Today the County Commissioners Court will vote on posting a notice of intent to issue $100 million in certificates of obligation without voter approval. Once at least 45 days have passed, sometime in January, the Court will vote to issue the debt.

CO debt is supported by property taxation, and El Pasoans are sick to death of taxation without representation!

If the County wants to borrow $100 million, we the taxpayers should have the opportunity to vote on the matter, especially since our children and grandchildren will be burdened with the principal and interest payments for decades to come!

Please write to the Commissioners Court immediately and urge them to vote “NO” on this CO and all COs.;;;;
