I noticed Annello didn't comment on the arena. Now its all about streets. Prior to May 6th it was arena, QOL projects and not streets.

EPT claims of criminal acts and investigations reminds me of the drama going on in DC regarding Russians, Trump, collusion and obstruction.

I think Firth needs to appoint a special "prosecutor" to investigate this Open Meetings alleged violation.

DK - Sure Romero got executed by " a political firing squad" - one lead by your 'lil buddy Tolbert, yet you say Tolbert is now the one being convicted by public opinion. You are the biggest hypocrite I know. You demonize Byrd and insult the voters in District 2. Yet, you totally ignore the fact that Tolbert was a Byrd ally and would still be if Byrd hadn't divorced him. Byrd tutored Tolbert in her ruthless slash-and-burn election tactics. Byrd wasn't happy to merely defeat Cushing, she destroyed him personally. Tolbert learned well. He knew he couldn't win against Romero in a clean fight, so he attacked Romero's marriage, business and personal integrity. When asked about this ruthless maligning of Romero, Tolbert merely said "oh well, that's the nature of blogs.”

And now you think you have "scared the paper into not making such slanderous claims... .” Sounds like you and your ‘lil buddy share delusions of grandeur.

Tolbyrd got (esco) barred for failure to sit on command. He did learn to bark nonstop and nip others.

Now, tolbyrd is a stray attacking anyone out of fear. He just doesn't get it that his mouth is the source of his being disliked. He does like bones although not allowed to have steak.

We are stuck with a chihuahua that is a wannabe cujo.

Sounds like Byrd minions are posting. Tolbert refused to pile on and fire Chief Allen. So Susie dumped him and BTW she is still trying to get the chief fired. Annello will do her dirty work. But why not sacrifice our great Chief and vote Annello because Tolbert is mean sometimes.

I didn't believe David KKK was telling the truth about the investigation until the deadbeat dad posted the email from DPS. I started to think maybe kkK was actually for once telling the truth. The email to EP media did not say who was being investigated. It did not say what was being investigated. that could have been a coincidence. And today the EP slimes and deadbeat dad both claim verification of an investigation and use a source with no name and don't have any details of what the investigation is about. deadbeat dad is lying. He is suzy's bitch.

Will Abeytia eat his words when no investigation materializes? Why the focus on Tolbert when it should be on the mayor? That would be a bigger story, whether he is still in office or not. The investigation cannot simply pick one of the offenders and ignore the other 4? (5?)

Tolbert caused the rolling quorum problem. He insisted on being included in the meeting that was already taking place.

Dog catcher - Tolbyrd - that's a good one. Permission to use?

Reader - Tolbyrd did pile on the Chief. Don't you remember he signed a letter censuring the Chief? And during a City Council meeting he called the Chief a lier. That's not what I call support.

He did not sign the letter that Bryd, Escobar, Stout and others signed. He did not cause the rolling quorum problem. Limon set up the meeting at Hotel Indigo; media showed up, Svarzbein showed up and played loud music and Tolbert showed up. They moved the meeting to city hall at the request of the Mayor who texted he wanted to meet with them - he along with Niland had been at MPO and I assume Niland heard about it from the Mayor and went along. There is no proof that 5 people were in the same room at the same time. 5 council members standing around the 2nd floor does not make it an Open Meetings violation. If that were true they would all be charged daily - because they all office near each other and they could all potentially be together and discussing an issue. At the council meeting when they voted to re-visit the issue of the site - no council member received a benefit for that vote. You have to receive something in exchange for "collusion" - violation of open meetings.

Phoenix Daughter is correct - why isn't Abeytia and Bryd and Annello focusing on the Mayor, Niland, Limon and Svarzbein? I mean really - why not? They get a pass because 3 of them will not be in office and one isn't up for re-election until 2018. How fair is that? Hey EPT and other media - report on the all of them, not just some of them. It certainly shows the media bias. It's no wonder ordinary every day people despise all media - print and digital. They all mislead, misstate and misrepresent the truth and facts.


why is everybody so hateful of Susie, Vero and Beto. They have done a lot for the district and this community. Tolbert is nothing but a wannabe politician. He is not and is taking orders from the Moreno camp and Norma camp. So what is the difference? Norma is upset that she lost her seat. What she does not understand is that people knew what she was up to. The only thing she did in all her time as a Rep., was to help Moreno change the name of a street. And she used tax payer money to pay her tuition at the university. Moreno spent about 30 yrs. as a Rep. and did nothing. Moreno still does not understand that El Paso is part of the USA. He only wants Mexicans in there. The USA is all about people. It does not matter where they come from, ethnicity, religion or anything. Be proud of being an American even in trying times like now. I always thought that David K. was very smart and respectful. But, now his blogs are so full of hate. As for Tolbert I hope he loses and never shows his face in Public again. And I know why I cannot stand him as an honest person. He is not honest, truthful, caring or anything positive.

Who Cares - Read Tolbyrd's texts. Even the ones he has released make it very clear that he heard about a meeting and was upset he wasn't invited. Tolbyrd texted the mayor and said he wanted to be in the meeting because he was a "key player." The mayor then started the rolling quorum so Tolbyrd wouldn't have his nose out of joint. Yes, the mayor and others violated the Texas Open Meetings Act. The issue is - do we want a mayor and Council members who knowingly violate the TOMA? Do we want a mayor and Council who decide issues outside of open meetings? Neither the mayor nor Niland are running. If Swarzbein runs again, I gan guarantee this will be an issue. Tolbyrd is not being singled out. I don't read the Slimes but I do know there are plenty of people upset about this violation of TOMA.

Anything I post on here can be used.

Escobyd are con artist and political opportunists. That's why they are disliked. They have the Midas touch as is said everything they touch turns to ....They have NO accomplishments unless you are counting all the wasted taxpayer money.

Tolbert is under investigation like Wilson is by the Texas Rangers. Boy does El Paso have a long wait! Esparza has to be laughing himself silly! Yep El Paso fail for it once again!

What does Chavez and Moreno have to do with anything? They are long gone in the political arena and no one cares about their opinion. It's funny to me that some posters on this blog apparently want their council members to be god-like. Every single incident that has been reported to the Texas Rangers including the Romero-Gonzalez, Wilson and ballpark bond sale has died a natural death at the Texas Rangers. Jaime Esparza has a record of stalling on filing charges against a sitting council member, Rachel Quintana and Ann Lilly. So if anyone on this blog believes the Rangers give a rats ass about this issue I have some beachfront property to sell to you.

Apparently the Rangers and DA's office are where old complaints go to die.

These two posts might be right on the money:

1. Who cares post: "Every single incident that has been reported to the Texas Rangers including the Romero-Gonzalez, Wilson and ballpark bond sale has died a natural death at the Texas Rangers. Jaime Esparza has a record of stalling on filing charges against a sitting council member, Rachel Quintana and Ann Lilly. So if anyone on this blog believes the Rangers give a rats ass about this issue I have some beachfront property to sell to you."

2. And Abandon Hope's post: "Apparently the Rangers and DA's office are where old complaints go to die."
