I did not want to post about Mary Gonzalez again, but your member of the El Paso Delegation is just a gold mine for all the wrong reasons.
She is quoted in another story about El Paso leaders backing the removal of the EPISD Board of Trustees as saying:
"There were some statements in there about how this is not going to disenfranchise voters," Mary Gonzalez said. "I'm not really ready to say that it doesn't. Not that I don't agree, but I want to talk to a lawyer before I say something (emphasis added)."
Huh? Talk to a lawyer about what? Don't give me this nonsense about discrimination and voting laws. This is El Paso 2013, not Johannesburg 1980.
Rarely, if ever, does an elected official mention that he or she needs to seek legal counsel. When he or she does they are usually the subject of an investigation. Even then, said official will decline to comment.
Come on, Mary. You have a PhD in something, and you have "experienced" staff. The scandal at EPISD is probably the biggest issue facing El Pasoans today, and you need to seek legal counsel before you offer an opinion on it?
I am not sure Mary is exactly an upgrade over Chente.
