RIO RANCHO, N.M. — Lawmakers don’t always agree, but on Wednesday afternoon at Santa Ana Star Center, a trio of Rio Rancho’s legislators agreed on the need for improved infrastructure, roads and better education.
The three, all Republicans — Sen. Craig Brandt and Reps. Jane Powdrell-Culbert and Jason Harper — spoke to attendees of the Rio Rancho Regional Chamber of Commerce’s quarterly luncheon during a legislative roundtable at Santa Ana Star Center, sponsored by the Observer and moderated by Editor Argen Duncan.
After they’d finished speaking, Sandoval County Commissioner David Heil and Rio Rancho Mayor Gregg Hull echoed their comments, repeating the need for improved infrastructure and the continued work to complete Paseo del Volcan, aka Pete V. Domenici Highway, from Unser Road to, first, Paseo del Norte, and thence to Interstate-40.
By legislator, here are the major points gleaned:
Powdrell-Culbert: She’s in support of anything that will make her District 44 a better place to live, as well as aiming to “work really hard to try to mitigate as many new laws that affect business and new business.”
