Primary 2018: Jim Maldonado

Posted

Jim Maldonado, a longtime political figure in Colfax County, is running to take back a seat on the county commission in the upcoming primary.

Maldonado is running for the District 1 race against incumbent Roy P. Fernandez, who is running for his second term.

Maldonado held the D1 seat for a number of years. According to the New Mexico Secretary of State's website, he won the commission race in 2006 and again in 2010, beating two challengers in the primary the first time around and besting a Republican contender for the seat in both elections.

He is the former chairman of the board and one of the namesakes of the county's 42-bed detention center.

Maldonado also won at least one election, in 1998, to become the county sheriff.

Maldonado did not respond to a Taos News questionnaire sent to all candidates.
