OCCUPATION: Math teacher
CANDIDATE STATEMENT: My forte is education, I have taught for 30-plus years at middle, high school and college levels. I earned my bachelor’s and master’s from the University of New Mexico and continue to teach. My goal is to help promote the educational system in New Mexico. The economy and health care are critical issues that we must confront and make it better for the good of all. The environment is critical for us to protect for future generations. We must promote clean energy use and accelerate the use of solar and renewable resources. The aforementioned is what I intend to pursue.
