The City of Socorro may have to wait four months to recall Mayor Willie Gandara Senior. Gandara's indictment on corruption charges prompted the push for the recall election. A spokesman for the city says they still need to finish a contract with the El Paso County Elections Department for the vote.
Come May, Socorro City Council will also vote on who will take over former Councilman Luis Varela's seat. He resigned after getting arrested during a drug sting.
