City Council District 2 Forum – Saturday, August 24th

August 24, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


This forum will give District 2 residents another opportunity to assess the current roster of CCD-2 candidates. Ike Benton, the incumbent since 2005, faces strong challenges in the November election.

For those who support Councilor Benton, this is an opportunity to show your support. For those who don’t, once again, we have a situation where a split vote could result in your candidate coming up short. Please attend this forum and educate yourselves on the candidates: Ike, Zack Quintero, Robert Blanquero Nelson, Steven Baca, Connie Vigil and Joseph Griegos*. – the likely scenario, with an informed electorate, will be a runoff election if there is good turnout.

The heart of what we do is educating and activating our neighbors in an effort to get out the vote (GOTV).

  • HD 16 Rep. Moe Maestas will be the moderator.
  • * At this time (8/11), neither Connie Vigil nor Joseph Griegos have accepted.
  • Please bring your Dist 2 friends and neighbors  to this important forum co-sponsored by Nasty WomenNM, Acequia Jardin, Nahalat Shalom, Rio Grande Indivisible, and the Rio Grande Voter Registration Alliance.


Get out of the heat for 2 hours on a Saturday afternoon and learn about these candidates. Then show up at the polls…and once again, if there’s a run-off. Thank you.

Please park in designated areas so as not to disturb neighbors
