Las Cruces City Council will meet today at 1:00 p.m. at City Hall.
They will be voting on a Resolution to set the date for Municipal Elections. The date proposed will coincide with National and State elections, November 3, 2009.
The following City Council seats are up for election: District 3 - Dolores Archuleta; District 5 - Gil Jones and District 6 - Sharon Thomas.
This years election will be an interesting as there is much speculation as to possible candidates to challenge Councilors in each district. There will be some hot campaign issues that all candidates will have to address including "Red Light Cameras," "Public Safety," and "Quality of Life" issues.
I would encourage you to consider serving our community and think about running for City Council. Candidate Election packets are available from the City Clerk's office at City Hall or contact Esther Martinez at 575.541.2118.
