Red River mayor joins District 42 race

Posted

Red River Mayor Linda Calhoun has announced her campaign for the District 42 Representative seat in the New Mexico Legislature. 

Calhoun was first elected in 2006 as Red River’s first female mayor and is currently serving her fourth term. Calhoun has lived in Red River for 42 years and owns Calhoun Real Estate as well as Main Street Mercantile in the town. 

 “With our current education, public safety and housing issues, we need leaders focused on working together to make New Mexico better,” Calhoun said in a press release. 

District 42 covers much of Taos County and represents the area from the Colorado border to the southern county line. 

Calhoun joins Taos Mayor Dan Barrone, who currently holds the seat, and Kristina Ortez on the campaign for the legislature position. 

Barrone was appointed by Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham to fill the District 42 seat vacated by Roberto “Bobby” Gonzales. Gonzales left his seat to become a New Mexico Senator for District 6 following the death of Carlos Cisneros.
