.

    Maybe you can change that next year at least locally . I hope so.
