The eruption of voters anger will cleanse the city of its inept.

The taxpayers will be heard, their voice will be respected.

The prospect of domination of the nationís scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system ó ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.

With all the corruption and cheating in ElPaso I have some concern about voter fraud and who is counting the ballots and everything is run fair and square. Think about it

<quoted text> What's the deal? Lesser never going to say shit about anything till after he Wardy Haggerty the rest of the republicans have done what it is they want to do and then they'll tell us we can kiss their ass. You wanted it you got it. Not be surprised to see a guy that has been speaking American 3 months being the El Paso Mayor's press agent.
I hope whomever wins hires a hottie for their press secretary so we get more than verbal information from them. Perhaps Maria Garcia would be interested? She's quite a looker from head to toe and she can bring it too.

The El Paso Times has been disproportionately supporting Bomber Stevie over Oscar Lesser. Now just how far a reach does it take to realize the Slam Dunk they could suffer if the Giants don't get their way? How many Lackey's do we want in office? Puppets anyone?
