To engage and empower the more than 63,000 registered Democrats living on the west side of Bernalillo County
Serving The Community…
Democrats Care! We encourage and support candidates who will work for the good of everyone in our community. We believe in a government that is truly “of the people, by the people, and for the people”…not just for corporations, Wall Street, or the rich.
United By A Common Goal…
Social justice and human rights are more important than corporate profits. We seek to improve the quality of life for all of our residents through grass-roots support of candidates who listen and work to implement liberal programs and legislation.
Your candidates can’t win without your help. Canvassing, phone banking, word-of-mouth, volunteering, and donating are all ways to work together to achieve our common goals.
Energy and Environment
Democrats support the use of clean energy and will train the workforce, create jobs, and support small businesses as we transition to a renewable energy infrastructure. We will position New Mexico as a key global hub for technology, manufacturing, and construction to join and accelerate the clean energy transition as a means to protect air, land, and water, and stop the worst effects of climate change.
Democrats will fulfill, honor, and strengthen to the highest extent possible the United States’ fundamental trust responsibility grounded in the Constitution, treaties, and case law to Indigenous Peoples. Democrats recognize the inherent sovereignty of Tribes, Pueblos, Bands, Villages, and Nations, and will work to enact laws and policies that are led and informed by them. We will ensure that Indigenous People have consistent access to clean air, land, and water as well as the ongoing, protected right to defend their natural resources and inseverable sovereignty.
Business, Economy, and Revenue Sources
Every American, including women, people of color, and other marginalized communities, has the right to a job that earns enough to provide adequate food, housing, clothing, healthcare, recreation, and protection from the economic fears of old age, illness, or accidents, while ensuring adequate resources for future generations to provide equally for themselves. And businesses have the right to operate free from unfair competition at home and abroad. We support a progressive tax system where all businesses and individuals pay their fair share.
Democrats believe that an educated populace is the cornerstone of sustainable democracy, and the single most important driver of economic prosperity. Affordable, high-quality pre-K through college education is a basic right that is protected by New Mexico’s dedicated, high-quality educators. We believe that it is the responsibility of the government to ensure that the public education system prepares all to participate meaningfully in society.
