GALENA PARK – At a special called Council Meeting last Monday, the City Commission or Council acted to fill the empty seat of Council Position #2, Fire and Police Commissioner.

This had been vacated on July 21 when Councilwoman Lois Killough resigned, blaming the Mayor for creating a circus atmosphere at council meetings, and refusing to run a legal council meeting as prescribed by law and training.

At Monday’s special meeting, each council person and the mayor nominated a candidate. Moya nominated Taggy Hall, Maricela Serna nominated Carol Thompson, and Danny Simms and Juan Flores nominated Cruz Hinojosa. Then a vote was called. Only the commissioners voted, and Hinojosa received all three votes. Therefore he will assume the open council seat until the next election, in May 2016.

Cruz Hinojosa was one of four candidates for Mayor in the election of May 2014. He said at the Candidates Forum that he had worked in city government for 23 years, in the water department of the City of Houston. He also was a Houston Police supervisor.
