I am the youngest son of Margaret (Landavazo) Muñoz and the late Edward Muñoz. I was born and raised along with my five siblings in Gallup. I attended Gallup Cathedral and graduated from Gallup High School. After attending college at the University of Arizona, I returned to my hometown to work with my father. He taught me the most important values are hard work, loyalty and pride in our community, lessons I have passed on to my family.
When my father Eddie Muñoz was Mayor of Gallup, he walked to Santa Fe to change the law that allowed for drive-up liquor windows and tougher DWI penalties. His actions and commitment to improving the lives of so many people in our community still has a major impact on me and guides my dedication to public service.
My wife Sharmyn and I have been blessed with two sons, Zane and Landon.
