EL PASO, Texas - The race for the District 4 seat on El Paso City Council is heading for runoff pitting Sam Morgan against Shane Haggerty.
The District 4 seat is currently held by Rep. Carl Robinson, who is termed out.
Candidate Sam Morgan is the owner of El Paso Conceal and Carry. "The average person feels as though they have been regulated to the sideline; that they don't matter in the city of El Paso; that they don't have a representative that has a strong enough presence or voice to command things that we need out here in the Northeast," Morgan said.
Candidate Shane Haggerty is a member of the Ysleta Independent School Board of Trustees. "The No.1 thing talking to community members is our streets. Our streets out here are horrible. The city was given $218 million and a plan to get in there and fix all the streets, and it hasn't been done. I don't think even a quarter of that money has been spent, so our streets are still horrible," Haggerty said.
The runoff election is June 10th.
