His face is plastered on campaign signs all over town, yet Bill Dimas’ refusal to participate in live public forums has made him perhaps the least visible of the three candidates running for mayor.

Dimas has been a steady, although somewhat understated, presence in Santa Fe for much of his life. And his campaign has emphasized his roots in the community and various public roles that have made him a familiar figure to many longtime Santa Fe families.

    I was supporting Bill Dimas until I read this article. I performed "with" The Turtles and Grass Roots. Well I preformed with AC/DC, Van Halen, Metallica, Grand Funk and hundreds more. If your going to be twisting words just like Bill Richardson you scare and I'm not easily scared. As for Javier Gonzales all you have to do is ask the Carrillo family. It was proper at the time to have a family with kids so that is what he did (knowing he was gay) now it's acceptable he comes out. I worked with him and know how much of a lier he is. As far as I'm concerned there are no candidates worth my waste. Come on Democrats can't we get better candidates?

    I've known Judge Dimas a long time and both like and respect the man. But no one should vote for him because of what he is now but rather think what he would be if he wins. For sure He would be a dictator, especially if the "Strong Mayor" charter is past. Dimas would not only get to appoint his replacement on the Council but the City Manager, City Attorney, City Clerk ... Bill Dimas would become a tyrant.

    Dimas may surprise everyone on election day. He appears to have the support of every Tom, Dick and Jerry and Jane whom face struggles in their everyday living in various aspects. He appears to be the most concerned about the little guy who pays the bills. I am convinced that his position on numerous issues and his way of thinking would be beneficial to the working class in Santa Fe and to the rest of the community.
