Colón Picks Up Support from Padilla in Lt. Gov. Bid

New Mexico native and former Naval Officer Matthew Padilla is expected to formally endorse former Democratic Party of New Mexico Chairman Brain Colon for Lieutentant Governor of New Mexico in next year's party primary.

Padilla had been considering running for himself, but tonight he'll tell urge his supporters to back Colon at a candidate's forum in Santa Fe County.
The next decade is one that will undoubtedly see increased global opportunities and challenges that will impact New Mexico. A New Mexico that does not improve and address our education emergency will not be able to compete. Furthermore, a New Mexico that does not incorporate sustainable development into our long term planning will miss out on future green jobs and may be at risk of losing its rural heritage as water becomes increasingly scarce. Addressing these issues will require strong new leadership in Santa Fe.
