New Mexico, we did it! On July 1st we will FULLY REOPEN, with all COVID-19 restrictions on commercial and day-to-day activity removed.

We have made incredible progress, and I’m proud of New Mexico. The simple fact is: We are beating this pandemic. The best is yet to come.

Before his name became a hashtag, #GeorgeFloyd was a human being who mattered. A brother, a father, a friend. A person. I’m praying for his family today.

The 2021 Indigenous Youth Wellness Summit Logo ​was created by the Indigenous Youth Council (IYC) in collaboration with @haatzeedesigns artist Marcus Trujillo. ​After setting the theme "Community Resilience: Nurturing and Protecting Youth Wellness" ​to address the many challenges Tribal communities face during the COVID-19 pandemic, ​the Council wanted a logo that would resonate with Tribal youth and be representative of the 23 sovereign nations that the state of New Mexico resides upon. During a creative meeting with Marcus Trujillo and his keen artistic and cultural awareness skills, the IYC provided input from design inception to the color scheme in this collaborative effort. The Council members from the Mescalero Apache Tribe, the Jicarilla Apache Nation, the ​nineteen Pueblos, and the Navajo Nation had a vision of symbols of resilience and growth. The final logo has elements of each Tribe's cultural representation in its design. #NewMexicoIYC

Tim Eichenberg and Brian Colon are in! Friends, I'm bowled over to have the support of our State Treasurer and our State Auditor. Both are great New Mexicans who know New Mexico well and know my Democratic values. "I've worked with Marty for nearly twenty years on issues ranging from community based concerns to issues of national importance. He's always been thoughtful, effective and impactful. I'm grateful that he's stepped up to serve as a voice for New Mexicans at the DNC Table. These are incredibly difficult times and if you agree with me that we must win the White House and keep New Mexico Blue, please join me in supporting Marty Chavez for DNC Committeeman." - Brian Colon, New Mexico State Auditor "I've known Marty Chavez most of my life. I've seen his commitment to change and know personally his ability to get things done. No-one running for this position has a record of accomplishment like Marty. Whether it's early voting laws passed as a State Senator or his transformation of our largest City during his tenure as Mayor, Marty doesn't give up until the challenge is complete. He is a nationally respected figure among mayors, climate change and Latino Civil Rights activists. New Mexico will be lucky to have Marty Chavez as our DNC Committeeman and I'm happy to support him. I hope you will too." - Tim Eichenberg, New Mexico State Treasurer Please join us Saturday at Buffalo Thunder as we work to unite our great Democratic Party, cleanse our White House and Keep New Mexico Blue! - Marty Twitter Facebook Website Copyright © 2020 Marty Chavez for Committeeman, All rights reserved.
MY THREE FAMILIES 12 STEP LIFE, LIBERTY AND PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS PLATFORM. Are you satisfied with the elected politicians at the local, state and federal level? We must make a choice in November to rehire or fire them. The politicians will have to accept all or most of our 12 platform demands to earn our vote. 1. In 1776 America was founded. One hundred and eighty-seven (187) years later in 1963, Congress passed the Equal Pay Act for women. Fifty-five (55) years later in 2018 we still need one more state to ratify it to become law. This is the 2017 pay chart. Today when a white man is paid $1.00. The white lady is paid 79 cents, black lady 60 cents and Hispanic lady 55 cents. Article 1 section 2 of the U.S. Constitution reads, a black male slave was only counted as 3/5 of a man. The extreme conservatives Supreme Court agreed. Ladies are you worth less than 75% of a man? Will you vote for anyone who treats you as a 2nd class citizen? 2. TRUMP’S tax cut is for the “rich only” and puts us over 10 trillion dollars in debt (a billion is equal to 1,000 million—a trillion is equal to 1,000 billion). It will save the TRUMP family over 1 billion dollars. How much did the tax cut save you? We need to repeal this law. 3. My N.C. 7th district congressman, David Rozier, voted 71 times to stop Obamacare which insured people with pre-existing conditions. Health care is a right. We need affordable health care plan for all. Bring back Obamacare and make the necessary improvements. 4. Too many of our tax dollars are being spent on charter schools that are for the select few. We must put that money back into our public schools and make every school a “great” school. We need more money for school buildings, supplies, teachers and bring back the thousands of enthusiastic teacher’s assistants who were fired to cut the school budgets. 5. The Immigration and Nationality Act was passed in 1952. Sixty-six (66) years later, 2018, we need comprehensive immigration reform. 6. Around 15% of students drop out of high school and less than 60% of high school graduates go on to college. The student that takes all required classes only and graduate with a C+ average is prepared to do little or nothing in the workforce. We need to reform education by bringing back “old -school hands- on” vocational education and life skills. Start civics 1 and 2 for all middle and high school students so they will have a basic knowledge of how local, state and federal governments operate. 7. No more career quid-pro-quo politicians playing musical chairs. We need term limits. 8. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are not qualified to work in our White House. We must prohibit politicians from hiring relatives, friends and other unqualified/dangerous people. Mandate their staff be diversified and require them to hold three Q&A town hall meetings each year. 9. Make race and s*x discrimination, gun control, opioid abuse, fracking, offshore drilling, clean air, water and mental health top priorities. 10. Bring 75% of our “battle-weary/over deployed” troops back home from the many wars we are currently engaged. Some 4,486 brave troops died in Iraq and some returned home to live the rest of their lives with serious physical and mental injuries. Vice-president, Dick Cheney’s company, Halliburton, made $39.5 billion during the Iraq war. We need to use some of those billion dollars to give our senior citizens at least a 25% increase in their “too small” social security checks, and free first-class health care and job training for all our veterans. In 1961 President Eisenhower warned us about the “Military Industrial Complex”. We did not listen, so now we can truthfully say in 2018 “the sun never sets on the U. S. Military”. 11. TRUMP’S wall will cost over 75 billion dollars to build and over 150 million dollars a year to maintain. The new leaders we elect on November 6th can create a Civilian Conservation Corps, job program, that would put our young and other unemployed people to work on repairing and building new roads, bridges, schools and other ancillary jobs. 12. Over two thousand years ago an honest tax collector named Zacchaeus said, (paraphrased) “If I have cheated any man, I will repay him fourfold”. Lock up the convicted politicians for a minimum of 4 years and make them pay back four times the amount of tax dollars they embezzled/ pocketed. I will vote for the most honest politician who will fight for the most items on my family’s list. Please make your platform list discuss and share it with your family and friends. My family will go “all-in” by registering, voting in every election and telling the politicians what our demands are. Will your family go “all-in”?? James J. Hankins is an Army veteran, retired vocational teacher, construction manager for YouthBuild Wilmington, past President of the New Hanover County Branch NAACP and author of the book “What We Blacks Need To Do”.
