    What I mean by 'Progressive'

  • Media Literacy

    Incorporating media literacy in Civics is important for increasing students’ intellectual curiosity and promoting self-efficacy. It also helps students become informed citizens instead of manipulated citizens. In a country where so many take in fake news and manipulative commercials at face value without research it brings Jefferson's words to mind, "An educated citizenry is a vital requisite for our survival as a free people."

  • Unions

    If you hate unions I am not your candidate. I am a proud member of the New Mexico American Federation of Teachers. I am a Past local Union president in Taos who negotiated many contracts and took our local school district to task for labor violations and won. I also served as AFTNM's VP of K-12 and as it's state treasurer. My grandfather was a Union Steward in a canning company. When I ran for the NM Senate in 2008 against a Republican incumbent I was endorsed by every union in this state. I am Union proud! My daughter works for AFTNM.

    Im so critical. I have never in my life endorced anybody because I'm so critical. I endorse Jeff Carr for Lt Governor because he walks the Walk and leads by example. I believe his core responsibility is to support our youth and our community above all else. I have seen his dedication and commitments first hand and can honestly say for once I am impressed above​ and beyond all others.
