I've been saying this for years but people scoffed and mocked. Now that the Attorney General has ruled, I feel truly vindicated. The day of reckoning is coming and it can't get here too soon for me.

Yeah it is funny, Now they can all be fired and a new council formed. It will be good news for those In San Elizario fighting the Socorro scumbags.

Now that idiot Trini will soak up the attention and they will say that he was right. That bastard was illegally in office from May until October and only quit to look good. He thought Jesse and him would be bffs and look what happened. Its sad to see people buying his bullshit and forgettin that all of council supported Trini and he supported movin the election too. Its amazing how defiant city council is, none of those fools has a college degree and the dare say that the attorney general is wrong. Haha they never learn.

Sep 21, 2012 ... Conservative Blogging from Travis County, Texas ... This charter amendment would move the city council elections to November permanently.... Essentially, this changes the terms of the council and mayor and moves their ... a term of three (3) years beginning on a date established by council by ordinance ...

This is what is required by Texas State Law and that was the law the Texas Attorney General ruled the Socorro City Council failed to follow, thereby violating Texas State laws.

If they would quit all the damned infighting and corruption Socorro City council would have been able to make the changes they wanted and only if the voters of Socorro had agreed. Since the city council failed to let the voters make the decisions the acts they have done are illegal.

Socorro and its council are and always looking for new ways to get money, at any cost. Swallowing up Horizon and San Eli would have been a nice tax windfall for them, but their exploits were thwarted with the State Councils' ruling. Back to the Drawing board, Socorro. Maybe you can start charging entrance fees to your City Councils three ring circus meetings.

That's a good question. Guess we'll have to wait and see. Remember, Socorro is challenging the states ruling, so as usual, they haven't done anything wrong.....again.

All towns along the southren border are infested with rats, coachroaches and vermin come on. Does the Unitrd States have problems with border towns or cities along the northren borders? What does that lead you to believe?

GO back to Washington DC and stay there We do not need any rabble-rousers here. The Socorro Government has been declared non-existent since the people on the council were not elected when their terms ended. All actions by the council can be forfeit by their votes since the terms expired Four months ago. All their actions now are illegal according to the State Attorney General's office.

Their terms expired 8 months ago. The elections should have been held in May of last year and the swearing in, on or about the first of June. They thought they J.G. Jr. and Willie Madrid could pull a fast one. Technically they're out of a job effect today, appeal or no appeal. They have no business at City Hall or talking to a lawyer (Jerry Wallace)or any of the other 11 lawyers that they have on the payroll.
soooooo

So are we looking at all of them being removed or just Jesse and Madrid? The Mayoral election would be invalid since Jesse and Madrid votes wouldnt count and only Gloria voted yes since Reyes wasnt there that day. There would be no quorum that day. What about all the contracts signed, people hired and all that shit? God what a mess these jackasses made. And they still say theyre right!

Jesse and Madrid will be out and the others have to run on the old time table. The council members still eligible to do business have to have a charter amendment formulated and voted on by the voters. All actions taken are null and void unless all the actions taken were 100 percent for.

So basically we are stuck wit these 3 until November. Speaking of doin business, how can they if they dont form a quorum? I might be wrong but charter states that you need 3 voting members for that, we would only have 2 since Gloria is the pro tem now.
