'Breaking Bad' Actor to Run for New Mexico County Commissioner

Steven Michael Quezada, who played DEA agent Steven Gomez on Breaking Bad, was expected to announce on Tuesday, that he will be running for Bernalillo County commissioner in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The actor and comedian, who is a member of the Albuquerque school board, is reportedly joining a race alongside at least three other contenders. Recently, the area made headlines when the Bernalillo County Commission approved a planned community in spite of critics who said the development could take water away from other communities in the area. Already an outspoken member of the community, Quezada recently spoke at a gathering in Albuquerque to discuss how the community fights crime, the Office of the Attorney General's Third Annual Summit on Community Violence.
