Let me preface this post by saying American Express is fantastic.
Its point system is the best.
Also, you can tell how civilized a place is by their acceptance of American Express.
Like beautiful Bogota, Colombia. Almost everywhere I went accepted it. Lisbon, Portugal? Not so much.
"Max, what does your hard-on for a credit card have to do with anything?"
Well, because it appears your mayoral frontrunner, David Saucedo, too had hard-on for American Express.
But somewhere along the way Saucedo's thing for American Express went south.
Apparently, American Express took your mayoral frontrunner to court: Download CaseID=7026501.
Now, could this be another Saucedo?
We would need to ask Saucedo.
But just as important, does it matter?
Well, yes. For the last several years all levels of local government in El Paso have taken out credit cards to buy things like a children's hospital and an yet-to-be-built downtown arena.
It would seem now would be a time to cut back from using the municipal credit card.
The question for you is whether or not you can trust someone who was not able to handle their own personal credit card to handling a more public one that does not even give you the benefit of a points program.
