Robledo is one of two local representatives to the state Democratic Executive Committee and is the former Chair of the Paso Del Norte Tejano Democrats.
Here is the text of the letter being sent from the El Paso State Democratic Executive Committeewoman Rebecca Robledo:
It is with great sadness and even greater disappointment that I am writing these words regarding Representatives Naomi Gonzalez and Marissa Marquez. What they have done to the Democratic Party is an embarrassment. Rep. Gonzalez and Rep. Marquez, as so-called Democrats, have allowed themselves to openly endorse a Republican Dee Margo against our very own Democrat Joe Moody under the pretext that Moody was going to run against Marquez which is not true. Instead, after the redistricting took place, Moody moved his family to the district which he is running for now so he wouldn’t run against Rep. Marquez because that’s just the kind of person Joe is.
I was the Chair of the Tejano Paso Del Norte Democrats at the time when Rep. Gonzalez ran and we were the only organization that believed in her enough to endorse her. What a shame!
So we are now faced with the question of what do we do with these two so-called Democrats who have turned their backs on the Democratic Party, not to mention their constituents who believed in them and voted for them? Unfortunately, we cannot remove them from their elected position but I think we should just straight out ban them from any Democratic functions all together. We, as devoted and loyal Democrats will continue to support and endorse our fellow Democrats without these two Representatives.
