Socorro Mayor: "I Won't Resign"
SOCORRO - The mayor of Socorro refuses to quit.
Tonight's Socorro City Council agenda suggests he might.
Willie Gandara Sr. is under indictment in the ongoing federal public corruption investigation.
He says four councilmembers should resign.
That issue is also on tonight's council agenda.
Socorro has been beset by leadership problems which include raucous city council meetings.
Excerpts of explosive council meetings have been placed on YouTube for all to see.
Voters ushered in the current council and mayor in hopes that cooler heads would prevail and that the city's business would be done.
