Subject: Dee Margo for Mayor
Dee Margo has been a tireless public servant as our Mayor. He has faced an Immigration Crisis, the Tragedy of August 3, and the current pandemic of COVID19.
Mayor Margo has managed all of these challenges with courage, leadership, respect, and most of all – with the love he feels for our community and the residents of El Paso.
If you think back to where we were prior to Dee Margo being elected Mayor, we were a community stuck in neutral-many of the Quality of Life Bond Projects from 2012 had been put on hold, our public infrastructure was crumbling, and economic development efforts were stalled.
When Dee was elected, he immediately went to work holding the line on taxes, passed the largest Public Safety Bond in the history of our community; and created thousands of jobs for our citizens, including the most recent Amazon announcement of a Fulfillment Center in El Paso.
Despite numerous challenges, Dee has continued to move our City forward.

El Paso deserves More-We need Mayor Margo for Four-More Years.
I encourage you to forward my message to your family, friends, and associates and ask them to do the same.
Mr. Hunt is feeding us lies. If Mr. Hunt knew much about finance, he’d know that passing a huge bond is incompatible with “holding the line on taxes”. And I have to think that Mr. Hunt knows something about finance.
If Mr. Hunt read El Chuqueño, he’d know that Amazon is building distribution centers all over the U.S., and Mayor Margo probably didn’t know about the fulfillment center in El Paso County till some reporter asked him.
That’s not “holding the line on taxes”.
Mayor Margo isn’t holding the line on taxes. He’s holding the taxpayers’ heads underwater.
The City and the oligarchs are lying to us about Mayor Margo’s accomplishments, the same way they lied to us about the Quality of Life bonds, the ballpark, hotel taxes, and economic development. They are trying to suck all the blood they can from this turnip.
You know, they wouldn’t be able to lie to the citizens if El Paso had an effective press. Investigative journalists. Honest reporters. But that boat left the dock a long time ago.
