Tonight City Council Members in Socorro will hear what the public has to say about its recent move to recall two elected officials, including the Mayor.

The council, which is infamous for infighting, has been in turmoil since Mayor Willie Gandara Senior was indicted on federal corruption charges back in September.

Those charges stem from Gandara's time as a trustee for the Socorro Independent School District.

Earlier this month councilman Luis Varela was busted on drug charges after he was caught with cocaine during a sting operation. He's also accused of delivering marijuana.

Last week, council members voted to put a recall of both Gandara and Varela up for a vote.

The meeting became very heated and tonight's meeting isn't expected to be any different.

We'll let you know what happens.
