How do you de­fine “lead­er­ship”? For me, good lead­er­ship in­cludes qual­i­ties such as be­ing re­sults-ori­ented, hav­ing vi­sion, del­e­gat­ing well, be­ing good at deal­ing with con­flict, be­ing trusted, mak­ing good de­ci­sions and be­ing a great com­mu­ni­ca­tor.

What do you con­sider to be the top is­sue or con­cern fac­ing New Mex­ico to­day? For New Mex­ico, child wel­fare and ed­u­ca­tion are at the top of my list. I feel if these two links in the chain are strong, peo­ple in gen­eral will have a much greater chance of liv­ing a happy and pro­duc­tive life.

What do you con­sider to be the top ac­com­plish­ment in the past 5 years in our

state? Why? The pas­sage of Sen­ate Bill 53 in 2017, which is help­ing to con­nect New Mex­i­cans in ev­ery corner of the state to high speed in­ter­net. Our state has a large dig­i­tal di­vide, which has left our ru­ral and tribal com­mu­ni­ties out of web-based op­por­tu­ni­ties.
