City of El Paso Named 2018 All-America City; Third Time City Takes National Honor

Sunday evening, the City of El Paso was named a 2018 All-America City at the 69th annual All-America City awards ceremony in Denver.

“I have always known El Paso is a City of Champions,” said Mayor Dee Margo. “Being named a 2018 AllAmerica City just reinforces our place among the great cities of our nation.”

The City of El Paso had previously won the prestigious award in 1969 and 2010.

“The El Paso delegation worked hard for this award,” said City Manager Tommy Gonzalez. “They represent the best El Paso has to offer and prove what a wonderful place El Paso is to live.”

The City of El Paso won by outlining three community projects that address the community’s most pressing challenges and improving the quality of life of its residents.

1. Empowering El Pasoans for Services and Leadership

2. Career and Adult Educational Opportunities

3. El Paso Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) Program.

The National Civic League recognizes ten communities each year for outstanding civic accomplishments.

To win, each community must demonstrate innovation, inclusiveness, civic engagement, and cross sector collaboration by describing successful efforts to address pressing local challenges.

  1. “To win, each community must demonstrate innovation, inclusiveness, civic engagement, and cross sector collaboration by describing successful efforts to address pressing local challenges.” Innovation? What innovation? Civic engagement? Telling people they can’t speak at city council meetings, ignoring their views? Cross sector collaboration, ah yes, between the rich and the city council. Addressing pressing local challenges? Like getting the citizens to stop complaining about high property taxes?
