Your State. Your Choice. You Decide NM. 2018-08-28T10:46:54+00:00

This questionnaire and website are administered by the New Mexico Pediatric Society (NMPS) and New Mexico Voices for Children (NMVC).

The following are answers to a series of questions posed by NMPS and NMVC  to the candidates for the offices of: New Mexico Governor, U.S. Senate (NM), U.S. House of Representatives (NM-1, NM-2, NM-3), and New Mexico Land Commissioner. The candidates are listed alphabetically within each race.

Both NMPS and NMVC are 501(c)3 nonpartisan nonprofit organizations, and, as such, neither support nor oppose candidates for public office. This questionnaire is intended to educate the public about the candidates’ views on a broad range of issues. We have not edited the candidates’ responses, except for minor typographical errors. The questionnaire does not serve as an endorsement of any kind.

We reached out to all of the candidates in these six races. All candidates in each race received the same questions and were given the same word limit (250 words for each question) and amount of time to return their answers. We also requested that each candidate send a photograph of themselves, and a short (150 words or less) biography, if they so desired. The candidates were contacted to confirm receipt of the questionnaire, and the deadline was extended twice to provide candidates with additional time to respond.

Mouse over each candidate’s picture to read their responses.
