ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An actor from the TV show “Breaking Bad” is running for a school board seat in New Mexico.
Steven Michael Quezada plays agent Steven Gomez on the Albuquerque-based show.
Quezada says he’s running in District 5, a newly created board district on Albuquerque’s west side.
There’s no incumbent in that district and Quezada is the first candidate who has filed so far.
Quezada says Albuquerque is his home and he wants to impact the lives of children.
The Albuquerque Journal (http://bit.ly/TXZbCK) reports that three of Quezada’s four children attend the Public Academy for the Performing Arts. That’s an APS-authorized charter school, where Quezada has been active on the governing board.
