About the DPBC

The Democratic Party of Bernalillo County is an organization passionately focused on building a coalition of people with common values and with the power to elect candidates who share our beliefs and policy goals.

We do this entirely on the work of volunteers. No one — from our leadership to our tech and website gurus to our on-the-ground canvassers — is paid, meaning that every monetary donation goes directly to support our mission and our work.

This is truly a community-led effort. 

We’re uniting communities. We’re building Democratic power. And though our work may not always be easy, when we do it together, it’s a beautiful thing.

The 56th Legislature Begins

By Jennie Lusk

Democrats can make all the difference to New Mexicans by the March 18 closing of the first session of the 56th legislature.

The governor’s proposed executive budget recommends appropriations of $9.4 billion—an increase of 11.9% in state spending, and reserves 34% of income The full details of the FY24 Executive Budget Recommendation are available here.

The Legislative Finance Committee (LFC) also presents a budget for appropriations. LFC recommends a $9.44 billion, or 12%, increase and sets reserves at 30%. The LFC report is available here: https://www.nmlegis.gov/Entity/LFC/Documents/Session_Publications/Budget_Recommendations/2024RecommendVoI.pdf

By the close of the session, the outcome is expected to compromise between the executive and legislative branches.

Democrats dominate at the legislature, in both the Senate and the House of Representatives. With historic levels of money available for legislators to appropriate, New Mexico can fund both systemic change and initiatives already underway through Democratic leadership on the floor of the roundhouse, the 4th floor governor’s office, and every single statewide elected office—attorney general, secretary of state, land commissioner, auditor, and treasurer.
