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

these as­sets? Great cul­ture, great weather, great out­doors and in­cred­i­ble land­marks are what I con­sider New Mex­ico’s as­sets. The cul­ture in this state is deeply rooted and pre­dates the found­ing of this na­tion. It is a story that should be bet­ter told.

What do you con­sider to be the weak­nesses fac­ing New Mex­ico and how can we over­come these chal­lenges? I feel the big­gest chal­lenge fac­ing New Mex­ico is the lack of good, ex­cit­ing jobs. Our big­gest ex­port is our peo­ple. New Mex­ico needs to cre­ate an en­vi­ron­ment in which our youth are ex­cited about stay­ing and work­ing here. De­scribe your vi­sion for New Mex­ico in one sen­tence. New Mex­ico is the state of choice to set­tle in and raise your fam­ily be­cause it has ev­ery­thing one can want: a safe en­vi­ron­ment, great ed­u­ca­tion and some of the best out­door ex­pe­ri­ences to be had.
