City Manager Gonzalez honored with leadership award by US/Mexico Chamber of Commerce

City Manager Tommy Gonzalez received the Border City Leadership Award from the United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber’s Binational Board of Directors selected Gonzalez for the dynamic economic development that El Paso has experienced in recent years, which has improved job growth and wage increases, while at the same time maintaining healthy public finances.

Furthermore, the board recognized the City’s ongoing partnerships with Mexican public and private sector entities that make the El Paso-Juarez region a top trade location in North America.

“This award underscores how the City El Paso is successfully tackling the border community’s unique challenges in order to deliver notable services and projects to our region,” said Mayor Dee Margo.

“The City of El Paso, along with its sister city Ciudad Juárez, has cultivated a group of remarkable leaders like City Manager Tommy Gonzalez that are making the border region resilient and able to overcome a multitude of challenges like unfunded state and federal mandates,” said Albert C. Zapanta, President and Chief Executive Officer for the United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce.

The City of El Paso has obtained $64 million in savings and efficiencies over the last several years and established $69 million in new revenue sources—to include $32 million in state funding for International Bridges Intelligent Transportation projects.

Furthermore, the City has experienced more than $1.07 billion in new capital investments added over the last several years; created and retained more than 11,500 jobs; ranking second nationwide in top employment; maintained a AA bond rating; increased the fund balanced for the last four fiscal years; and reported zero findings in its annual financial audit for the third year in a row.

The United States-Mexico Chamber of Commerce is the leading binational business organization working to build mutually beneficial trade and investment relationships in the Americas.

The organization’s mission is to promote business between the United States and Mexico. For more information about the chamber, click here.

Mayor Leeser, City Manager Gonzalez release statements about Monday’s special meeting

Both Mayor Oscar Leeser and City Manager Tommy Gonzalez have released statements regarding a special City Council meeting scheduled for Monday, December 14th.  The specific item will be taken up during Executive Session.

Statement from City Manager Tommy Gonzalez:

 “I don’t know what the council will be discussing on Monday. However, as I have stated, I welcome an investigation. The investigation will demonstrate that I have done nothing wrong. I want the investigation to put everything out in the open. 

I followed city procedures, yet all of the facts have been taken out of context and misrepresented. I would hope the Mayor and Council would allow for the investigation to take place which will demonstrate that all procedures and existing policies were followed. However, if they choose to take action without a third-party investigation, they will be doing so without all the facts they would have to have to make a valid determination.”

Statement from Mayor Oscar Lesser:

“During the executive session discussion regarding hiring an investigator, questions related to personnel matters were raised and we were unable to discuss them because the agenda had not been posted for personnel issues. In order to allow council to discuss concerns related to personnel matters and to receive legal advice concerning our options, Rep. Niland and I asked for the item to be posted on Monday’s agenda.”
