Republican Simon Kubiak today announced his entry into the race for District 1 County Commissioner for Bernalillo County.
“I am running for county commission to bring fiscal responsibility to government and help create a business-friendly environment to kick-start our economy. I look forward to serving my community and neighbors as a County Commissioner to help make Bernalillo County a place that keeps taxes low, so small businesses can create good, high-paying jobs for our residents,” Kubiak said.
Kubiak, an attorney and small businessman, owns and is managing partner of Kubiak & Kubiak, P.C., an Albuquerque law firm.
“I know how to run an organization and stay on budget. That’s the kind of direction we need in county government. Once elected, my focus will be on wise and efficient use of our tax dollars and creating an environment that makes it easier for small businesses to create jobs.” Kubiak said.
County Commission District 1 is made up of half of the West Side and all of the North Valley. Currently, it is represented by Alan Armijo, who is term limited.
Former Health Department Cabinet Secretary Michelle Lujan Grisham and Loretta Naranjo-Lopez, a retired City of Albuquerque planner, have already announced their campaigns for the District 1 seat.
