The people of El Paso need to declare a JIHAD on commissioners court. Where is Osama Bin Laden when you need him?

I used to like my County Commissioner Dan Haggarty. No mas. He should be ashamed of himself as should Veronica Escobar for being too coward to vote.

Mr. Haggarty's vote was inconsistent with his previous voting policies. Usually he hates to spend money if it is totally unnecessary or is an exhorbitant amount that cannot be justified. Ms. Escobar just did not want to admit that she wanted a raise so she opted not to vote. As a good commisioner if she did not support the increase she should have let her constituents' voice be heard and voted no. If she wanted a raise she could have just said so and suggested a more appropriate amount. Justification is the key on this issue. Give me a good reason and back it up with hard facts and then we may not be so judgemental.

Besides the Mayor and City Council, how many El Pasoans have to take as much crap as the County Commissioners do? It's about time, let real people get in there and perform the job, not a part time individual. Although, I would like to see them quit all other jobs and only focus on the Commisioner's position, but what's fair is fair. If you don't like the increased amount, then you run for a commissioner's position and change it.
When I read your post, the word "Idiot" comes to mind.
