I’ve always said that if you’re going to sell a blind horse, the first thing you tell the mark is how good that horse can see.
And that message hasn’t been lost on Dee Margo.
Can you believe that Mayor Margo is running on his response to the Coronavirus?
Mayor Margo has done less than nothing to prevent the spread of Covid in El Paso. When County Judge Ricardo Samaniego amped up restrictions for local businesses, Mayor Margo ran to the State Attorney General to squelch Judge Samaniego’s order.
Under Mayor Margo’s “regime,” the City bought five buildings with money that could have been used to support local businesses.
And remember that picture of Mayor Margo and his wife dining al fresco, sans mask, at the Country Club, surrounded by his Country Club admirers?
If Mayor Margo had just followed his own advice and stayed home (and kept his mouth shut), maybe El Paso wouldn’t today be one of the places hit hardest by the Coronavirus.
Wouldn’t that be a refreshing message for a campaign mailer?
“Vote for me. I fucked up.”
I think voters might appreciate honesty from the mayor, for a change.
