NM cities, towns prepare for Election Day

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Tuesday is Election Day in many cities and towns across New Mexico.

In Santa Fe, voters will cast their ballots in the hotly contested mayor’s race.

Former Democratic Party chair Javier Gonzales is facing off with City Councilor Patti Bushee, and Bill Dimas.

Residents will also vote on a number of charter amendments, including one to make the mayor of Santa Fe a full-time employee, with a full-time salary.

The mayor’s job is also on the ballot in Rio Rancho, Corrales and Bernalillo.

In Rio Rancho, former mayors Jim Owen and Michael Williams are fighting for that spot, along with newcomers Morgan Braden and Gregg Hull.
