Here’s what City Manager Tommy Gonzalez said in an interview with CBS4Local:
Gonzalez also listed iFly and Top Golf as some new venues to come to El Paso. But he added he wants El Paso to get more. He referred to the college town of Lubbock having Main Event. The venue has party rooms offering bowling, laser tag, mini-golf, an arcade and American fare, according to its website.
“Lubbock is a third of our size, that’s where I was born and raised. That should piss you off that they’re not here so that’s what gets me up in the morning in El Paso cause I stay pissed off on things that people don’t understand,” said Gonzalez.
It kind of pisses me off that Mr. Gonzalez is not still in Lubbock (with his family).
El Paso is not Lubbock. El Paso is not Dallas, or Austin, or Houston, or Albuquerque or Phoenix.
Mr. Gonzalez reminds us that we may lose him.
“If you won’t play by my salary at that time next summer next year when they vote on that, if you want to get rid of that then fine. I’ll go somewhere else, but you won’t have this leadership and place,” said Gonzalez.
I wish him well in his future endeavors.
