EPCC Trustee Candidate's Endorsement Woes

Joshua Carter, longtime staffer of State Representative Mary Gonzalez is a candidate for the El Paso Community College Board of Trustees, has some problems with endorsements.

Carter is claiming an endorsement he doesn't have and has been asked to remove the logo of an organization who is actually endorsing his opponent, but he hasn't done so yet.

At issue is several pieces of campaign advertisement in which Carter is using that features the logo of the Ysleta Teachers Association, like this example here:

The problem is that the Ysleta Teachers Association never endorsed Carter and is actually endorsing Carter's opponent.

Despite having been asked to remove the logo and to stop saying he is endorsed by the organization, which is the 5th largest teacher's association in the State of Texas, he has continued to use it as of the time of this posting on his social media.

Although its not really that surprising that Carter would roll the dice and continue to use a logo of an organization that is endorsing his opponent if he's the sort of guy that thinks its a good idea to run for a government position and brag about being endorsed by a Gandara.

Yes, that is real. No, I am not making it up. Someone actually told him it was a good idea. Or he thought it was, which really makes him unqualified.

He is two faced. A homeboy of mine said he talks about his boss to a lot of people. He wanted to leave her to work for a new politician but his boss is going to help him run for a bigger office one day. That guey sounds shady.
