Get Out The Vote, New Mexico! Early voting is underway for municipal elections all over the state, with Election Day on Tuesday, March 1. NMBC encourages voters to tune in and get informed about the candidates and issues in their area. Voting in support of pro-business candidates rather than a partisan agenda will improve New Mexico’s economy and —every vote counts!

While the number of municipal elections are too numerous to detail every race and issue, HERE is a starting point for information on municipal elections.

Two pro-business candidates who took the time to send NMBC details on their races are:

Village of Los Ranchos de Albuquerque, Trustee – The incumbent Trustee, Mary Homan, is seeking re-election. Mary says, “NM can achieve so much more that it has to date but many businesses need mentoring to grow. We need to attract new business and industry to relocate to NM by highlighting our broad array of resources. NM needs the jobs for its citizens…..and I want to be a part of the support and attraction mechanism that makes it happen.”

Elephant Butte City Council – Candidate Johanna Tighe is seeking a seat on City Council. Johanna says her first concerns as a Councilor would be an “assessment of staff turnover at City Hall, development of year round employment and business planned growth.”

The NMBC knows Mary Homan and Johanna Tighe to be pro-business leaders. Both candidates are business owners who have indicated a strong desire to move government out of the way to allow private sector growth and business development in their communities.
