why i serve
With great honor I serve House District 46, a microcosm of New Mexico. Our district is both rural and urban, hosting the stunning Española and Pojoaque Valleys, northwest City of Santa Fe, with the Santa Fe Railyard, and four sovereign Pueblos, Nambe, Pojoaque, San Ildefonso, and Tesuque.
Our district contains the vibrancy and potential of our state, with new and emerging businesses, preserving and hosting cultures and traditions for hundreds of years, and the hope and inspiration for a better New Mexico at every turn.
I am honored to serve our people in our New Mexico House of Representatives. I hope you will reach out to me with your interests, comments, concerns and inspirations. It is my great pleasure to hear and learn from you and carry our collective hopes and ideals for our state.
