Even City Attorney Does Not Believe the City's Arena Outreach

Even City Attorney Does Not Believe the 
City's Arena Outreach
Lie #3 Part 1: City Atty Silva Firth Admitted the Arena Does Not Have to be Within 1,000 feet of the Convention Center

KTSM reported on January 24, 2017 quotes Silva Borunda Firth admitting that the arena does not have to be within 1,000 feet of the convention center. 

“It doesn't have to be within the 1,000 foot, necessarily,” said City Attorney Sylvia Borunda Firth. (

So why does the City, in their outreach, continued to use this ploy:

Panel used in City of El Paso's propaganda, which incorrectly describes the 1,000 feet.
Furthermore, doesn't the City read the El Paso Inc.? David Crowder already dispelled this myth which we will discuss in another post and further decipher these "incentives."
