Here is the mayor of El Paso. His name is John Cook. He came out in support of our Music for Life tour when we were in El Paso, performed, allowed me to interview him for my documentary, and has since contacted us with the desire to finish out the entire tour! Five more dates!!!
He wants to challenge all other Texas mayors to come out in support of abolishing the death penalty, or at least match his level of participation by attending one of the events.
It takes a lot of courage to speak up nowadays, but even more so to be a politician who sticks to his core beliefs and tries to speak out, whether the issue is popular or not.
