El Paso- On this first day of the new year, the first year of a four year term begins for two newly elected County Commissioners.
Two very different oaths of office were taken today. Carlos Leon held a ceremony downtown at the County Courthouse and Vince Perez took his oath of office at the Adobe Theater in San Elizario. Perez will represent Precinct 3 which consists of the lower valley and a part of the east side and Leon will represent Precinct 1 on the east side of El Paso County.
Both freshman Commissioners are expected to hit the ground running in 2013.
