EL PASO — A former El Paso County Commissioner is now running for city council. Tania Chozet has filed paperwork with the muncipal clerk's office, and is hoping to become a representative for District 7. That seat is currently held by Steve Ortega, but he is running for mayor. Chozet served on Commissioner's Court for a short time last year after Willie Gandara Jr. resigned.
Chozet will face several challengers. Luis Leon, ramon Mendoza, Todd Miller, and Jaime Perez have all filed paperwork to run for the open seat.
