Bernalillo County Democrats! Join me for my 2022 Campaign Kick-Off IN PERSON at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, July 29, at Tractor Brewing Company, 1800 Fourth St. NW! It will be so exciting to, once again, gather in person, so I can see your beautiful faces. I hope you’ll join me as I kick-off my re-election efforts to serve a third term in the NM House of Representatives. Serving the residents of NM House District 15 has been the honor of my lifetime, and I’ll need all of your help to continue making progress because there’s still a lot of work to do. I’ve been passionate about expanding access to mental health services, criminal justice reform, and transparency in government. I’m proud of the work we’ve done on court reform, protecting the confidentiality of crime victims, and increasing funding for sexual assault survivor services. This past session, we passed compassionate legislation with the Elizabeth Whitefield End-of-Life Options Act. We passed meaningful liquor law reform. And, we invested in our local small businesses. My district was held by a Republican for many years, and you can be certain they’ll find someone to run against me again. I’ll need all of your help to keep NMHD15 blue, so that we can continue passing legislation that supports New Mexico’s hard-working families. RSVP to Jill Meyers, jillrandi25@gmail.com, 505-610-8851. Sincerely, Day Hochman-Vigil
