NPT City: Castro: ‘Warm congratulations’ and a ‘look forward to debating the issues’

City Rep. Melina Castro issued a news release this morning in response to the news, broken on NPT, that Carl Robinson is getting the endorsement of the other candidates in the Northeast El Paso city rep race.

Press Statement

The media has informed me that unsuccessful candidates that had wanted to represent our district in the general election are endorsing my opponent, Mr. Carl Robinson. I extend my warm congratulations on this achievement and look forward to debating the issues with him between now and the run-off election.

Message to Northeast Voters

The Northeast voter has a great deal of pride, knows the issues and demands solid and ethical representation.

It is up to Northeast voters and taxpayers to decide whether they want me to continue to represent fiscally conservative values or whether they will unleash a Council majority that favors unstoppable spending of tax dollars without voter approval.

I will continue to represent a responsible stewardship of your tax dollars.

This is Rep. Melina Castro and I ask for your vote on June 6th

  1. Over 70% have rejected Rep. Melina Castro. She has not represented the Northeast. Her strings have been pulled by others.

  2. ken, you usually are very conservative. whats happened recently. you come out of the closet or something. castro is against spending when it means co’s. robinson will be a puppet of the progressives. tax,tax and spend some more. she has represented those who want fiscal responsibility. she wanted the stormwater under elected officials control and not hitler archuleta. she has voted like holguin on most things but yet luther owns her ? luther is done in this town. she knows it and the people who support her could care less about luther. she has new supporters now. those who want fiscal responsibility.
