SOCORRO - The process of recalling the mayor and city councilman of Socorro is expected to get underway in earnest tomorrow.
A special council meeting is set for 6 p.m. tomorrow night at Socorro City Hall.
Last week, the council said it wanted to put the recall of both elected leaders to a public vote.
This came just days after the arrest of Luis Varela on marijuana and cocaine charges.
Varela remains in jail on a $140,000 bond.
Mayor Willie Gandara was indicted on federal corruption charges earlier this year.
