Counting Every Vote Strengthens Our Democracy

Albuquerque —New Mexicans voted at near-historic levels to send a clear message in support of a Biden/Harris administration leading our country. Their winning message of hope over fear, rights for working Americans, strong systems of public education from early through higher education, access to high-quality healthcare, and respect for our democratic institutions helped usher in wins across the country and also in New Mexico.

We offer our heartfelt congratulations to each of the AFT New Mexico-endorsed candidates who were successful in their individual elections, including U.S. Senator-elect Ben Ray Luján, D-N.M., Congresswoman Deb...

Challengers from each political party are allowed by law to observe on a limited basis the “behind the scenes” of the voting process. The infrastructure and effort that is involved is substantial and was an eye-opener for me. Here are...

Letter to the editor: Taking on Rep. Lee Alcon

E-mail Print PDF
Well I think I got Representative Lee Alcon’s attention from the letter he wrote in the Cibola Citizen on 10-28-20.  Lee tells me I am wrong about him in my earlier letter.  Lee advised getting information about votes absentee was perfectly legal by NM law, unfortunately he failed to cite said law.

I have been asked by the Editor of the same paper to make sure I cite my comments with a link page when quoting other sources. I guess Representative Alcon is exempt from that.  I did find some of his other comments interesting about how one could pay for this information and remembered when I ran for Cibola County Probate Judge some years back I had to report all the money I got to the...
