It took a runoff to settle the "Special Election" for City Council Representative of District #8, but in the end Cecilia "Cissy" Lizarraga prevailed. On July 15, 2017, Cissy Lizarraga defeated her opponent, Robert Cormell by a 55 to 44% margin and replaced Cortney Niland who resigned amid personal problems. Mrs. Lizarraga, wife of 168th District Court Judge Marcos Lizarraga, will finish out the unexpired term.
The El Paso Municipal Police Officers' Association along with the Coalition of Public Safety Officers (C.O.P.S.) proudly endorsed and supported Cissy Lizarraga in her bid for public office.
Cissy Lizarraga was officially sworn in at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, July 25, 2017 and immediately took office.
