Tony Valdez, who had planned to run for San Miguel County sheriff, has decided against entering the race after all.
Valdez, an investigator with the district attorney’s office, said he decided not to run for “personal reasons.”
Valdez had held a fundraiser at the Night Owl, complete with a band. He said he would put that money into a campaign fund for a race in 2014, either for sheriff or magistrate judge.
Valdez, who is a member of the Luna Community College Board of Trustees, said he appreciated the support for his campaign for sheriff.
