The New Mexico Democratic Party is $60,000.00 in debt. The NM House is Republican for the first time in over 60 years. Governor Martinez is now targeting Democratic state senators, hoping for a Republican complete take-over of the state. Then there will be no stopping the toxic legislation that the Senate was able to block this session. We know that you are all aware of these facts. It seems imperative that we begin to cease repeating
the same old mistakes hoping for a different outcome. It’s time for a change (that we really can and do believe in) and progressive voices are surfacing all over the country. We are asking that leaders stand unequivocally for the progressive Democratic party values that made us proud to be Democrats at one time. And we are asking everyone we know to elect those leaders who do that best. Otherwise, there is no way to tell the difference between the two parties. Actually, we need a 2nd party. 80% of young people did not vote in the last
general election. Maybe they have a point.
We have a chance this month to elect folks who will represent the Party at State Central Committee. They will be in a unique position to demand progressive reform. And please get to know the new State Party Chair. Both candidates are well qualified and able. He or she should be listening to our concerns and ideas.
