WESTMORLAND — Four of five seats on the City Council here are up for election Tuesday — three full-term seats and one short-term seat.
Incumbents John Makin and Henry Halcon have filed for re-election while City Councilman Rumaldo Marquez Jr. is not seeking re-election.
The short-term seat belonged to councilman Thomas Marquez, who resigned from the council after two years of his term. Marquez was called to duty by the U.S. Air Force reserves after the terrorist attacks in September. He missed several meetings and decided to resign from the council.
Those seeking election for the full-term seat are Martha Louise Cruz, Thomas "Bud" Landrum, Henry D. Graham, Maria C. Olivas and Makin.
Halcon and Victor M. Sanchez are seeking the short-term seat.
Whichever candidates are elected to the four seats, along with incumbent City Councilmen Larry Ritchie, will have to face the task of fixing problems plaguing the city. The biggest problem is the city's streets.
