EL PASO - Another candidate has his eye on the County Commissioners Court.
Vince Perez, the former communications chief for Congressman Silvestre Reyes said it's time for a change.
"That's why I've decided to challenge Commissioner Gandara, because I believe the people deserve a more effective representative, a stronger representative and someone who would be committed to the job full-time. I don't believe Commissioner Gandara is committed to this and I believe he's been a part-time representative and his voting record clearly shows that," said Perez.
Perez said Gandara was absent from Metropolitan Planning Organization meetings so many times that he lost his right to vote. He said that isn't fair to the people in precinct three.
