The City thinks the way to make El Paso attractive is to tart her up like a hooker in a prom dress.
The City’s searching out sexy accessories, like TopGolf, and the ballpark, and all the other glitzy entertainment and retail options our city officials have been courting and foisting on us.
They’re just looking for dates, when what El Paso needs is a committed relationship. Not a series of one-night stands with carpetbagging transients. Believe me, I’ve been on both sides of that blanket. I know it when I see it.
The most recent example of the City’s misguided attempts at economic development is TIRZ 12 on the west side off of Transmountain. Our municipal leaders think it’s a good idea to subsidize sprawl by incentivizing the development on top of pristine desert trails.
Some open space advocates, led by Dr. and Dr. Bonart, are circulating petitions to let the City know that the citizens are opposed to the senseless squandering of our natural patrimony.
If you haven’t already, you can sign the petition today at the Podium Finish Sport Boutique Cafe, 921 B Texas Avenue, at 2 pm.
Maybe afterwards we can stop by the Mexican Cottage for what might be the best Mexican food in El Paso, and a frosty.
If you can’t find your voter registration card, you can save the folks circulating the petitions a little hassle by getting your voter registration number (your VUID) here, at epcountyvotes.com.
If El Paso wants to get in a committed relationship, she has to start pursuing real values instead of cheap thrills.
Believe me, I’ve been on both sides of that blanket.
