The Valencia County Democratic Message

Who you vote for makes a difference. Elections count and government does matter! Democrats have always stood for the idea that wealth and status should not be an entitlement to rule. As Democrats we realize that our country and our economy are strongest when there is opportunity for all. Historically Democrats have and will continue to fight for everyday New Mexicans. Democrats oppose balancing the budget on the backs of our working families, our poor and our elderly. Democrats will fight for jobs, a living wage and decent working conditions. Democrats will lead the way to affordable healthcare and a quality education for our children. Democrats will stand up for equality and justice for all New Mexicans. Democrats understand the unique beauty of our state and they will work to protect our most precious resources. Democrats, now more than ever, must stand together and rally around our shared priorities. As Democrats we recognize that each of us has an obligation to each other, to our neighbors and to our communities. We believe that government can be a force for good and a source of hope.
