Bicentennial Council was responsible for acquiring federal money from the Dept. of Transportation to purchase El Paso's private bus lines. It resulted in the start of what we know as Sun Metro today. The council consisted of: Don Henderson, Mayor; Dr. J.B. Jones; Richard Najera; E. H. Baeza; and Arlene Quenon. Ms Quenon is the first woman to serve in the City Council. This Council was also the last council to run as a "ticket".
