Collectible Candidates

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s city election trading cards!

January 13, 2010, 12:00 am

If Superman is the “good guy” superhero and Batman is the playboy and Wolverine is just plain badass…then who is Santa Fe Mayor David Coss? And could you trade him for Catwoman—or rather, mayoral candidate Asenath Kepler?
These were the questions on SFR’s mind during the planning of our 2010 City of Santa Fe municipal election coverage (with more to come, of course).

Here, we present the candidates for the March 2 city elections, complete with their superpowers, foibles and little-known secret identities (pen collector, Snoopy fan, Air Force pilot). Cut them out, trade them with your friends and get them signed: Who knows what they’ll be worth come April?

You can also read extended comments from the candidates about their talking points online at, along with other election information.
