NPT Media: Troubled Times?

Brace yourself, Times. You’ve got visitors. We are prepared to feel your pain. Seriously, I know we don’t always play nice with each other. But the better you are, the better we are, and the better off El Paso is. Best of luck, folks. I got my fingers crossed …

  1. Sito, I got my fingers crossed, too. But the present administration and the tax-fee-spend city council has managed to get the city in such financial bad shape. I plan to cross my legs as well until there’s a new Mayor and some of the free spenders are gone from the council.

    We need a fiscal responsible Mayor. Folks take a look at Carlos Rivera, he knows how to get us out of this mess. Check it out,

    Sito, This is about as nice as I can be and be honest.

  2. If NPT and the El Paso Times start playing nice, who will keep the other honest—or as honest as one can come to in a City where actions, opinions, thoughts are controlled by the allmighty dollar?

    I’ve seen posts asking for a reporting of all the tax increases, fees, assessments, bonds, CODs, etc., and neither NPT or the Times has seen it fit to inform the readers.

    Now you’re going to play nice????

    Heaven help the citizens of El Paso.

  5. SITO, is npt handing out unpaid furloughs like the times ? notice that none of the public entities you are going after in your columns arent having to suffer.
    thats the episd employees, county, city, epwu, psb, and all the other school districts. the only entity i see laying off or cutting back is the fire and police and those are probably the ones that shouldnt cut back because of the situation in juarez. i really doubt that epwu would miss archuleta getting a month unpaid furlough. sito, im sure there are many others you could think of on your own that could take a furlough that we wouldnt miss at all.
    however, public entities will never have to suffer. look at california and its mess with its public employees. its all about taxing the private sector to pay for these overpaid people. one day we will be just like mexico where there are more government employees than there are private. we are getting there now. just llok at your poll on “are they worth the money. only public servants would vote yes. if i had a new business their is no way i would come to el paso. i would go to santa t. first. if i ever sell my real estate i will move my business there and my kids will still go to school here because i will do what everyone else does and use a relatives address. this city’s public entities are breaking tour city’s private sector. soon there wont be enough private sector to pay for these overpaid people and then we have become mexico.
