Rep. Berry Resigns

Five days before a scheduled special session of the state Legislature, state Rep. R.J. Berry, R-Albuquerque, who won last week's mayoral election in Albuquerque, has resigned to concentrate on the City Hall transition, Peter St. Cyr reports.

As Peter points out, the Bernalillo County Commission is responsible for choosing some to fill out Berry's term, but it's questionable whether they can get a replacement by Saturday when the session starts.
