Resendiz Fires Two Major City Employees

After firing two major city employees last week, Enrique Palomares (city attorney) and Gordon Cook (economic development director), Sunland Park Mayor Martin Resendiz will meet this evening at 7 pm with the city council to consider, among other things, replacements. In a story by Diana Alba of the Las Cruces Sun News this morning Palomares is quoted as saying given me "I was given assurances by the new mayor and his party," presumably that his job was secure.

"Given the governor's severely weakened status in January, however, it seems unlikely the Senate will hand power to the faction of Democrats most closely associated with him."

I think you over estimate the Governors "weakened status". And further, I see no connection with his status, be it weakened or otherwise, with how the Democrats will vote on the issues of leadership. We will soon see.
