Quezada believes that his background will make him the perfect candidate for the job. “I don’t think I’m better than anyone but I think I can add something. I grew up here. I grew up very poor and this community is important to me.”

He vowed not to let acting get in the way of his mission of bringing people together. He said,”I’m good at that. I just won’t be able to take as many gigs or make as many movies but I’ll still work. Why would they expect me to quit my job? Why should that count me out?”

The actor already serves on boards and committees in his town. He said, “Everyone knows me as an actor and comedian but the Albuquerque community knows me more as a community activist,” he said. “I was on the charter school board of education and I currently sit on the public schools board. I’m fighting for education and choices for kids.”
