Commissioner Leon Announces Re-Election Bid

El Paso County Commissioner for Precinct 1 Carlos Leon announced his reelection bid last night during a gathering of family, friends, and supporters. 

Leon will be seeking his second term to represent the eastside of El Paso and parts of east El Paso County. 

Commissioner Leon spearheaded some reforms at Ascarate Park following the uncovering of alleged financial misdeeds by former county employees.

Leon was also a key vote in the expansion of healthcare through the UMC clinics.

Commissioner Leon also spearheaded training and policy changes among the Constables to get them all on the same page on a variety of issues, which was sorely needed.

Recently Commissioner Leon led a plan to install payment kiosks around the county which will help the County capture more revenue. The plan came about over the refusal of Justices of the Peace to accept payments that go the the court of other JP's. They have the ability to do so, they just don't want to. The kiosks will remove the JP's ego's from the equation and facilitate better flow of collections.

The primary election is next March.
