"I believe New Mexico can be a place of strong, safe communities where our kids can be happy growing up, and can build a life here when they are grown."
We will double down on clean energy to create more good paying jobs; we'll make it easier for those who want to start or expand their small business, and we must increase the minimum wage locally and federally. I believe in a fair society, where hardworking New Mexicans all have a shot at opportunities for success, and where corporations and the wealthiest all pay their fair share in taxes.
Educational attainment is linked to economic security. It’s time we make smart investments in education and find real solutions that pull our kids and all New Mexican’s out of poverty.
I support a woman's right to choose when and how to have a child, full access to contraception, and believe that everyone should have access to affordable healthcare. Let's fix Obamacare to protect healthcare for 250,000 New Mexicans, and move to a universal health care program. No American should face bankruptcy or death because of a lack of healthcare.
Climate change is real, and poses a real threat to our economy and our way of life; we must work for real solutions to stop it. We must fight for clean air and clean water, and drastically reduce our carbon emissions. We must make real change now so that we protect a future for our children. Public lands are there for all of us, and not for a few at the top to make a profit.
Both of my parents were Veterans, and my dad is buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Our country must live up to the promises made to our Veterans in exchange for their service and their lives.
I will hold #45 and his cronies accountable. I will fight against the demagoguery represented by the current administration, and do everything in my power to create greater transparency in our government.
CIVIL RIGHTS & LIBERTIES
I will continue to champion equal rights for all and protections from discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, and religion. I support the right to privacy and net neutrality, and I will work to continue the expansion of broadband access across New Mexico.
Foreign Policy & Immigration
I believe in foreign policy that mends fences while protecting the long-term interests of the United States, and remembering that this country was built by immigrants. Immigration policy must recognize this country's dependency on (and exploitation of) immigrant labor, and treat with dignity and humanity those who work and build their families here.
I will advocate for fair trade policies that do justice to our Labor Unions, and will support globalization to stand against the fascist agenda represented by President Trump and European right-wing extremists.
