Max Powers has the story in a roundabout way HERE. I want to make a clear point about what the following document shows:
Holguin promised he'd get outside donations to cover the park. He did not. He got a whopping $12,050 from generous El Pasoans (I don't blame the donors for trying to help out). The number was supposed to more like $25,000.
So, not only did Holguin shove this park display down council's throat and end up with a half-assed national embarrassment of a Christma display, he failed to fund the whole thing like he said he would. He embodies the lies he told about the ballpark deal. He must have been "projecting" as people my age say these days.
