Frankly, it's a damn shame that the city of El Paso is the only local government that doesn't recognize Veterans Day.
City representative Emma Acosta took a small step towards alleviating that situation during last weeks city Council meeting.
This year Veterans Day falls in the middle of the work week. Thanks to representative Acosta city workers will have the day off. That's a good thing!
Honorable mention for city representative Lily Limon. She raised the issue of making a permanent solution to the city of El Paso not recognizing Veterans Day. She wants to make it a permanent thing for the city of El Paso.
