Santa Fe County Commissioner Elizabeth “Liz” Stefanics is going to the Roundhouse, and District 39 voters in San Miguel County played a pivotal role in making that happen.
Stefanics, a Democrat, defeated Republican Theodore “Ted” Barela by less than two percentage points.
The Associated Press called that race at around noon on Wednesday.
Stefanics took 50.89 percent of the vote to Barela’s 49.11, besting him by just 334 votes.
