Las Cruces, NM (KDBC) — The Mayor of Las Cruces is looking to change jobs. Ken Miyagishima tells Newschannel 9 he's now applying to become the next top administrator for Dona Ana County. The 50 year-old still has two years left in his term as mayor, but says he decided about three weeks ago to apply for the county manager's job because he learned they were having a difficult time finding qualified candidates.
If chosen, Miyagishima says he would step down as mayor. He's not up for re-election until November of 2015.
