Dear Media and Friends,
I am pleased to announce that Aaron Montes, who announced yesterday that he left the El Paso Times, is planning to run for City Representative of District 7. After a distinguished career in journalism for all three local newspapers, Aaron is ready to lead his district in an effort to make his City a better place. I cannot think of anyone more qualified for the position!
His opponent will be incumbent Henry Rivera, who made the front page of the El Paso Times yesterday for his expletives directed against a citizen during public comment. I will have a lot more to say about him and his record in the coming days and weeks.
Aaron will make his official announcement on his Facebook page on Monday at 1:00pm.
I am making this announcement with his permission.
