Adam Powell of the El Paso Times made a stunning statement today in his report on the amphitheater that will be built at the Cohen site with private funds:

“Though city officials have insisted that the new amphitheater project is separate from the voter-approved multipurpose cultural and performing arts center, it’s likely that with the promise of a privately constructed venue the City Council will move away from the MPC plan.”

Yes, let’s put the MPC out of its misery and save $180,000,000!

Let the developers build their own stuff without demanding corporate welfare from the taxpayers of El Paso!
