NPT City: Fort Bliss loves Mayor Cook

Question: Does this count as a campaign donation? 🙂 News release from Fort Bliss yesterday (March 25, 2009)

Fort Bliss Recognizes Mayor as Citizen of the Year

FORT BLISS, Texas-Fort Bliss Commanding General Maj. Gen. Howard B. Bromberg presented the Christiaan Petrus Fox Citizen of the Year, FY 2008, Award to Mayor John F. Cook. The presentation took place at Patriot Hall earlier today.

Bromberg recognized Cook for his continued support to the American Soldier, their Families, and the Fort Bliss community. His efforts
culminated in thousands of community members lining the streets of El Paso for the Welcome Home Heroes Parade in February 2008 which honored Fort Bliss Soldiers returning from Operation Iraqi/Enduring Freedom. His active participation in the Association for Regional Military Support Committee and the Association of the U.S. Army provides valuable insight on military issues for Team El Paso to share with Congressional leadership on their semi-annual trips to Washington, DC. His actions embody the highest standards of honesty, integrity, courage and loyalty, and deserve recognition as the Christiaan Petrus Fox Citizen of the
Year, FY 2008.

The Christiaan Petrus Fox Citizen of the Year Award recognizes a local citizen for their outstanding contributions to and support of the military and Fort Bliss.

  2. You got that right. It’s like giving someone the key to the city, all PR to keep the natives friendly. In the old days, they used to give beads and mirrors.

  3. Mayor Cook, himself a Vietnam vet has always supported the El Paso military community. Few active duty folks vote locally but vets do.

  4. Except for places like San Francisco and Oakland, the Mayors have always supported the military.

    Carlos Rivera has always supported Veterans by helping them develop businesses and VA claims. He is a retired VA center Director.
