A cursory scan reveals that is word for word identical to the paid advertisement that appeared in the El Paso Inc. yesterday.
Curious, don’t you think?
I reckon that the editors at the El Paso Inc. read the proposed guest column and decided that its message was too overtly political to run as a guest column, two days before a municipal election, and declined to run it. Then, whoever paid for the column, greased the skids.
So who paid for the column?
Do you reckon it was the same people behind the dark money campaign promoting “El Paso’s leaders”?
Then do you reckon that City Engineer Sam Rodriguez is working in concert with those same people?
Do you reckon that a city employee, writing under his official affiliation with the City of El Paso, should be campaigning in a city election?
Do you reckon it should cost him his job?
