An in­spi­ra­tional leader is some­one who is able to lis­ten and mo­ti­vate his or her per­son­nel. A leader must al­low them the op­por­tu­nity to think freely and try new things, but also be ac­ces­si­ble to en­sure the in­di­vid­ual is able to get feed­back on their progress.

What do you con­sider to be New Mex­ico’s strengths and how can our state build upon these as­sets?

The state’s con­ser­va­tion ef­forts are good as well as the pro­tec­tion of the en­vi­ron­ment. New Mex­ico must con­tinue fund­ing ef­forts for species re-in­tro­duc­tion in na­tive habi­tats through­out the state.

What do you con­sider to be the weak­nesses fac­ing New Mex­ico, and how can we over­come these chal­lenges?
