Interview: Col. Roy Gray, Candidate EP # 1.

A newcomer to the El Paso political scene, Roy Gray is seeking the office of City Representative District # 1. Gray brings over 30 years of service in the military and a expressed "difference" to Susan Austin's record. Upon hearing that Austin would not hold meetings; Gray had an instant dislike of her style.
