"I'm a taxpayer, I'm a homeowner. My children were educated in District 7. I retired from the Ysleta Independent School District after 29 years of service. So I have a wide variety of experience that is exactly what District 7 requires," Lily Limon, Candidate for District 7 said.
"I also want to see that we get all the moneys that's coming to us from the Quality of Life Bond. Plus, I'm very, very interested in making sure our parks are crime and drug free," Jim Tolbert, Candidate for District 2 said.
"My business background is going to definitely be a plus when it comes to the City and the problems.e Economic development and jobs is my first focus. Second one is the financial stability of the City," Larry Romero, Candidate for District 2 told us.
"In the four years I've been in office. There have been at least 40 new businesses that have started in the Northeast. Actually, we stopped counting at 75. I said 40 but there are actually more than that," Carl Robinson, Candidate for District 4 explained.
"Over 5 billion dollars have been infused in the El Paso community within the last five years, because the Brack realignment and closure. But the Northeast, if you take a look around, it's lacking that growth and that development. So we want to focus our efforts on economic development," Samuel Morgan, a Candidate for District 4 said.
