John Olivas, an outfitter who also serves as northern director of the conservation group New Mexico Wilderness Alliance, lost his Mora County Commission seat to George Trujillo in a three-way Democratic primary Tuesday.
Olivas told the Albuquerque Journal that, like many in the county, he considered the election a referendum on the fracking ban. "With the people that voted, that was the main issue .
