Commissioner David Stout

Commissioner David Stout Welcome to the official page of El Paso County Commissioner David Stout.

David sought the seat of County Commissioner because he believes in the importance of being involved in his community, working for progress, and bringing about change that will enhance our quality of life. The idea of public service and giving back to the community was instilled in him from a very young age. Throughout his formative years, David’s parents made sure their family was always involved in volunteer programs such as "Meals on Wheels" and "Adopt a Highway." It was the volunteer program, "Amigos de las Americas," which took him to Michoacán, Mexico.

The past couple of days have brought much reflection for me and I am sure for most El Pasoans. There are still so many emotions and thoughts to deal with a year out from the largest massacre of Hispanic people in modern history in our country, that happened here, in our home.

I feel like I have been at a loss for how to feel and what to think, which is probably why I am writing this post on the 4th, not the 3rd.

I know we are all so proud of the way this community reacted in the wake of such a terrible attack on its identity. The way so many heroes acted to save lives, putting their own on the line, as the shooting occurred. The work done by first responders, healthcare professionals, mental healthcare professionals, social workers, medical examiners and others who jumped into action to take care of victims and their families that day. The people that stood in line for hours to donate blood. The amount of money raised to help with the financial strains that so many people faced in the aftermath of a such a heinous, racially motivated crime. There were so many other acts of kindness, giving and compassion that they are too many to mention.

In the weeks and months after, a public/private partnership brought about the Family Resiliency Center to help our community cope as we moved into the future. Many people testified in special hearings brought to El Paso by the Texas Legislature with the hopes of bringing meaningful changes to gun policies. A record number of participants joined District Attorney Jaime Esparza in his annual victims of crime walk, and plans for the creation of a special memorial that aims to provide further healing for everyone in this community started taking shape.

Enter COVID-19. Not only was El Paso not done healing, but the isolation and lack of the handshakes, hugs and kisses that define its loving culture, have changed things, making the healing process even more difficult. And that's not all. It makes it hard to heal from a racially motivated attack when this pandemic has highlighted so many flaws in our system that are related to race and the disproportionate negative effects it has on populations like El Paso's, as the leadership in this country and state turn a blind eye to it all. You add that to the continuous attacks on immigrants and people of color including visa limitations, more family separations, changes in the asylum seeking process, Title 42 expulsions, threats to make becoming a citizen more financially prohibitive, leaving undocumented people out of apportionment counts for Congressional districts, reductions in time alloted for correct Census counts, and issues with policing and the way recent protests have been handled, it is really quite incredible how people in El Paso carry on, against all odds, without completely breaking down and giving up.

El Paso's strength really amazes me.

Census Door Knocking Cut A Month Short Amid Pressure To Finish Count

Y'all, this is serious and it means that minorities will be even more severely undercounted. Communities like El Paso, that already have high levels of economically disadvantaged people of color, will be disproportionately affected even more negatively. Not only could we miss out on hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funding, but we stand to have our voices diminished in the Texas Legislature and Congress. Our efforts in getting a full count have already been hindered by the Trump administration's racist attempt to have the citizenship question on the Census questionnaire and the most recent push to exclude undocumented folks from being counted toward apportionment for Congressional districts (both actions were challenged by El Paso County in court), and now we have been stripped of a whole month's worth of efforts that entail the most needed focus for a complete count, which is knocking on the doors of people who are considered hard to count and who may not have been made aware of the Census and its importance because they don't have access to broadband and telephone service.

NPR has confirmed the Census Bureau will end door knocking at unresponsive homes on Sept. 30 amid growing concerns the White House is pressuring the bureau to stop counting soon for political gain.

In remembrance of August 3rd, 2019, the City of El Paso, El Paso County, El Paso United Family Resiliency Center and CCC are coming together for Act of Kindness Day. Overcoming hate and practicing good will toward others, August 3rd is the newly and locally proclaimed Act of Kindness Day.

Along with participating in remembrance events, the community is invited to perform any kind gesture in remembrance of this special day.

One small, kind gesture the Paso Del Norte Complete Count Committee would like to ask the community to do on that day is to take time to fill out the 2020 Census and ask your friends and family to complete it as well.

Ensuring all El Pasoans complete the 2020 Census is another act of kindness for you, your family, and our community.

Attorney General James Sues President Trump for Illegally Seeking to Exclude Undocumented Immigrants from Congressional Apportionment

Breaking: El Paso County, jointly with the State of New York and a number of other states, cities and counties has filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration in response to the executive memorandum issued by the president, barring undocumented immigrants from being counted toward apportionment of representation in Congress.

This racist attempt to deter immigrants and people of color from participating in the 2020 Census and trying to silence the voices of millions of latinos is unconstitutional, as it violates the 14th Amendment's apportionment rules, as well as the Equal Protection Clause.

We must stop the Trump administration from further hindering the progress of our community. El Paso County also sued Trump over putting a citizenship question on the 2020 Census questionnaire, and luckily his efforts were not successful. However, as we argued in that case, damage was done. Trump, though, doesn't seem to feel that it was enough. Not only did he want to keep our majority Hispanic community from receiving its fair share of federal funding for things like roads, schools, healthcare and food, now he wants to further diminish our voice when it comes to our representation in Congress.

I was proud of our County for leading the fight in the first lawsuit and am equally proud that we can do the same to protect what is rightfully and constitutionally ours with the current lawsuit.

El Paso County Commissioner David Stout on why he does not want President Trump to visit his grieving community. https://www.facebook.com/1580126322091980/posts/2044244515680156?s=100029311385175&sfns=mo
Way cool!
Please help...
Hello Mr. Stout! You know I always have something to say....and I know ive mentioned improved signage at Ascarate. I now have an example of EXACTLY what you all could use. I havent made it out to a meeting....but am planning to next month. Hopefully I will make it out and you can meet the guy whos always complaining about Ascarate! lol Only changes is change out the Smallmouth, to a Largemouth bass in the photo...but thats an easy fix. One on each dock...and maybe another one or two around other strategically placed areas for max exposure/eyes on it!
Happy, happy Mother's Day!
Would you all ever consider stocking fathead minnows? They would be a great forage species for Largemouth Bass and catfish as well. Seems like a simple project that is not too expensive either. Just need some wood pallets placed on a shallow flat in the pond....and a stocking of the minnows and that will yield great food to support the ecosystem. https://www.facebook.com/txprolake/photos/a.615045335221502.1073741828.158104460915594/1659409510785074/?type=3&theater
