Word around the El Paso Hispanic Chamber of Commerce's mercado last night was that current El Paso Community College Trustee Nico Dominguez is considering running for the District 7 seat. The seat is currently held by City Rep Steve Ortega who is termed-out and is making a bid for Mayor of El Paso.
Obviously this is still unconfirmed but my source indicates that Dominguez is already trying to line up someone to replace him on the board of trustees.
Dominguez is a long-shot at best and I'm sure my buddy David K is going to have a field day with that race. Dominguez, a long-time friend and political ally of the Gandara family, most recently went to the sentencing of Willie Gandara, Jr to speak on behalf of Gandara.
Gandara was being sentenced for drug trafficking. That's gonna look really great on a mailer.
God I love El Paso politics!
