How do you de­fine “lead­er­ship”? The abil­ity to in­spire and mo­ti­vate oth­ers with ef­fec­tive com­mu­ni­ca­tion. Good lead­ers pos­sess skills that make oth­ers want to fol­low them.

What do you con­sider to be the top is­sue or con­cern fac­ing

New Mex­ico to­day? There are a few, but I con­sider the top is­sue to be ed­u­ca­tion. Con­sis­tently rank­ing 50th in the coun­try in ed­u­ca­tion is of ma­jor con­cern. The high dropout rate speaks vol­umes.

What do you con­sider to be the state’s top ac­com­plish­ment in the past 5 years in our state? Why? Eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment. Pro­vid­ing in­cen­tives for busi­ness de­vel­op­ment and cre­at­ing jobs through tourism, film and the Space­port.
