Solorio blames late paperwork, encourages voters to choose Barajas for Seat 5

On Nov. 8, Ivanhoe residents will cast their votes to choose who will fill Seat 5 on the Ivanhoe Public Utility District’s board of directors – but one of the candidates says he didn’t mean to be on the ballot. Ruben T. Solorio, who is halfway through a four-year term on the board’s Seat 2, is listed as running against Seat 5 incumbent Gilbert Barajas. If Barajas was unchallenged, he would have been re-appointed to the board automatically.
