What makes you an ideal candidate for this position?
I have led the Democratic Party of Bernalillo County’s Resolutions Committee since September 2019 and want to ensure that the Democratic Party of New Mexico pushes a progressive agenda that honors the richness and diversity of our state while ensuring that the Party remains inclusive and affirming of and for all New Mexico Democrats. I grew up in Lincoln County, attended high school in Albuquerque, and have lived in Albuquerque for 20 years as an adult. With my training and experience as a lawyer I’ll bring a studied approach to forming the Party’s platform and resolutions. And with my meager comedy background — Funniest Teenager in Albuquerque 1994 Stand-up Comedy Champion (I’ll always have that!) — I aim to get people involved with SPARC and the Democratic Party of Bernalillo County’s Resolutions Committee.
What is the number one goal you would like to achieve for the Democratic Party of New Mexico in this position? And how do you envision yourself working to achieve this goal?
My goal is to foment liberalism statewide by pushing the Democratic Party of New Mexico toward an ever-more-progressive agenda. I’ll achieve this goal by working with Democrats statewide on platforms and resolutions without harming our Party’s ability to field strong candidates in every election.
