Former Texas House Rep. Joe Pickett is suing the City of El Paso because it levies illegal taxes on our water bills. Unless the City settles the case and makes the taxpayers whole, Pickett will go to trial on April 5 in full public view.
We asked Pickett why he is suing the City, why taxation is so high in El Paso, and who is benefitting from high taxes and fees.
Enjoy our video interview below.
