Priorities

Education

Improving our education system begins with improving how we treat those we trust to educate our young people. In the Legislature, I was proud to support raises for teachers and a historic investment in New Mexico’s schools. We must continue our work so that every school prepares our students for a bright future.

Infrastructure

For our small business owners, students, educators, job seekers and more, having high-speed internet access is an absolute necessity. I am fighting to expand broadband in our district and help close the digital divide that often overlooks communities like ours.

Healthcare

We need to ensure that quality and affordable healthcare is available in District 4. We should also strengthen Indian Health Services to ensure our Native American communities have the best access to care possible. I am proud to have voted to protect coverage for people with pre-existing conditions and expand access to affordable care. Let’s keep making progress.

Supporting Our Veterans

How we treat our veterans speaks volumes about our priorities, our shared sense of duty, and our respect for the men and women who defend our freedoms. Veterans deserve robust access to services, including affordable housing and quality healthcare they can count on.

Defending Our Community

As an active member of the Navajo Nation, improving the lives of those in our Native American communities is one of my most important priorities. I will work in the State House to ensure that our community is not forgotten in the recovery from COVID-19, strengthen the AMBER Alert system in the Navajo Nation and make sure the REAL ID Act does not unfairly target our community.

Bringing People Together

In spite of the disheartening nature of political discourse in our country today, I will work each and every day to bring people together. Because when legislators work together to solve our state’s problems—and not against each other to score cheap political points—real progress can be made.
