While our state and national economy are heading for better economic times, improvement will occur incrementally over the next few years. New Mexico government leaders, the legislature and public officials have maintained a prudent approach to budgeting and funding state government, while maintaining the core services it provides to the citizens of New Mexico.
My commitment remains:
Funding for Senior Citizens' and Youth Programs
Adequate Funding for Education
Greater Government Efficiency
Responsible Tax Revenue and Budget Policy
Adequate Funding for Public Employees and Teachers
I look forward to working for and representing you in the upcoming 2012 Legislature. My record, results and consistent position on issues are my foundation for remaining a senior member in the NM Legislature and most important; Your Full-Time Legislator for District 48; for Santa Fe; and for New Mexico!
