The leadership of the El Paso Chamber of Commerce is upset that there is an action item on the City Council agenda for January 3 calling for abandoning the project to construct an arena in Duranguito and reallocating the remaining QOL bond funds for existing city facilities.

Their CEO Ann Hutchins published a guest column in both The El Paso Times and El Paso Matters dismissing the “loud voices” opposing the arena project.

I just published an essay in response to both the El Paso Times and El Paso Matters.

I wish to thank Bob Moore and Trish Long for allowing me to share my views on their pages.
