State of New Mexico secondary Archives: on Families & Children

Jennifer Ferguson: Wants families represented by those not in the oligarchy

My experience working with families and family court and having to make decisions that impact the lives of many over 25 years, I understand the necessity to dig deeper than surface to obtain information and answers, I also know the importance of collaboration and working as a team. America needs representation for the people who are not part of the oligarchy. We need people who understand business and how every decision the U.S. Senate makes will impact all of America for generations to come.

Jeff Apodaca: New jobs must come with sick leave & child care

When we invest in New Mexico we know we can create 225,000 new jobs--a job for every New Mexican who needs one. But we cannot leave anyone behind. That's why we're going to support drivers of our economy--women, the middle-class and millennials--with equal pay, a living wage, earned sick leave, child care, and investments in the sharing economy that allow thousands of New Mexicans to earn extra income.

Mick Rich: Vote for opportunities to build jobs and help families

After working to build communities in New Mexico for 35 years, construction contractor Mick Rich believes there's less opportunities for residents of the state. Rich said he is tired of career politicians voting against opportunities for hardworking New Mexican families. He said he wants to fight for New Mexico residents who want to make an honest living in order for families to provide for their children.

Susana Martinez: Each image of child porn should count as its own crime

Those who possess child pornography should face the full weight and serious force of the law. But that's not happening in New Mexico because our Supreme Court ruled that prosecutors no longer have the option to charge someone in possession of child pornography with multiple counts based on the number of images they have. They said our laws aren't clear enough to allow that, and rather than clarify it, some in the Legislature have refused to act. We must close the child pornography loophole.

John Kerry: Fund Head Start to leave no child behind

We need to guarantee that our children are not made the abused of political slogans, Leave No Child Behind. You have to fund education, and you have to guarantee that we’re not content to just spend $50,000 a year on prison. Head Start needs full funding, children need to be funded in this country.
