SOCORRO, TX (KDBC) — "Null and void."
Visiting judge Stephen Ables made a final decision in the annexation plans for San Elizario in Socorro Thursday. He announced the City of Socorro must start again in their efforts for their annexation plans because two of the Socorro city council members, Willie Madrid Jr. and Jesse Gandara Jr. were not legally in office when the plans were approved.
The plans were brought to a halt in February when the county filed a lawsuit against Socorro.
Meanwhile, many residents of San Elizario are are looking to incorporate and create their own town.
