NPT Capitol: So, who’s paying for this?

You already know El Paso is invading Austin today and tomorrow, and one of the highlights — aside from the heavy pitches for El Paso priorities such as UTEP and Tech funding and Tigua gambling — is the Margarita Madness party tonight. For background, check through his blog, or read this NPT story

So who’s paying for the party? Well, the city and county are in as Title Sponsors. The next level, Diamon Sponsors, includes highway contractor Abrams, lobbyists HillCo Partners, and Texas Tech Health Sciences Center. Platinum includes the Tiguas and Hunt Companies. Gold, Silver and Bronze include Hoy Fox Automotive, Hector Gutierrez Jr., JDW Insurance, and Moreno Cardenas, Inc. For the full list of sponsors, click on the picture.
