Dear Editor:

There are several races in the 2018 New Mexico elections that are wide open. It offers us the opportunity to get our government back on track of providing service to improve the lives of the residents of New Mexico.

First, I want to state the obvious. We must change our dirty underwear. That, being the Republican Administration who has lowered the standard of our State and Country through bigotry and hatred. Frankly, I am embarrassed by the Republican Party’s racial demagoguery as their political strategy. As President Donald Trump promotes racial stereotypes, his fellow Republicans’ silence and defending him only discredit themselves. And it...

Following the production of Mud on September 9-11, this past summer, our team went immediately into an arduous schedule of post production editing...

Working across party lines to address the dental care crisis

E-mail Print PDF
As elected officials, it is our duty to listen to our constituents about the problems they face and work together to look for common sense solutions. We need to work across the aisle to find creative and innovative ways to do what the people sent us to the Roundhouse to do.

One of the biggest problems facing New Mexicans is a lack of access to dental care. It doesn’t matter if you live in a remote rural area or right in the middle of one of our cities, our dental care system isn’t getting people the care they need in a timely manner, if at all.
