Let me get this straight, the El Paso County government, full of employees and politicians who couldn't make it in the private sector, is holding a "business seminar" designed to instruct local businesses on how to be successful???!!!!

Only in the Bizzarro World of El Paso......

Government consists of many departments that include several people. Of course, there are some local governments that dont know their a s s from a hole in the ground, but not Escobar. She is setting an example for other close minded El Pasoans, including Bizarro Word (idiot), to promote El Paso and create fun activities for our tourists.

Bizarro World, get a life.

Kudos for trying to help El Paso. So much negativity here and finally an effort to allow busineses to utilize our natural assets. We need more politicians like Escobar to help this community grow the way it should.

Sorry I'm such an idiot and I have no life. I forgot about Veronica's incredibly accomplished career in the private sector off the government tit. Remind me again how she made herself millions in the real world please?

All Ms Escobar is-is out for herself. She has attended the Community Scholars Presentations and has completely shown her ignorance. These are high school kids doing city and civic research. Some of these topic recommendations have to do with hypothetical situations that you just can't get enough solid research on (or city council members to meet and talk with them). She completely bashed more than one of the presentations--stating "she has learned nothing new". Maybe its because during one of the presentations she was texting on her phone for the good majority of the presentation and not really listening to what they were saying. Yeah!!! its great thinking out of the box--but do you realize where we live and what the economic issues are here on the border? Ms. Escobar is living in her own utopia dream world.---Come next election--I for one will NOT be voting for someone who has a problem bashing high school kids--who likes to hear herself talk-- and can not live in the real world---Ms. Escobar--I am truly disappointed in your comments during some of the Community Scholar Presentations and truly disappointed in your behavior (texting). These are high school kids who work very hard during the summer months. Some groups have even given up evenings and weekends to attend community meetings for their research. You should be ashamed of yourself!!! I really believe you owe these kids an apology! Its ok to disagree but not ok-- to demean. And by the way---People in glass houses should NOT be throwing stones!!!

Veronica Escobar used to draw a huge salary from the Community Scholars. It's really something Ray Caballero, Eliot Shapleigh and Jose Rodriguez set up to shake down local businesses for donations in order to pay their disciples, like Veronica, huge salaries. The kids are just irrelevant pawns to the whole scam, as evidenced by your account of Veronica 's behavior.
