Santa Fe City Elections Could Get Hot

Albuquerque's municipal elections always seem to overshadow the following Spring elections in Santa Fe. Santa Fe has not only four Council seats up for election but the Mayor's office as well.

The Mayor's race could be interesting. Santa Fe realtor Karen Walker jumped into race early but most expect her to do poorly having never ran for office before. Current City Councilor David Coss has also entered the race for Mayor and is seen as the liberal or progressive alternative to current Mayor Larry Delgado.

The big question is whether Delgado will run again for a 3rd term. If he does, he's the odds-on favorite, as he brings not only the Hispanic vote to the table but the development community as well (kind of like a Santa Fe version of Marty Chavez).

But there are rumors that a candidate that would represent the Hispanic community and be sympathetic to the development community waits in the wings should Delgado decide not to run. Could it be former County Commissioner Javier Gonzales?

Progressives seem to be organized in Santa Fe are are attempting to consolidate behind Mayoral and City Council candidates and trying to prevent multiple progressive candidates from entering the race and diluting the pogressive vote. But, not surprisingly, the pro-development community is organized as well. In the aftermath of recent, controversial Wal-Mart votes, the battle between progressives and developers continues.

Councilor Rebecca Wurzburger in District 2 should expect strong challenge from a progressive, eastside candidate. The race for David Coss' open seat could be interesting as well in District 3.

Marilyn Bane is the strong progressive already in the race to take on Rebecca in District 2. She's been a great advocate for neighborhoods and she has a business background -- the perfect combo for East Siders.
