Times have been tough. We've gone through the worst economic recession since the great depression. Many families in my community have lost their jobs and their homes. I will work hard and support smart economic development strategies that will actually create jobs for our friends and neighbors, while supporting our local businesses.
That means supporting small business, workers, and families by:
* Leveling the playing field and closing loopholes for out of state corporations.
* Investing in job training programs and incentives to hire New Mexico graduates.
* A living wage for working families.
* I also support solutions to help keep families in their homes, like the Mortgage Fair Foreclosure Act.
