Mayor Wins Appeal Over Former Mayor

Local News

Mission Mayor Dr. Armando O’Caña has won his appeal over former Mayor Beto Salinas.

On March 29, the 13th Court of Appeals ruled in favor of O’Caña citing insufficient evidence filed by Beto Salinas to warrant a new election.

You may recall Salinas sued O’Caña after losing a June runoff race claiming O’Caña and his campaign engaged in voter fraud. In October 2018, Salinas won that lawsuit and O’Caña immediately filed the appeal.

The Salinas team does have the option to file an appeal in this latest ruling.
