Letter to the Editor: Experience Isn’t Everything

Several ads list Jim Hall’s experiences. It wrongly assumes that a man 31 years older than his opponent would be a better qualified legislator.

In fact, the New Mexico Legislature was set up as a citizen’s legislature. The intent was for people from all walks of life and occupations to represent our diverse population.

Stephanie Garcia Richard is intelligent, already respected in the legislature, endorsed by both U.S. senators, several current legislators and came within 190 votes of unseating 20-year incumbent Jeannette Wallace in 2010.

Following Hall’s logic, we should not hire young teachers, doctors or scientists because they cannot do the job.

I want someone representing District 43 for 20-30 years as Jeannette Wallace did. I want someone representing working people.

I want a representative who will use new ideas to help solve our state’s modern issues. I want Stephanie Garcia Richard to represent me.
