This Week's Events

  • Moreno wins council seat
    Masonry contractor Rick Moreno captured 76 percent of the votes cast to easily win a four-person special election Saturday for a seat on the Lamesa City Council.
    Moreno will fill the District 3 council seat previously held by Fabian Rubio, who vacated the position after an unsuccessful attempt this past spring to win election in city council District 2.
    Moreno captured 76 of the 100 votes cast during both early voting and in polling on Saturday at City Hall, according to unofficial results provided by city officials.
    Joey Rivas, an official write-in candidate, finished a distant second in the polling with 14 votes.  
    Cindy Sweet captured seven votes and Jaime Garcia received three.
