New Mexico: Split vote in Tucumcari recalls

Unofficial results are in for the first recalls of the new year -- Tucumcari City Commissioner Jimmy Sandoval  was ousted 60-50, and Commissioner Dora Salinas-McTigue survived the vote 42-49. Turnout was said to be low.

The recall was over the commissions decision to fire the City Manager, who was then reinstated two weeks later.

Petitioners also sought the recall of Commissioner Ernest Dominguez, but due to timing, that recall would have to be scheduled for March.

Update: Sandoval was replacement (appointed by the council) was Amy Gutierrez, who Sandoval beat by one vote in his election.
