City Rep. Eddie Holguin Discusses Why He Will Vote Against the Downtown Stadium Proposal [Audio]
Tomorrow, the El Paso city council will vote on a proposal to approve a $50 million dollar commitment to building a new downtown baseball park.
Earlier, Steve Kaplowitz analyzed how he thinks the voting will go. District 6 representative Eddie Holguin is one of the two city reps. expected to vote against the proposal. (the other is Carl Robinson)
Eddie is not necessarily against the building of a new ballpark, he just has a lot of questions when it comes to demolishing and rebuilding city hall. Principally, Holguin wants to know how much it will cost to build a new city hall, and how it will get paid for.
Holguin also thinks something as important as allocating funds to build a ballpark and rebuild a city hall should be put to a public vote.
According to Holguin:
Absolutely, I believe the people who have to pay for it should have a say in it.
