Important Announcements


There are lights at the end of the tunnel!

By Alex Piland, Chair,

The first light was the decisive victory of U.S. Rep. Melanie Stansbury! We know that she will work hard not just for her constituents in CD1, but for all New Mexicans and Americans.

Kudos to her team for all of their hard work. A special shout-out to Vice Chair Isaac Chavez for organizing the volunteers and canvassers who dropped literature, made phone calls, texted, and donated to help elect Rep. Stansbury.

The next light is this Friday, June 4 at 11:30 am, our monthly First Friday event. We will meet in Rotary Park in the Town of Bernalillo, 370 Rotary Park Rd. Our guest speaker will be Public Regulation Commissioner Joseph Maestas. Bring a chair and your lunch. Since we will be outside, masks are optional, but always welcome.

Second Saturday will shine bright with another in-person gathering at M’Tucci’s on June 12 at 11:30 am. Our great State Auditor, Brian Colon, is our featured speaker! M’Tucci’s has created a special menu just for us, so you will not want to miss it.

Vice Chair Chavez and I have been to Cuba to visit strong Democrats to plan an event in August. All are welcome! Details to come. Of course, El Bruno’s is always a nice place to stop for some great New Mexican food, and the drive to Cuba is spectacular.

County Central Committee members will have the opportunity to review our new county party rules. Keep an eye out for more information in early July.

Our Communications Team has created some great resources for all of us on our DPSC website. This includes contact information for Ward Chairs and your Executive Committee.

You will also find information on other Democratic organizations and activities like the Placitas Dems and Friends and Sandoval County Indivisible that routinely have great speakers and events throughout the county.

You can find information about those groups on our website’s calendar. Be sure to regularly check our website for more information.

Miss Information – Unemployed People Want to Work, but Not for Poverty Wages

By Judy Gordon, DPSC Secretary Republicans and the media are quick to point the finger at expanded unemployment benefits for employers’ current hiring woes. The Albuquerque Journal asserted, “We’re competing with unemployment,” claiming that the $300 weekly supplemental unemployment benefit in the Covid-19 relief package is causing our current labor shortages. But the picture is …

Online Access Serves Public Interest, Keeps Politicians Accountable

Our New Mexico legislature made Zoom access available during their 2021 NM Legislative session.  I found this great because the public could so readily be part of the NM House and Senate committee hearings, and full House and Senate votes, and for me specifically on the dozen pieces of legislation that I was closely tracking. As a …
