ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Six people on Tuesday filed their candidacy for the Bernalillo County Commission’s District 4 seat, including the office’s former occupant.
Tim Cummins, who served the county’s northern district from 2000-2008, will face three other Republicans during the June 2 primary: George Benson, Sean Kesani and Tina Tomlin.
Felix Nuñez and Wende Schwingendorf are set to face off in the Democratic primary for the same seat.
Current District 4 Commissioner Lonnie Talbert, a Republican, cannot run for reelection due to term limits.
The other Bernalillo County offices up for election this year include treasurer, clerk and District 2 commissioner, which all feature incumbents.
The District 3 commission seat is also up for grabs this year. The district’s current representative, Jim Collie, joined the board in January via an appointment from Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham. Collie is serving the final year of Maggie Hart Stebbins’ term following her departure for a job in state government but has said he would not run to keep the seat long-term.
No Republicans filed for any of the other Bernalillo County offices up for election this year, according to data on the New Mexico Secretary of State’s website.
The Democrats who will compete in the June 2 primary are:
• District 2 Commissioner: Frank Baca, incumbent Stephen Michael Quezada and Rudy Zamora;
• District 3 Commissioner: Adriann Barboa, Adrian Neal Carver and Marcos Gonzales;
• County Clerk: incumbent Linda Stover (unopposed);
• County Treasurer: incumbent Nancy Bearce, Donny Albert Daniels, Patrick Padilla and Bernadette Sanchez.
