The letter, In effect, orders Martinez to quit the Fiesta Council and his job as presi- dent of the organization which sponsors the centuries old Fiesla de Santa Fe. Martinez said last night he had received the letter, but bad no comment. He said he wanted to "think about" Ihe letter. The action of the council came after two months of biller controversy over Martinez' ad- ministration of the Fiesta Coun- cil.
