I do not if I being played here or not, but I have been told a rumour that out-going State Representative Marisa Marquez is considering running for El Paso City Council.
She would be running against beloved City Representative Jim Tolbert.
If you had asked me before, I would have said Tolbert keeps his seat, but he won't if Marquez runs.
I thought Marquez was too busy being pregnant.
But I guess not so much anymore.
The money in El Paso likes her, and she is not exactly unfamiliar with the district.
If she could beat a 40-year incumbent, certainly she can beat one that has been in office less than a year.
If she runs and wins, well, that puts her in the driver's seat later down the road for Mayor.
So what's Tolbert to do?
Call up Lina Ortega and ask if she still needs to hire a staffer in El Paso?
