For those of us who don’t live in CD3, we need to support those candidates who share our values and who we know are qualified and will work hard for New Mexico and our country. Teresa is that candidate in CD3. While many of us are also focused on important races around the country (let’s beat Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham!), I hope that we’ll also work to elect the right people here at home.
Here’s a note from Mark Rudd about Teresa:
Many of us here in Bernalillo County don’t watch what’s happening in the northern congressional district, CD 3. It’s an open seat due to Rep. Ben Ray Lujan’s running for the Senate. By far the best candidate of a crowded and confusing field is our dear friend Teresa Leger Fernandez. Marla and I have known and loved Teresa for years as a member of the Sanchez Family headed by Doña Petra Sanchez here in Albuquerque.
Teresa has never run for office before, but over the course of her distinguished career as an attorney and as a volunteer she has worked tirelessly on behalf of native tribes, hispanic communities, women, the environment, and all those who are not privileged . She’s a daughter of New Mexico, having grown up in Las Vegas, NM, in a family of educators and political reformers. Teresa has service to New Mexicans in her blood.
Please check out her long experience as a White House Fellow, Chair of the Board of Homewise (now in Albuquerque as well as SF) and a whole host of organizations at her website. It would be very hard to find anyone who knows and loves our state as well as Teresa.
