On the Issues

There are many critical issues facing new Mexicans each and every day. I am working to address as many issues as I can in Santa Fe.

A top priority is to break the cycle of poverty and create opportunities for every New Mexican to succeed.  Our state can be a safe place to find a good-paying job and raise a family.

I will fight to cut red tape so local small businesses can thrive and create jobs.

Work to keep government small and efficient as well as taxes low for our hard-working families.

New Mexico should be one of the safest states in the country. I will work to strengthen laws that will improve public safety to protect our neighborhoods and communities.

It is critical we improve the quality of public education here in New Mexico. I will fight to ensure children can read by the 3rd grade and tax dollars spent on the classroom are not wasted on bureaucracy.

Government is here to serve us, the people of New Mexico, not special interests.  I will fight to hold state government accountable and transparent.
