County Commission: Holian, Stefanics maintain leads

From the Santa Fe New Mexican, "Phaedra Haywood | The New Mexican, 6/3/2008

Santa Fe County is about to make history.

With 85 of 86 precincts reporting Tuesday night, Santa Fe County Democrats were on the verge of electing a first-ever female majority on the Board of County Commissioners.

If women are elected in commission Districts 4 and 5, as it appears they will be, the five-member policymaking body will be made up of three women and two men.

In District 4, retired physicist Kathy Holian had about 41 percent of the votes. Opponents Mark Marquez and Elizabeth "Dolly" Lujan had about 31 percent and 27 percent respectively.

In the crowded District 5 race, former state Sen. Elizabeth "Liz" Stefanics was clearly ahead of her nearest opponent, Ralph Jaramillo, with about 52 percent of the vote to his 31 percent." more>>>>
