About 225 people logged on for a candidate forum held via Zoom on Wednesday night for what the Democratic Party of Santa Fe County billed as “The Magnificent Seven” Democrats running for the 3rd Congressional District.
Less than a month before the June 2 primary election, the candidates had an opportunity to present their views on issues, talk about what distinguishes them from the other candidates and what they would do to benefit their northern New Mexico constituents if they are elected to Congress to replace Ben Ray Luján, who is running for retiring U.S. Sen. Tom Udall’s seat.
Santa Fe attorney Teresa Leger Fernandez brought up changing tax policy in her responses to two different questions. Asked which House committee they would like to be assigned to, she said the Ways and Means Committee because it addresses tax policy. She later cited tax policy reform and access to health care as two actions that could be taken in Congress to address inequality.
