That’s the latest rumor to emanate from the bowels of City Hall.
According to the rumor, the City of El Paso is looking to streamline some of its operations by merging the Museums and Cultural Affairs, Parks and Recreation, and Libraries departments.
And, according to the rumor, the new organization will be headed by Bryan Crowe.
He’s not even an employee of the City of El Paso. Mr. Crowe is on the payroll of ASM Global.
When Mayor Dee Margo asks, “What do you want me to cut?” the answer isn’t the bloated vanity projects that have blown up the city budgets for the last 8 years.
The answer is the public services that many El Pasoans depend on. Museums, cultural affairs, parks and recreation, and libraries.
Neo-liberalism has trickled down to our municipal government.
Welcome to the future.
