Rayellen Smith

Rayellen Smith

I am a retired CPA, with a strong background in leading big projects, inspiring others and bringing innovation.  As the current treasurer for the Bernalillo County Democratic Party, I know the ropes and reporting rules.  As a member of the Budget and Finance Committee I have learned a lot about party finances and how to report.
I have four main goals
1.¬† Improve transparency of financial information –¬† all democrats in New Mexico need to understand how their money is spent and where it comes from in clear and recognizable¬†formats.¬† We should not have to go ‘find’ this information, it should be provided to us.
2. Grow¬†grassroots sustainer programs: people will give more when they trust what they are getting and know clearly what we are doing. We need every democrat in the state to ‘give a little’.
3. Partner with county parties to learn from each other: there are lots of great treasurers out there, we need to build a community that can learn and grow.
4. Align party spending to stated party goals:  when we align our spending to what is important to Democrats, we get more donations  when people see this alignment.

Your contribution will be used in connection with federal elections. Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the names, mailing addresses, occupation and name of employer of the individuals whose contributions exceed $200 per calendar year. Contributions are not tax deductible for state and federal income tax purposes.
