SANTA FE — Three Democrats, a Republican and an independent were named Monday as finalists for an appointment by the governor to New Mexico’s utility regulatory agency.
GOP Gov. Susana Martinez announced the contenders for the $90,000-a-year position on the Public Regulation Commission, which is made up of five elected members.
Nearly 90 people submitted resumes in applying for the vacancy, which was created by the resignation of Jerome Block Jr. earlier this month.
