Robert "Bob" Godshall was tapped, Saturday, by the Republican Party of Bernalillo County (RPBC) Central Committee to run for the seat of outgoing State Representative Larry Larranaga this fall.
"It is an immeasurable loss to the RPBC and the state of New Mexico having Rep. Larranaga leave us," county party chairman Robert Aragon stated.
"The 20 years of dedicated service Larry gave us in the Roundhouse is deeply appreciated and will be sorely missed. We are fortunate to have in Bob someone who has demonstrated equal dedication and integrity to serve our state and the residents in district 27!"
Bob is a longtime homeowner in House District 27 and serves as the county party's vice chair in that Ward.
In his remarks to the RPBC Central Committee, Bob shared his passion for the state of New Mexico and about the three core concerns of his: Crime, failing schools and jobs. These three challenges facing our city and state will be his primary focus should District 27 elect him to serve in the Roundhouse.
Candidate for NM House District 27, NE Albuquerque, Robert "Bob" Godshall is retired from Homeland Security. Most of Bob's career was spent protecting our nation's interior as an ICE and Border Patrol Agent. A long-time homeowner in the district, Bob is a former Vice Chairman of Ward 27 of the county Republican Party. He is recently a proud grandfather.
