With Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales’ surprise announcement this month that he will not seek a second term, the March 2018 election to lead the capitol city is underway.
Five candidates had already announced within days of Gonzales’ announcement. According to the Santa Fe New Mexican:
[School Board Member Kate] Noble joins three city councilors — Peter Ives, Joseph Maestas and Ron Trujillo — and school crossing guard Harvey Van Sickle, who is on the board of the nonprofit group Keep Santa Fe Beautiful, in the race for mayor, which could get more crowded.
Today, former Fast Company magazine CEO and 2014 gubernatorial candidate Alan Webber became number six.
He announced on Richard Eeds Santa Fe radio show. Listen below.
