I support Pete Sheehey as the best candidate to serve District 43 in the State Legislature. A person in public office must enter the decision-making process with not only personal values and a commitment to those values, but the ability to make policy that represents both the District and the Big Picture.
For many years, Pete has been showing up at meetings, marches and community events. He pays attention and asks the right questions to inform his decisions. He studies the issues. Pete has traveled this diverse District, visiting multiple communities to talk to people and hear their concerns, hopes and expectations for their Representative.
Pete values education as the key to fulfillment for both the individual and the community, as evidenced by his endorsements from the education unions AFT-NM and NEA-NM. His leadership and effective activism in promoting environmental protection earned him the endorsement of the Sierra Club, Rio Grande Chapter. He not only cares, but his scientific background gives him the capability to propose solutions to the multiple, sometimes critical problems that face our State.
Pete will be an effective advocate for the needs of the greater and diverse community that is District 43. Pete’s activism after thorough analysis and collaboration is what we need in government.
