Luna Community College’s Board of Trustees Chairman Thomas Jerry Maestas was defeated Tuesday while incumbent Abelino Monotya Jr. won in his race.
But those results were overshadowed by what happened in the other two races.
In District 7, candidates Richard Rivera and Daniel Romero tied, each walking away with 211 votes.
“I’m biting my nails over here,” Rivera said, adding that he’s just waiting to see what happens with the provisional ballots. Candidate JoAnn Alcon-Ortiz came in a distant third in the race with 62 votes.
