Espanola mayor weighs run for lieutenant governor

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

Joseph Maestas is strongly considering a run at the state’s second highest office.

The Española mayor is meeting with the best political consultants in the state and reaching out to key political organizations, labor unions, progressive organizations and top political leaders across New Mexico to discuss the upcoming political season, he said.

“I’m considering running for lieutenant governor because I love my native state – my family goes back more than five generations in northern New Mexico and I want to make a difference,” Maestas said during an interview Wednesday. “I have been successful in representing my city, my area and my state in various capacities. I believe my diverse experience and reputation as a reformer could bring a dynamic and fresh perspective to our state government. My skill set and leadership, I believe, are established and I feel again that those qualities and that experience can truly benefit in moving New Mexico forward during some of the most difficult circumstances ever seen in our state.”
