I am a passionate candidate for the City Council seat from District 2, and the voters of Santa Fe should know why. We must choose our councilors carefully, because they get the city’s business done.

As someone who has lived in Santa Fe all my life and operated my own business here for 24 years, I know the impact that city governance has on our lives. I am a new dad, and someone who comes from a family of 12 brothers and sisters, 31 nieces and nephews and 26 great-nieces and nephews. I have seen many Arellanos educated and working in Santa Fe. As a general contractor, large-scale commercial and residential landscaper, and former property manager and restaurant manager, I also know that we are not backing homegrown businesses the way we should.
