Election Guide

Bloomfield voters will choose two city councilors in the March 1 election.

All elected positions in the city are at-large seats, meaning the candidates do not represent a specific part of the city. To run for city council, candidates must be residents of Bloomfield.

Each seat carries a four-year term.

Three candidates are vying for two seats on the council.

Matt Pennington and Curtis Lynch are running for re-election. They will be challenged by Benny Kling, a retired environmental enforcement officer for the New Mexico Environmental Department.

Both Pennington and Lynch were elected in 2008 and then re-elected in 2012.

Pennington owns and manages the Farmers Market grocery stores in Bloomfield and Flora Vista. Lynch is a supervisor at the San Juan Generating Station in Waterflow.

Voting will take place from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. March 1 in the Bloomfield City Council Chambers at City Hall, 915 N. First St. in Bloomfield.
