What I am really curious about is why Quintana took a trip at taxpayer expense a few weeks ago. She is not running for office and her term expires in May. What did the taxpayer get by her attending an out-of-town conference? This is what is not fair.

How about that El Paso Times? Is it true she took a trip, who authorized it? How much did it cost us and what was it for?

The City decided in its infinite wisdom to go into the garbage business. Although expansion was probably necessary, now taxpayers will have to foot the bill for a larger expansion than anticipated. It could have been done in smaller phases but now the larger expansions are needed sooner. As for the bidding process, this is typical of the city. The technicality on the low bid was not that big a deal. Now that everyone knows what the low bid was, only the low bidder will rebid and probably add some to his contract to keep the mobilization portion on his schedule of values under 3%. The other bidders may bid again but losing the extra $300k may not be affordable to them. The City (or should I say the taxpayer) is the loser in this deal.

This sounds like an Acosta Deal, wonder how much on kick backs is she getting ...Quintana has to spend her allotted budget, so what does it matter to her, she tried to fly by lying and the city has not done a thing, so why would anyone expect any thing different from the crooks at city hall.
