Scargall launches new bid for Santa Fe City Council seat

May 2, 2019

Gregory Scargall is making another bid for a seat on the Santa Fe City Council.

Scargall, who finished second in the District 4 council race two years ago, announced Wednesday he’s running for the seat being vacated by City Councilor Mike Harris, who decided not to seek a second term.

“There’s still some work to be done, and there’s some opportunity there that I can be a part of,” he said. “My campaign slogan this cycle is ‘Building a better community for everyone.’ So whether we’re talking about installing bus stop seats on Camino Carlos Rey to picking up and maintaining our parks to making sure that we have enough men and women in uniform in our police department … there’s still work to be done.”

Scargall, 40, is a Santa Fe native who works as the veterans coordinator and school certifying official at Santa Fe Community College. The married father of two, who served as a Navy hospital corpsman assigned to the Marines, also volunteers on a regular basis with the disaster response organization Team Rubicon.
