 Angelo Jaramillo, the son of former Santa Fe Mayor Debbie Jaramillo, announced today that he will challenge Carmichael Dominguez for City Council in District 3, which encompasses the southwest side of town.

In a statement, Jaramillo says he's running "on behalf of those without a voice and without access to public officials." He says he hears residents in his district concerned with issues like "abuse of the public trust," hikes in taxes and utility bills and "the growing economic divide amongst the well-to-do and working families in Santa Fe."

"What it really comes down to—When you're involved in the struggle, you've got to give back to the struggle," Jaramillo, 36, tells SFR.

He says his job as a student leadership coordinator at the state Public Education Department makes him fit for the council post.

He also lists access to affordable housing, high-end public education and city services as some of the top issues he'll be campaigning on. Jaramillo adds that he sees a lot of "rubber stamp" votes from Dominguez, an advocate for the city's south side who has sat on the council for nearly eight years.

"In terms of reaching out to his constituency, I don't really see that," he says of Dominguez. 

Jaramillo also joins Marie Campos, who unsuccessfully ran for District 3 last year.
