And no, I am not talking about our Russian friends.
I am talking about the newest ginger in Rick Francis's life...City Representative candidate for District 8...Greg Baine.
Apparently the Money guys in El Paso are none too impressed with Cissy and do not want to take the risk of having Rich Wright as city representative.
Speaking of Rich...is he running?
But back to the Red Menace.
So they are running Greg Baine.
Apparently he wants to do something about El Paso's crumbling roads which is a bit rich when you think about all the money the Money guys gave to Escobar and Co. I guess we are finally acknowledging that Escobar and Co. never took care of the basics at the city and county.
That and of all people you have a candidate from the West Side bitching about the roads. I guess West Siders are finally feeling charitable want street improvements in other parts of the City.
"But Max, the district all includes downtown and it has shitty streets!"
Correction. It has character.
Cissy should pull it off, but I cannot imagine the Money guys wanting to throw away money to prove a point, that's something Escobar would do. So obviously they think they have a shot here.
