Simmons simply seeks to serve

Homebuilder Ron Simmons isn’t running for Congress because he needs the job or a second career. The Independent candidate says he simply wants to make things better for the people of New Mexico.

Simmons filed his District 3 candidacy June 4 and informed the Monitor editorial board Thursday that he’s been notified his name will appear on November’s ballot.

“I have chosen to run as an Independent with the hope of crossing party lines to work as an individual with all sectors of District 3,” Simmons said. “I have a lifetime of concern and connection with all of the issues going on today ... This is my stepping out for my beliefs ... My background gives me the basis for the office.”

The 62-year-old lives in Santa Fe. His background includes small business owner, employer, insurer and teacher, which he said gives him “the ability to do the research in Congress to get the work done.”

His current priority is to make appointments and get out around the district to listen to concerns.

“I’m offering to serve and I’m applying for the job,” he said.
