Protect our air, land, and water and promote a Green New Deal
Here in New Mexico, we know how important the land is to who we are as a people. And we know that climate change is an existential crisis. We must reduce carbon pollution, rejoin the Paris Agreement, and invest in renewable energy resources like wind and solar, as well as clean energy tax incentives.
I have spent years raising renewable energy issues on behalf of New Mexico’s communities. I helped defeat the Fence Lake Coal Mine, started environmental programs, and served with coalitions for sustainable futures. In Congress, I will work to help bring clean energy jobs and investment dollars to Northern New Mexico so that we can put our abundant wind and solar resources to work.
My family owns ranch land in el norte, and we recognize the value of regenerative agriculture. So much of who I am, and my ties to my family, is sustained through our connections to this beautiful land we call home. That’s true for all of us who call New Mexico home, and we must act to protect and preserve this for our children and future generations.
