VOTE Paula Garcia for District 40 NM State Representative!

I’m excited to announce that I am launching my campaign for State Representative District 40. The Honorable State Representative Nick Salazar, after a distinguished 45 years of service, has decided not to seek re-election. He leaves an honorable legacy of service and advocacy for northern New Mexico.

I am running for office because I want to build upon our rich history and work toward a vibrant future for our families and children in northern New Mexico. My life’s work has been to serve our communities by working to strengthen rural economies and to promote healthy families.

Building a vibrant future means we must work together for a quality education system for our children, jobs and businesses that support families, access to health care, farming and ranching livelihoods, services for our seniors and veterans, and protection of our land and water. As a legislator, I would be a passionate and dedicated servant of the people and use my experience to fight for resources for the communities of our district.

My campaign will involve listening to the people of our district to understand the needs of our communities and working together to bring about needed change to improve our quality of life.

The communities of our district are home to some of the most beautiful people and landscapes in the world. I believe that all families in our district deserve economic opportunities, quality education and health care, and a healthy environment. As a leader, I have been a trusted and tenacious advocate for people I represent, and I hope to apply that experience in the New Mexico State Legislature.
