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

Peo­ple will al­ways be our great­est as­set, es­pe­cially our young peo­ple. New Mex­ico also has phe­nom­e­nal nat­u­ral as­sets and plenty of room to grow.

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

We are hav­ing a tough time merg­ing our hu­man po­ten­tial with our re­source po­ten­tial. We are spend­ing tremen­dous ef­fort fight­ing drugs and crime; we need to fo­cus more on set­ting the con­di­tions to guide our youth away from those paths and to­ward more pro­duc­tive pro­grams.

De­scribe your vi­sion for New Mex­ico in one sen­tence.

New Mex­ico will lead in the de­vel­op­ment and ap­pli­ca­tion of ed­u­ca­tional and med­i­cal ser­vice op­por­tu­ni­ties in ru­ral ar­eas that will ben­e­fit the world.
