Here is how NMBC Candidate Job Interviews Work: Candidates for office will be interviewed on behalf of the “The Boss” (the New Mexican voter) at the NMBC BASH. Here are some the ground rules for the interviews. Candidates will not know what the questions are in advance, will be limited in time on their responses, can only talk about themselves and must answer the question that was asked. No debate, no one talking over anyone – only one candidate will be in the room at a time. This format means New Mexico voters will be able to hear where these candidates stand on several issues in just a few short minutes!

The ABQ BASH has limited seating, RSVP TODAY!
