Mayor Ravi Bhasker’s Response to the SEC’s Co-op Corner

The City of Socorro would like to respond to items listed in the Socorro Electric Cooperative's (SEC) "Co-op Corner" August 2019 Edition. The City feels the SEC is using fearmongering to coerce Member/Owners to take a one-sided view of how the SEC is managed, sets its priorities and how actions taken by the City might effect members.

IT’S TIME TO STOCK UP ON YOUR SOCORRO CHILE!!!

There is nothing better than fresh New Mexico chile produced in the rich farm lands of the Rio Grande and the Socorro area has many local family farmers who raise more than five varieties of green chile.
