Socorro, TX - Socorro City Council has voted unanimously to adopt an ordinance calling for a special election that could recall two politicians. Mayor Wille Gandara Sr. and Councilman Luis Varela could lose their jobs if voters recall them. A special election could be held as soon as January 15.
Gandara was indicted earlier this year on federal corruption charges. Varela was just released from jail after being arrested on drug charges.
