SOCORRO, TX - People in Socorro have moved one step closer to completely overhauling their city government.
This time, it's Councilman At-Large Guillermo Madrid Jr. that could be on the chopping block come May.
Six hundred signatures were turned in to city hall requesting Madrid's name be added to the May recall election.
The list already includes Mayor Willie Gandara and Councilman Luis Varela.
Gandara Sr. is under indictment on federal corruption charges and Varela was arrested on drug charges late last year.
Monday's development was another example of the council's troubles.
