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.
