Lyda Ness-Garcia is a candidate for El Paso City Council District 1. She is a lawyer and a business women who seems to have a problem with the IRS and owes over $190,000 in back taxes. Some reports say she owes up to $207,000, but whose really counting? She sure isn't.
The local media has mentioned her "alleged" problems with the IRS but has not called her out on it. I guess tax liens still classify her problems as allegations only. Instead she has a reporter by the name of Maria Garcia who finds any way she can to divert the attention of this very serious issue away from her and instead to some questionable acts by her opponent. I agree with the reporter putting her opponent on the spot for her "alleged" actions but I don't think it's fair that she gives Ness-Garcia a pass on her up to $207,000 of back taxes. How can this women represent her district and have a say in the city's budget when she can't even mange her own business? Maybe these pictures might shed some light on why she can't keep up with
Lyda Ness-Garcia is still fairly young. She is about 40 years old and has pretty much lived a privileged life. Her mother, who is a doctor who for BP in Houston, (yes British Petroleum, as in the people who spilled all that oil in the gulf. So much for being such a conservationist) has given Lyda everything she has ever wanted growing up but never lessons in how to treat people. Many people can attest to that. I think her mother should have put an end to that once she graduated college and started her own business. But who am I to tell anyone how to raise their 40 year old child?This 40 something year old is still a momma's girl who loves to go out and have fun but she doesn't let motherhood get in the way. Her fun and friends come first.
These pictures clearly show that Lyda Ness-Garcia is still trying to find herself. She has two kids, from two different fathers and is single. She hasn't found the right one so she is out having fun finding that person. She is hanging out with friends letting it all hang out, Mardi Gras is always fun with her friends, just doing what 40 years olds do. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Is there? Oh wait, she is 40 not 21.You would think that a City Representative candidate would already know where she was in her life and would think that a City Representative candidate would be focused on serving her constituents and not worried about who was going to be serving her next drink.
Is this the kind of person we want on City Council? Will she be able
to put the bottle down and concentrate on her job if elected? Will the people in these pictures be a part of her staff? Will she be able to pay off her back taxes and "learn her lesson" before she takes the oath of office? Will she be willing to write a check for $207,000 dollars to be elected for a position that pays nowhere near that? Who knows? She is the lady, I use that loosely considering she is drinking straight from the bottle, who has Danny Rollings doing her dirty work. We'll just have to wait and see to find out what Lyda Ness-Garcia is willing to do to pull this rabbit out of the hat.
I just though this video was fitting in so many ways.
