What You Need to Know

Is We Need Honest, Ethical, People, Who Know

How to Count, and Not Spend Away All of Our Money,

Or leave us In Debt Borrowing money On The Backs

Of the Taxpayers of elpaso.

What you nee to know is that We Need politicians

Who will stand up for the People of This Country

And Not for people from Other Countries

Who Don't Even Like us.

No More Spending, No More Debt, No More Amnesty,

No More Ignoring us elpasoans.

Enough with the radical social programs.

We need to Save Money, Not Waste It.

We also need to know to vote yes on all the bond issues. Like the lovely columnist said today in the Times, it's all for the children and they need our tender love and support, not to mention more of our dough. I vote two thumbs up on all the bonds.

My Fellow El Pasoans,

First of all, I want to tell you I am not going to trash my city with yard signs. I am a small businessman. I never planned to run for city council, but when our economy stalled and I read how city hall is spending our money, lack of services and high permit fees.... I thought I could help.

As an insurance expert, I have spent my career balancing budgets and helping El Pasoans save money in insuring their prized possessions. And as a conservative I think when our families are cutting back, government should cut back too.

Most El Pasoans are taxed by over 5 taxing entities. A tax increase is not on my agenda. Neither is creating a new one for public parks.

We need to make the environment at city hall, more business and citizen friendly, a public service place. I will push in that direction. We need a city government that we can go to for legitimate help. And letís get back to city hall staying open 5 days a week. You work 5 days a week, our public servants should too.

During our recent winter storm we were an unprepared city. Our city was literally crippled. Our frail and elderly had no guidance.

There are lessons to be learned. During an emergency, you don't obligate people whose homes are either flooding or without water to first pull a permit before they attempt repairs. That's a no-brainer. I will work hard toward fixing our errors and inefficiencies.

We need a city government that believes in traditional family values.

I am not a West-Side transplant. I was born and raised here. I am a product of our educational system having attended Morehead, a graduate of Coronado high school and a proud graduate of our hometown university, UTEP.

In this unpredictable economy, El Paso faces many challenges ahead.

If you think its time to put City Hall on a fixed income, I'd appreciate your vote.

I have the energy, enthusiasm & commitment to truly represent the citizens of District 1. Many thanks.

Sincerely,

Abe Peinado

Ann Morgan "Betti Flores" Lilly and Lyda "What a Mess" Garcia are raging a war of attrition. I have a feeling that once the smoke clears in District 1 we will be left with Tim "I Hope You All Go To Hell" Besco as our rep. I love this place!

What you really need to know is that all these goofballs are pre-selected status quo puppet shows to give you the illusion that you have a choice, and that you're a flea-picking ape for believing it.
