Early life and education[edit]

Barrone has worked for over 26 years at Olguin's Sawmill, a full-service mill located in El Prado, New Mexico. In 2006, he was elected to serve as a member of the Taos County Commission. In March 2018, Barrone was elected to serve as the mayor of Taos.[3] In 2020, after incumbent representative Roberto Gonzales was nominated to serve in the New Mexico Senate, the Taos County Commission voted to appoint Barrone to his vacant seat in the House.
