SOCORRO, TX — Socorro's mayor Trini Lopez resigned Sunday.
According to a city spokesperson, Lopez sent two emails to Socorro Mayor Pro Tem Mary Garcia stating at one point he should not continue in office.
The resignation by Mayor Lopez is effective immediately.
It comes just before a special city council meeting this week to look deeper into the mayor's purchase of city property.
Mayor Pro Tem Garcia has called out Mayor Lopez for what she calls inappropriate businesses practices.
