Lily Limon Backing Away from Arena

On October 18, 2016, 7 City Council members voted to approve the project site for the new arena.  They also approved the POSSIBLE use of eminent domain to acquire the land.  Reps. James Tolbert, Emma Acosta, Carl Robinson, Michiel Noe, Claudia Ordaz, Lily Limon and Cortney Niland voted in favor of the site.

In the last 24 hours, a recall has been started against Rep Cortney Niland and now Rep. Lily Limon is backing away from her vote.  She told the news that she is worried that people are being forced out.  Um, YOU VOTED TO USE eminent domain – what, exactly, did you think that meant?  Her concern prompted her to post a comment on Facebook:

As far as announcements go, this is a pretty lame way to go about it.  It is a comment on a Facebook post (not even her own Facebook page).  Will she now join forces with Cortney Niland push forward an alternative?  Who knows.  It will be interesting to see if any other City Reps start changing their votes as the threat of a recall is hanging out there.

  1. And Limon apparently wants to blame the City Manager instead of just saying she changed her mind. Of course, it has to be someone else’s fault. Council was surprised by the opposition so everyone who wants to stay in office is walking back his/her vote.

  2. Lilly is just a follower, not a doer or leader. She is the perfect definition of “matter”. Takes up space and has weight. She has done nothing for El Paso and much less her constituents . Can’t wait for a recall or challenger. Adios Lilly.
