SANTA FE – Taos Mayor Dan Barrone said Friday he would not run to retain his seat in the New Mexico House of Representatives.
Barrone said the decision was, in large part, due to the COVID-19 outbreak and a desire to see his community through a difficult time.
“I serve as the mayor of our community, and I think I have a responsibility to my constituents here in my community,” he said. “I need to try to figure out, when the coronavirus is all over, how we’re going to put our community back together, how we’re going to continue to put our businesses back together.”
