Occupation Retired
I would like to continue to work to make New Mexico and my district thrive. I want to make our schools stronger, access to quality jobs more available, and our families thrive.
I have spent years as State Representative working and sometimes fighting to protect the rights of our residents. I also served as magistrate judge which provided me with an understanding of the law.
Continuing to provide support to our veterans; ensuring that reproductive rights are secure; working to make sure our children receive access to highest quality education.
Provide incentives for businesses and property owners to actively conserve water. Hold industries accountable for their impact on our state’s water. Allocate for more reservoirs throughout the state.
Keep guns out of the hands of criminals and children. Increase opportunities for communities to develop mental health crisis intervention teams to work to prevent people in crisis from having negative interactions with police.
I would support a lower gross receipts tax. I would especially support removal of gross receipts tax on feminine hygiene products and infant diapers.
