I really liked this article, although it would have been more apropos to say she's grabbing the bull by the balls instead of taking the reins. She's not a horse rider but she is a bull rider in every sense of the idiom. I only wish some of her bulls would have come forward with photos and/or videos before the election. That way, even if it had not swayed the voting public, at least we would have some fresh material for titillation, so to speak.

Alright Veronica, I am sure that you will do what is best for our county. Don't let the negatives get to you, or to put it better, don't give your valuable time or thought to the negative comments here. All that they want is to hurt and make people's lives miserable since they don't have better things to say or do.
If they think they have it all to bring changes, then why didn't they run for County Judge, instead of critizing you, but oh no, they know better than you do.
I will say this, how do they expect to get more if they don't pay taxes, and I am not saying that you will do so, but if you do I have no problem. Nothing is free. I might not be rich, but I have never minded paying taxes to see progress. Many want and expect more, but they don't like to give their share.
So Veronica, you do your job and we the people that want change will support you 100 percent plus!!!!!!!
You said you don't mind paying more taxes. I wonder if you are a home owner? I have a huge problem with the people who are moving here from MX and getting DL and cars from NM and never registering their cars. Then there are those with the audacity to come here with MX plates and getting reduced rent while they take their kids to our schools for free while keeping their house in MX. They come and go as they please but we need them to register their cars so we can afford to support our schools and roads and bridges. I hope someone can address this issue so those of us who pay taxes don't have to pay more when clearly those from MX aren't helping with their share. Why won't Ms. Aguilar look for them to pay more? Because that would mean she would commit political suicide and imply that she is against Hispanics instead of showing her consttuents she cares more about the whole community.
