I just wanted to point out that the $40 million or so in certificates of obligation the mayor vetoed would have violated the nonexistent rule all you whiney morons cited in the case for hanging the city manager.
Yep, the street improvements part were for streets not on "the list." You remember the sacred list of streets developed by council and staff that is so iron clad that it would take Christ himself to change it? Yeah, well had this had passed a whole bunch of streets not on the list would have been redone first. And if you believe the El Paso Times and Jaime Abeytia - that's a felony.
The truth is that this "emergency level need" (as one insider described it to me) proves that the list of streets slated for improvement isn't what you guys claimed - set in stone and the law of the land. Of course, the city attorney and a few others repeatedly told you this, but God knows you guys don't let facts get in the way of assassinating someone's character.
If the paper was honest... if other bloggers were honest - they'd be beating on the members of city council who voted to do exactly what you said was a crime. But, you are not honest... so you won't.
As for the other part of the certificate of obligation - the part where they make up for all they money they were short on quality of life bond projects... You should be cancelling the whole damn thing. You got bad numbers. You have the privilege of voting again to scrap the deal since you weren't given the correct figures to begin with. I suggest you do so.
