(Calexico City Council)…When they reorganize, they will be faced with a vacancy.

David Romero and Rosie Arreola Fernandez are the newly elected members of the City Council. Their problem is Jesus Eduardo Escobar. Once Escobar is seated as the new County Supervisor for District 1, he will leave his seat as a City Council member for Calexico. Some officials say they will seek applications to fill the vacancy. Joong Kim, a former Calexico City Council member, says the position should be his. Kim was the third top vote getter in the November elections, and he says that qualifies him to fill the seat vacated by Escobar. No official decision has been made on the issue.
