CERVANTES TAPPED FOR DIST. 52

At its special meeting Friday, Feb. 9, 2001, the Doña Ana County Board of Commissioners selected Las Cruces attorney Joseph Cervantes to fill the term vacated by the sudden death of State Rep. Delores Wright (D- Dist 52).

Cervantes will resign his seat as the District 3 County
Commissioner prior to being sworn in as a state legislator in Santa Fe next week.

The Commission vote was 3-0, with Cervantes abstaining. Commissioner Carlos Garza was out of town and unable to attend.
Gov. Gary Johnson will now appoint a replacement for Cervantes on the Board of County Commissioners.
