Trini usted to run the city before but when he lost the election the current council gave him a cushy 32000.00 dollar job. But he wanted the power again and this council backed him for mayor wanting a puppet Well little jesse runs the show now. Anyone who goes againt this council gets slammed just look at what they tried to do to reyes, Turns out that she was smarter than they were. She saw right through the lame attempt to remove her. Now that trini is not doing what jesse wanted, they were going to use the same tactic to remove him. But he stepped down. Now they have 120 days to have another election which they should have done this year but they knew that they would be thrown out. So whats in the future. Gomez looks like he has had it with the city I don't think that he will run, I asked Duran and he said that he would not run. That leaves ruiz who will run for any office just to get out of the call center job he has. Now that an election has to happen lets see if this council will be put on the ballot.Jesse and madrid are up for election. The election has to be called by nov 2 by law, lets see how they try to skirt this issue.

What? He's nothing but an "ankle biter" just like Obama "a cummunity organicer". That's all he will amount to, about that Ruiz he thinks he's the only one in Socorro with a degree. Give me brake!

Just because you barely finished HS doesnt mean others cant go to college and graduate. Pssh I told my kids to go to college and I think only a pendejo like you would try to make it a negative that Ruiz went to college. Considering Socorro was listed as the "dumbest" city in Texas bc we have very few people with degrees, you shouldnt be bashing people who actually have degrees.Even if he has a degree I'll still support Duran. Duran 4 Mayor!

Remember U Remember
Law enforcement officers who are not doing anything illegal out in public shouldn't have anything to be afraid of if they are being filmed. You all say that Gandara is not above the law, and he is not, but neither should the Sheriff's deputy think that he can use force to stop someone from filming when it is perfectly legal to do so. I think that the trend in filming law enforcement is good - it probably helps to keep some officers honest and it has in the past caught law enforcement officers culpable of wrongdoing. Moreover, filming also helps to catch a lot of offenders such as DWI offenders in the act. so that juries don't have to rely solely on testimony of police officers, who might not exactly be unbiased. Obviously there is a lot of contempt for Gandara which is clouding this issue, but just because he might have done wrong in his official conduct doesn't give a Sheriff's Deputy the right to use force to interfere with a legal activity.
Remember this,“ Law enforcement officials who are not doing anything illegal out in public shouldn’t have anything to be afraid of if they are being filmed.” Questions: Why did Jessie, Madrid, Glory and Mary get an attorney with taxpayer’s money? Are they afraid of being charged with wrong doing? Why the special meeting on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 at 5:30 instead of 6:30 p.m.? Why pay with taxpayer’s money for attorneys fees to defend Gutierrez and Mapula who allegedly stole from the City of Socorro? Why go after Mayor Trini Lopez and not after Gutierrez and Mapula?
There is a "small" think called PROOF. Just because someone accuses someone of doing wrong doesn't mean it is true. You yourself used the work "allegedly" because you don't know if it is true or not.

Republicans (Hitlers devotees) try to act as though they never used food stamps, college loans, or any "social programs" in the U.S.A., but I know differently. 97 percent of Republicans have used U.S. social programs at some point in their miserable lives, they just never admit to it. So I guess you all are the freeloaders? And the con-men? Bourgeois elite scam artists?

BTW President Obama is a masterful President, and I' so thankful that he embarrassed Bush and Romney in their lackluster efforts to become President. Republicans never win anything anymore, except the award for WHINERS OF THE CENTURY.
