Poor Dee Margo. He is completely out of touch.
Here’s a paragraph from his recent response to an open letter from Mayor Oscar Leeser:
Under Gonzalez’s fiscally prudent leadership, we have improved our downtown, opened new hotels and water parks throughout our city, and passed a 2019 Public Safety Bond for a Far East regional police command center, a new fire and police headquarters, new training facilities, all designed to keep us safe and reinforce El Paso as one of the safest cities in the nation.
Can you believe that former Mayor Dee Margo included the water parks in the same sentence he used the words “fiscally prudent leadership”?
There was nothing fiscally prudent about the four water parks, built at a cost of $72 million, and running multi-million dollar deficits every year. Even their new liquor licenses won’t save us.
If you’re trying to sell a blind horse, the first thing you tell the mark is what good eyesight the horse has.
We’ve been following the wrong path for years, and Mr. Margo is trying to tell us to stay the course.
