After all, just last month Gonzales told me that he'd be considering running for elected office.
Earlier this afternoon, Gonzales released a statement thanking and praising Coss for his years as mayor. His statement concluded:
I love our city. I was born and raised here and believe we have a bright future. I appreciate the encouragement I've received regarding a mayoral run but now we need to focus on our gratitude for Mayor Coss' service."Hmmm. Doesn't sound like a guy not running for mayor.
Check out the New Mexican tomorrow for more on Coss' decision by my colleague Julie Ann Grimm
