Romero was a founder of the provincial El Tribuno newspaper. He was elected as Governor of Salta Province, serving from 1983-1987, and completing numerous public works aimed at the province's growing tourist industry - notably the DELMI Stadium and the San Bernardo Hill Aerial tramway. He then stepped down to become a national deputy in the Argentine Chamber of Deputies for Salta Province. He stood for governor once again in 1991, but lost and retired that year from public life.
In February 1992, whilst on holiday with his family in Brazil, Romero was killed in an automobile accident. His son, Juan Carlos Romero, later also served as Governor of Salta.
