In the aforementioned article it is written that I “explained that one of [my] neighbors damaged a drainage pipe while performing maintenance work in his yard, he did not ask permission from the city to make any changes to the pipe prior to the incident.  After that happened, [I]...

Response to ‘Thoughts on Trump’ Gallup Sun, Sept. 27

E-mail Print PDF
The visit to New Mexico by Donald Trump on September 16, 2019, did not inspire hope or excitement. New Mexico has been fortunate to be considered a “Blue” State for many reasons, foremost is the fact that we are a State of diversity and inclusion, contrary to the Doctrine of Trump “MAGA” that promotes racism, hatred, division and violence.

The actions of the Republican GOP, scripted and rehearsed with their false patriotism, fake morality, serious lack of professional ethics, collaboration with America’s historical enemies and scandalous corruption are acceptable to them. And no wonder, Donald Trump’s Zero Tolerance Immigration Policy has over 52,000 Immigrant Children in...

Governor’s Medicaid plan means better healthcare for McKinley County

New Mexico currently has a shortage of physicians in 32 of its 33 counties. Large swaths of McKinley County lie within the Navajo Nation, the largest Indian reservation in the United States. Nearly 80 percent of McKinley County’s 75,000 residents are Native American. New Mexico leads all other states in Medicaid enrollment, with 43 percent of its residents on the program.

The goal of New Mexico’s healthcare community is to bridge the gap in rural health and ensure adequate and appropriate care is available to all New Mexican’s regardless of their address.   Therefore, I support Governor Grisham’s plan to increase Medicaid by $78.5 million for the State of New Mexico.

Letter to the editor: Thoughts on Trump

E-mail Print PDF
Love the man or hate the man, Donald Trump’s message to New Mexicans did inspire hope and excitement for our state’s future. Will we see the state turn Red in the next election? Maybe; Only time will tell. I want to express a few thoughts with you before I dive into, the experience of seeing a sitting president in my state, from 20 feet away.

This piece is a perspective piece, that I feel needs to be written out and put out there for consideration. Right now, I will tell you, trying to persuade someone to one side or the other on the political spectrum will not work.  We are all complex beings with emotions and ideas that are all completely our own. Accepting each other’s ideas...
