How El Paso Works: City Council with Rep. Chris Canales

March 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


When Joseph Magoffin helped write the articles of Incorporation for El Paso, he helped shape the modern city. In this series, we will compare Joseph’s vision for El Paso to what is has become in the last 150 years.

This session, we will discuss the duties of City Council with Representative Chris Caneles and compare it to duties Joseph would have had as a city alderman in early El Paso.

A question-and-answer portion of this event will be intended to help us understand what we should expect of our representatives.

This series is meant to help us all become more aware of and confident in using city services available to us all and to celebrate 150 years of being an incorporated city in Texas.

To register, call 915-533-5147, ext. 1002 or email Magoffin-Home@thc.texas.gov.
