Former City Representative Stan Roberts dies

Former El Paso City Representative and longtime civic activist Alfred “Stan” Roberts died Friday morning, according to his family. He was 87-years-old.

After serving the maximum four consecutive terms on council, Roberts ran for mayor unsuccessfully in 1999 against Carlos Ramirez, Barbara Perez and Leeland White.

On his last day on council, Roberts said, “I’m proud of the service I gave the city for 17 years as an anklebiter with no money at all, and then over the last eight years on city council… which was almost no money at all!”.

Former Mayor John Cook succeeded Roberts as Northeast City Representative in 1999. Cook told ABC-7 about Roberts, “He was a good man. Stan worked very hard for his district. He had a large group of volunteers that got things done for people. He and his wife Jetta were very dedicated to helping their community.”

Funeral arrangements for the 87-year-old are pending.
