On Saturday, April 6, 2019, I was elected Chair of the Democratic Party of Bernalillo County alongside Manny Crespin as 1st Vice Chair and Meta Hirschl as 2nd Vice Chair. I am humbled and honored by the outpouring of support I received leading up to and since the election. The work ahead of us is important. 2020 is coming and we must organize and mobilize to keep New Mexico blue and to create the deep sense of community that fosters inclusion in our political system. Our work to this end has begun and in the coming days you will hear more about next steps in this process.
Meta, Manny and I realize that we are building on a foundation that was laid by others who have been doing this work for years. We hope you will join us in celebrating two of those special workers who have given themselves fully to the Democratic Party of Bernailillo County. On Thursday, April 18, from 6-8 pm, we will host a community potluck and celebration of Bill and Millie Peifer. The location is yet to be determined. Please the BernalilloDems.org website for updates.
I am grateful to work alongside you on this journey.
I truly believe that New Mexico can be a beacon of hope for the change we desire. We are building the bridge to an inclusive democracy while crossing it.
