Planning and zoning chairman running for council seat
The Las Cruces City Council District 2 race got more crowded this weekend when the chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission entered the race.
Scholz is running on a platform of “progress, preservation and participation,” according to a news release.
“We’re going to change, and we need a vision to guide our progress,” he said.
Scholz has served on the Planning and Zoning Commission for five years and chaired the board for four. He’s vice chair of the 2040 Commission and helped write the “One Valley One Vision” report.
Scholz said he’s acutely aware of the issues the city faces and wants to give back to the community that has been his home for many years. He said Las Cruces is a “great place to live, work, and retire. We need to continue to improve our quality of life so people will come here and stay.”
Scholz is a member of the committee working on access to the new Centennial High School. He teaches journalism at New Mexico State University and earned his doctorate from the University of Delaware.
His background has included working in the software industry, residential property management, 30 years of college teaching, operating a public relations firm, and auto mechanics.
