startups & small businesses need Deb

My name is Billy Trabaudo, and I'm the CEO of a Digital Consulting and Software startup here in Albuquerque. Like other business owners in New Mexico, I know that our state has tremendous potential. Our state is already home to amazing innovators, entrepreneurs, and small business owners who have chosen to invest right here at home.

But right now, New Mexico is at a critical moment in its history, one that will define our future in the tech industry. For us it is clear that New Mexico could become the tech capital of the Southwest but we need the right leadership to take us there. Leadership that supports our small businesses, leadership that understands this state’s amazing potential, and leadership focused on innovation.

That's why I'm proud to endorse Deb Haaland for Congress. I've read Deb's bold economic platform, which she released this morning -- and I’m confident that she is the right choice for startups and small businesses throughout Albuquerque and CD1.

I'm originally from Albuquerque, went to college in Santa Fe, and chose to stay and invest in my home community. But, that's not the case for many of my peers. Our city and state are losing too many talented and hardworking people who grew up here, because they feel New Mexico lacks cutting edge opportunities. But we can fix that by building an economy that encourages innovation and industry. That provides the support for people like me, our small business owners and entrepreneurs, who want to grow New Mexico for New Mexicans. Deb has the ideas and experience to do just that and thats why I am proud to support her.

The clear choice for me and for all small business owners is Deb Haaland for New Mexico's First Congressional District. She is the only candidate who I trust to take our state into the future.

Deb needs our help to end this month strong. Please make a contribution of $25, $50, or $100 today to make sure it's her voice representing us in Washington.
