Lidia Valadez, the girlfriend, said yes.
No date has been set as of yet but if it's anytime soon she will become the First Lady of the county's second-largest municipality.
Looks like the attention-starved Jessie Gandara, who can no longer vote but really wants attention on his not-so-anonymous Facebook account, is going to be even more upset now. Looks like Socorro's answer to John Boehner is going to have to find something else to insult the mayor about.
Gandara, who keeps showing up like a bad case of hemorrhoids, has been insulting the mayor and others who ousted him from power in Socorro on his little Facebook page for months, calling him "Tutti-Fruitti" for quite some time now.
Looks like Mayor Ruiz has the last laugh.
