MEET JOE MOLINAR
A CALL TO DUTY
Why am I running for City Representative District 4? My simple reason I’m running for City Representative District 4 is because I care deeply about the City of El Paso and the District 4 constituents.
I do not like seeing the pre- COVID 19 trend of El Paso going into financial ruin. The impacts of COVID 19 have further exacerbated this trend.
Unlike other candidates, once elected into office, I will be a full-time City Representative. I do not own any businesses nor am I aligned with any political parties. I’m prepared to devote my time and energy to the District 4 constituents. Only by working together can we make a positive
difference in Northeast El Paso.
I was born in El Paso, Texas and I have resided in Northeast El Paso the majority of my life. I graduated from El Paso Independent School District schools. A long time ago, we decided to raise our families in Northeast El Paso.
After answering the call to duty to serve my country by completing active duty in the United States Marine Corps, I returned to El Paso. Once again, I answered the call to duty to serve my city and became a police officer. My 22 years with the El Paso Police Department included assignments as a Patrol Sergeant, Homicide Detective and Police Lieutenant, serving the last four years as the Commander for Crimes Against Children.
I next answered the call to duty to serve our schools. Following retirement from the El Paso Police Department, I served six years as a Police Officer and Department Trainer for the Socorro Independent School District.
We believe and care about Northeast El Paso. When anyone asks me where I reside, I proudly state, “Northeast El Paso.” I am asking for your help to allow me to once again answer the call to duty to serve you and our community. I will focus my efforts on fiscal responsibility, public safety, infrastructure and preservation of natural open space.
