New Mexico today is recognized as a national leader on action to improve early childhood health and education. Other states are taking notice and hope to learn from our strong model. I was proud to partner with Sec. Elizabeth Groginsky & Sen. Michael Padilla yesterday to impart our advice and experience to legislators from Oregon who want to create a similar state agency solely focused on the needs of the youngest children and their families. Thanks to the extraordinary leadership of Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and advocates in our Capitol, we are indeed improving the well-being of New Mexico children and families with the creation of the Early Childhood Education and Care Department.

This week local communities and small businesses from Taos to Silver City, from Española to Hobbs and everywhere in between are getting welcome federal funds to help pay for expenses incurred due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham recently announced that over $150 million in CARES Act grants are being distributed for a wide variety of needs across New Mexico including the purchase of personal protective, child care assistance, senior programs, sanitizing public spaces, grants to small businesses, and many more uses. We will continue to deliver whatever resources we have and can make available to help communities maintain essential services and respond to the public health emergency. Here’s a couple of representative stories today: http://scdailypress.com/site/2020/09/04/1-8m-in-govt-business-grants-awarded-here/ and https://www.lasvegasoptic.com/content/local-governments-receive-cares-act-funds

Thank you to everyone who participated last night in a virtual town hall meeting on the issue of evictions that are rising dramatically across the country, hosted by NMDWS Secretary Bill McCamley. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs during this COVID-19 pandemic, many of whom are now facing eviction because they cannot pay their rent or mortgage. This wave of evictions is surging because of the recent expiration of the federal moratorium on evictions that Congress had put in place, along with the $600-a-week supplemental unemployment benefit. It is unacceptable that people are being put into such a precarious, vulnerable situation through no fault of their own. We are doing everything we can at the State, along with great non-profit and other partners, to find solutions for families and individuals urgently.

So many New Mexico workers are struggling today to pay their bills and rent because of COVID-19. Over 175,000 New Mexicans have relied on the $600 a week in extra federal unemployment benefits for survival – a crucial economic lifeline. The GOP proposal to cut their unemployment benefits now by $400 a week is an outrage. In addition to slashing unemployment benefits for people who were laid off through no fault of their own, there's no plan for those who lost health insurance that was tied to their job, no extension of the federal moratorium on evictions, nothing for hazard pay for essential workers, and no safety protections for workers.

Since COVID-19 first reached New Mexico and began to impact our communities, I’ve been working across the aisle to find bipartisan solutions that get our towns, cities, and counties the resources they need. We must work together to stop the spread of COVID-19 and safely re-open our economy.

On this day when we say goodbye to a real American hero, Congressman John Lewis, I was honored to speak to the NAACP of Doña Ana County during a good discussion of the extraordinary challenges facing our state right now, and our country. Let’s all be aware that COVID-19 has hit communities of color - Black, Hispanic and Native American - disproportionately hard; they are catching and dying of the virus at much higher rates than all other racial and ethnic groups. To get this pandemic under control, we must make ending these steep health disparities our priority. The role of the federal government will be key, and we are committed to it. I am grateful to Doña Ana County Branch President Bobbie Green and the entire NAACP for its leadership for more equality and justice in New Mexico and across America.

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 sex 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”.
