I am so proud of my son.
He’s in high school, loves playing guitar, and has dreams of becoming an engineer. He’s a sixth generation New Mexican. Our family roots are in Berino, Anthony and Las Alturas.

As your Democratic State Representative and the only southern New Mexico legislator in Democratic House leadership, I hope to continue making sure your voice, and that of southern New Mexico’s, impact the major decisions facing our state.
