Las Cruces Mayor Seeks Ex-L.A. Mayor's Help With Debt

The mayor of Las Cruces is seeking help from former Los Angeles and Albuquerque mayors to erase outstanding debt from his re-election campaign two years ago.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that Mayor Ken Miyagishima is working to convince former Los Angeles mayor Anthony Villaragosa and former Albuquerque mayor Martin Chavez to participate in an upcoming fundraiser.

Miyagishima says Villaragosa is working on his schedule and Chavez may join, too.

The mayor of southern New Mexico's largest city says his campaign still around $25,000 in debt.

Miyagishima says he thinks he can pay off the debt by the end of the year.
