IF Reyes addresses all folks who disagree like he did my Inquiry

I would not vote for Robert O'Rourke even if GOD sat there and said to. He is a left-wing radical progressive pushing legalizing drugs. He is very much worse than Reyes has ever been. He is the one who would really be "TAX ans SPEND" raising our taxes higher and higher along with the marijuana smoke he would be toking. His ideas on the downtown revitalization are in the process of raising taxes for El Paso voters. He is one of the instruments into placing art all over town just to be placing money in the pockets of others from out of county and out of state. He will turn around in the congress and vote to overturn DOMA and legalize same-sex marriage even when it is in violation of his churches Canon law and teachings. As I have said I will not vote for him for any reason

This is the same person that pushed very hard for more malls. And what do malls do? Destroy downtown shopping! Now he wants to build up shopping downtown? Does he really know if he is coming or going? Again, being very naive, he claims he would have the influence to break bills into smaller parts and then pass them. What an ego trip! Apparently he doesn't Congress.

El paso is one big strip mall.

Drive around and that's all you see.

There is nothing to attract any reasonable person to central city, that's why the court house is there as well as city hall.

It's a pipe dream to think that there will EVER be anything to attract anyone to central city.

Be realistic!

Just how much has chubby enriched his family by?

Faulty cameras to Border Patrol, oh yes......

Just were are those drones?

The fenceless border in the county is endangering el paso residents....
And Reyes takes credit ..... Nancy pelosi landing In el paso at how many millions???

Flowers on transmountain, at the expense of border security......

With the upcoming election being the most important, see how the deviates come out and try to poison the well.

Back to the issue,

Has Reyes done anything worthy of having him continue?

The border is still wide open, drugs flow north, more Hollywood cocaine users are dieing and the flowers on transmountain were planted with border security money...

Only Reyes children and family benefitted.... See how they take care of their own.

Education is still the pits, businesses are starving, and the Juarez mess is a drug driven American mess.

What has Reyes DONE to alleviate the cartel from Juarez?

Nada

Not one word or deed to address the drug appetite!

Well, not in public ......

Cameras didn't were a failure? How many people do you know would sneak into a place by walking towards a security camera. So we don't know how many were deterred. Drones are not meant to be seen. While I agree the fence could be better, the other Dem choice wants open borders with more bridges and minimal checks! And legalize drugs in a naive belief that will deter the cartel. Really? Weed is harmless, really? If smoking cigarettes causes lung cancer, why would you believe inhaling weed wouldn't?

Linda, do the research. He does not have the super PAC supporting him. He didn't get the money and he knows it but pushed the misleading story to get the Republican votes. Reyes knows Orourke didn't get the money and pushed the story to get Dems to not vote for Robert. Do the research yourself if you don't believe this comment.

Jerome tigleman has about enough of a chance of winning the congressional race as mr. d has of admitting that he is NOT a racist POS bigot - even though he is married to a mexican.

Joyce, you need to ask? There was a video,on the blogs, of Byrd and orourke soused. And she was on stage spanking his buttocks. Two married people! How could you miss his arrest photo? Look around it is still on some blogs. How many people have a relative that discovers 600,000 dollars, in their account, only after the IRS confronts them? There's much more, do the research.
