Town of Estancia Mayoral and Council Forum


Municipal Judge Candidate Meet and Greet


Please come join us in a Forum of Mayoral and Trustee candidates, and a Meet and Greet with the Municipal Judge Candidates on February 17, 2018, at 11:00am.


The Forum and Meet and Greet will be held at the East Torrance Soil and Water Conservation District Complex, located at 600 Tenth Street, Estancia, NM.


The doors will open following a parade that will start at 10:00am through the Town of Estancia. Candidates will be available to introduce themselves prior to the Forum.


The Forum will focus on the objectives of each candidate as a potential elected official of the Town of Estancia. Participating Mayoral candidates are Nathan M. Dial, Albert L. Lovato and Manuel A. Romero. Participating Council candidates are Cory T. Dryden, Noah J. Sedillo, Mark A. Martinez, J. Morrow Hall, Glenda J. Page and Stella L. Chavez.

Candidates for Municipal Judge are Martin A. Lucero, Michelle M. Schmidt and Bruce R. Dile.

Each candidate, excluding judges, may give an opening statement followed by a question and answer period. The Moderator will then select questions submitted in writing from the audience; each of the candidates will have the opportunity to answer. Questions directly pointed at an individual will not be permitted.  At the end of the Forum, candidates will present closing statements.

This meeting is an informational Forum, not a debate. This is a
non-partisan event, and the endorsement of candidates will be prohibited. To preserve this non-partisan election process, please do not display any additional signs other than the signs you’ve displayed in the parade.


Means for having your questions available for the Moderator will be available upon arrival.


It is an honor to have this forum moderated by Mr.Ted Barela, our preceding New Mexico State Senator for District 39, Town of Estancia Mayor, Town of Estancia Trustee, retired New Mexico Department of Transportation, Area Project Manager and currently a Trainer and Project Manager for Bohannon Huston
