Vindication in Socorro?

Former Cit Rep Maria Reyes regained her seat on Socorro City Council following Saturday's election. 

Reyes won a special election that was set to replace Sergio Cox who resigned over the fall out of a street paving scandal in which Cox had a street paved that was a dead end road and has almost no traffic but did have a property that Cox had a financial interest in.

Cox had defeated Reyes a couple of years ago and now she will replace him on council to fulfill the remainder of his unexpired term.

Her rejoining council will be a potential powder keg at least for a couple of months because City Rep Gloria Rodriguez and Reyes very famously have bad blood. 

Rodriguez is termed out but is currently running for Mayor against incumbent Jesus Ruiz.

That election is in November of this year.
