Montoya targets the undecided voters

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

Santa Fe County Commissioner Harry Montoya said he estimates half the voters are still undecided about the crowded Democratic primary for the District Three Congressional seat that Tom Udall will give up at the end of this year.

“I don’t have a million dollars or a coat tail to ride,” he said, a reference to Santa Fe millionaire Don Wiviott and Public Regulatory Commission Chair Ben Ray Lujan, whose father Ben Lujan is the Speaker of the House in the state legislature.

Lujan and Wiviott received the most votes during the Democratic pre-nominating convention in March.

What he does have to offer is 14 years of experience as an elected official, eight years as a Pojoaque Valley School board member (1994-2002) and six years on the Santa Fe County Commission, including a term as chair.

The first issue he mentioned during a recent editorial visit to the Monitor was veterans services – the lack of access, the need to improve services for veterans of the Iraq war who will be returning home and the need to decentralize those services by bringing them closer to the citizens.

He gave, as a reference, his work on the commission to open a satellite office for county business in Pojoaque, saving many long trips and delays to conduct business in downtown Santa Fe.
