    This lady makes in one year to do nothing what I’ll make in three years busting my neck. Our city government hates us.

    Who knows? The City Shadow knows. Shang apparently got CC to spend almost $5MM on trolley prep but failed to get a binding commitment from TxDot for the remainder, a situation only remedied this month. That is not confidence-inspiring performance. Then she publicly stated that there would only be one renovated trolley with the rest being new ones, again contradicting the stated will of the previous CC. Finally, she contradicted JW’s official lie/line that the downtown signage was not related to the total cost of the stadium.

    For someone at that level, you don’t keep getting second chances. That is how Peppers sees it but I’m open to other evidence.

    No question Shang’s “deal” with the City of El Paso is sweet for her & bad for taxpayers. However it can be a large leap from sweet deal to corruption. If the sweet deal prevents her from successfully litigating against the City, then it might even be beneficial long term to the tax payers of El Aso. Of course it would be nice to not be in this position to begin with. Elect better people to City Council and we can take a big step toward preventing these scenarios. I would agree there is too much secrecy, but not everything that happens that we don’t like can be elevated to “corruption”.

    ken, if not corrupt then unethical for sure. wilson did this knowing it was her last day that she had the power to give shang a sweet deal at the taxpayers expense. now wilson is getting another job at the job core at the taxpayers expense, but should she ? it doesnt surprise me that lilly said she knew about the deal and that she didnt like shang. could be about the tree cutting deal, maybe not, but up to this point only lilly said that she knew about the deal during executive session. could wilson have only told her only ? limon, holguin, and robinson said they never heard of the deal. acosta is being quiet due to her deal with the city. noe, niland have said nada. even romero said he didnt know about it and was pissed when he found out. i think this is wilson giving her best bud a golden parachute before lilly screwed it up. the others dont like it and you cant blame them for screaming ,but they all know there is nothing they can do about it. hopefully, you would think the job corp would reconsider wilson for the job and demoine iowa would forget about shang due to this underhanded deal. wilson may have figured she had already pulled off the ballpark and destruction of city hall without answering to nobody. she probably figured why not and help my friend who gonzalez may get rid of anyway. screw the taxpayer. it may not be ethical, but its legal.
