DPNM Chair Jessica Velasquez released the following statement regarding the 2021 municipal elections:
“I have deep admiration and appreciation for candidates running for office this year who reflect Democratic values, as well as the hundreds of thousands of New Mexicans who got out and voted in the 2021 municipal elections.
“Democrats are proud to see bold candidates stepping up to fight for our values across New Mexico and at every level of government. As midterm elections approach, we look forward to supporting these strong Democratic candidates as they continue to grow their careers.
“We were also thrilled to see thousands of Democrats cast their ballots in 2021. The energy that we’ve seen from Democrats over the last few years is still going strong, and we will continue to build that momentum as we head into 2022.
“Thank you to every candidate who had the courage to run, congratulations to successful candidates, and heartfelt appreciation to everyone who participated in this election.”
