New Mexico House Speaker Resigns for Bernalillo County Attorney Position
Former House Speaker Ken Martinez has resigned from the Legislature, effective Wednesday, July 20. Because Martinez was not seeking re-election this year, Harry Garcia, a businessman from Grants, has already been elected to Martinez’s seat serving House District 69, beginning in January.
Gov. Susana Martinez may choose an interim successor to serve until Garcia’s term begins once she receives recommendations from the six counties the seat represents, which include Bernalillo, Cibola, McKinley, San Juan, Socorro, and Valencia.
