LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) — [auth] The mayor of Las Cruces is seeking help from Los Angeles’ mayor and Albuquerque’s former mayor to erase outstanding debt from his re-election campaign two years ago.
The Las Cruces Sun-News reports (http://bit.ly/11jh9Xm) that Mayor Ken Miyagishima is working to convince Los Angeles mayor Anthony Villaraigosa and former Albuquerque mayor Martin Chavez to participate in an upcoming fundraiser.
Miyagishima says Villaraigosa is working on his schedule and Chavez may join too.
Villaraigosa is Los Angeles’ mayor until July 1.
