A few weeks ago, a political observer told me that he was hearing reports that Mayor Tony Marquez wouldn’t run for a second term.
I didn’t really believe that at the time. Marquez is a relatively young, ambitious guy. Why would he voluntarily relinquish his throne?
Of course, the mayor won’t show his cards about his plans for next year. He won’t even return my calls or e-mails.
Marquez works in Santa Fe, so people around here don’t see him much. He’s removed from the town he leads.
