NPT City: Apartment Association endorsements in mayor and City Council races

El Paso, Texas – April 3, 2009 – The El Paso Apartment Association (EPAA) Better Government PAC on behalf of the EPAA endorses the following candidates for the May 9, 2009 city election:

For Mayor Gus Haddad

For City Representative, District 2 Yamil Chaheine

For City Representative, District 3 Jose Alexandro Lozano

For City Representative, District 4 Melina Castro

For City Representative, District 7 Trini Muñoz

Melanie Bailey, President of the EPAA stated, “The endorsements were made after thoughtful deliberation. Our responsibility is to keep monthly rents affordable for our community and incoming military families. The current majority council and mayor are making that very challenging by unfairly targeting apartment residents and the vendors with whom we do business with. We’ve seen fees go up at unprecedented rates during the last four years. We’ve asked to sit around the table to discuss how we can work together only to receive the cold shoulder. We must put a stop to that.” Read the rest of this entry »
