Now that the dust has settled after this week’s runoff election, Rio Rancho’s new mayor and city councilor are ready to roll up their sleeves and get down to the daily grind.
Issues they campaigned on include economic development and improving city infrastructure. Looming directly ahead will be discussions on the city budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1.
Rio Rancho’s Mayor-elect Gregg Hull started his term at a run, holding meetings with the city manager and department heads the day after the runoff, in which he beat rival Mike Williams in a landslide result. Gregg netted 65 percent of the votes to 35 percent for Williams.
