"While we have successfully got 60.63% of the community over the age of 16 vaccinated with a first dose and 39.77% fully vaccinated, we are still a long way from herd immunity. Our immediate goal is to have 75% of our whole community fully vaccinated, and we will not rest until we reach that goal safely and efficiently."

‘There are bidding wars for homes’: El Paso appraisal district executive describes robust home market despite pandemic

Yesterday City Council passed our measure to explore increasing tax exemptions for 51,000 senior citizens and persons with disabilities who desperately need help during these difficult times. It's been almost 10 years since they have been increased and now more than ever we need to explore these options. Financial models for exemptions will be presented to council during budget discussions and we will continue to advocate to increase exemptions.

"District 3 city Rep. Cassandra Hernandez also proposed directing the city manager to review and make recommendations on expanding exemptions for elderly and disabled residents."
