NPT Capitol: Marquez, Chavez feud “a long standing El Paso tradition”

The fall out from the latest round of feuding between El Paso state Reps Norma Chavez and Marisa Marquez is causing a mini-stir this morning at the Capitol.

One state Rep told NPT they are “sick and tired of it” and called it a “public embarrassment.”

The state Rep, who wished to remain anonymous, added that it was “a long standing El Paso tradition” which made the delegation hard to work with.

Another said that delegations need to have “their own house in order” before trying to get things done in Austin. They added that the delegation they were part of worked hard look united in public even though they didn’t agree on everything.

  1. Another stupidity is having 4 Democrats parties in one city. Only in El Paso and you wonder about the small town image.

    Even worse you actually believe that skyscapers and trollies is a sign of being a big city, LOL. The people MUST CHANGE before the city can grow.

  3. Considering there is a “long standing tradition” and considering that this is Marisa Marquez’s first term, it doesn’t take a genius to see who is at the center of this embarrassing behavior for El Paso: NORMA CHAVEZ.

  4. The effectiveness of Norma Chavez was limited at best, but after so many years, its time that EL Paso voted her out of office. IF there is a challenger for the position vote him or her in, they can only do better than Chavez. Some success is better that 100% failure. Norma got achieved her goal, by obtaining her degree, that is was an outstanding one, but sheused tax payers money to do this ETHICS is or was not a word taught where she attended school. El Paso have you had enough. Norma do EL Paso a favor quit and just blend into the night.
