In a news conference set overlooking the city he wishes to run, El Pasoan Dee Margo kicked off his campaign for mayor Wednesday afternoon.
“I believe I speak the language of experience and know the people of El Paso are the greatest asset. I’m committed to lead El Paso.” Margo tweeted out shortly after his announcement.
Margo joins a fairly large and diverse group of candidates running for mayor this year. Current City Rep Emma Acosta, as well as member of the El Paso Historical Commission Charlie Stapler have both officially filed the required paperwork to run for the city’s top spot.
Other residents who have stated their intent to run for mayor are Jorge Artelejo, David Rodriguez, David Saucedo, Jameel Toombs, and Ana Romero Zaidle. Early voting starts April 24th, with Election Day set for May 6th.
