1. My primary response might be to study our investment options; there are other ways New Mexico can consider to raise revenue without raising taxes.

2. Yes, I support a minimum wage increase, to at least $9.00 an hour.

3. This issue requires more study. My goal as a state representative would be to reward teachers for 99 percent proficency. The current system offers few incentives and too many means of punishment. Administrators do not need to create a punitive system for hard working teachers.
