He's gotten away with at least 2 DWI's and he's a great role model for kids. I'm sure as parents we would want our kids to aspire to be just like him!! Oh yeah, he'd make a great County Commissioner.....NOT!

You are in Afghanistan (presumably fighting for our country), and you use your military internet time to campaign for a city councilor?

I guess it's a good thing you don't have warped priorities.

It's too bad there are so many haters out there. I am here in Afghanistan and know there are better things to debate about. I feel John Paul would do an excellent job, he is a go getter and has shown he is willing to do something for the community. Instead of trying to slam him, we should be encouraging him to do something good for our community. The world out here is a terrible place, the problem is that a lot of people have forgotten how good we Americans have it in our wonderful country. I fully support John Paul Romero and hope he continues to do a fine job like I know he can.

The Pueblo is the biggest employer of non US residents. Most of the labor is imported from other countries. Also think of the huge amounts of money they take from the community through gaming. Think of the enormous amounts of water that is being robbed from the aquifer for these golf courses. It is no wonder people are losing their homes and are impoverished in this part of the County. The Pueblos have many lobbyists who work quite effectively getting legislation and buying politicians that benefit their interests. We can only expect another business as usual clone by the looks of these candidates that are coming out at the Pueblo.

Concerned, I can see that you have little brains, I am not in the military but working overseas, don't assume something you know nothing about, and yes I am helping our great country unlike you Mr. Negitive, grow up!

And how much do you pay your "around the globe" laborers? And how many people have indeed lost their homes to gambling? How many of our young people and elders spend their paychecks at the Casino? What programs do you have to address problem gamblers? Tribal success is one thing which is admirable but on the backs of your neighbors is another.

Hey Lenny,

PS neither of the candidates running for this seat are Native American, therefore they have nothing to do with gambling or golf courses. Furthermore, Lenny has lived not only in Santa Fe but also in Cuarteles for many years, so Lenny is obviously not only serving Pojoaque but rather all the communities in Santa Fe County District 1.

Lenny has issues,but he really is not a suitable candidate for commisioner.His strong skills are coaching kids but lacking in people skills with adults.

Guests advised the Santa Fe New Mexican of ROmero's past DWI's in this thread, but the newspaper staff ignored the public's concerns. Now, six months later, the newspaper has reported facts that were available online the day this story was published. It's no wonder politicos in Northern New Mexiico get away with so much -- local media is asleep at the wheel and cries foul when anybody says they should wake up.
