NM Legislature News:

SANTA FE – Speaker of the House of Representatives Brian Egolf (D-Santa Fe) has been selected for the national Aspen Institute-Rodel Fellowship in Public Leadership.

The program will bring together elected officials who have shown exceptional leadership and the ability to work across party lines.

Speaker Egolf was nominated for the Fellowship by Tobias Read, the State Treasurer of Oregon, and is one of only 24 elected political “rising stars” from around the country to be chosen.

“Speaker Egolf has been a long-time champion for New Mexico families,” Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said. “He leads the most diverse House of Representatives in our state’s history with strength, honesty, and a commitment to put the people of New Mexico ahead of any political ideology, and I congratulate Speaker Egolf on this important recognition.”

“It’s an honor to be selected as one of this year’s Fellows,” Speaker Egolf said. “I look forward to representing the great state of New Mexico, learning from colleagues across the country, and showing our nation that in New Mexico we work together, listen to each other, and lead with our values.”

According to the Aspen Institute, the process to identify the 24 Rodel Fellows entailed a year-long search for America’s emerging political leaders. The program seeks to uplift thoughtful and civil bipartisan dialogue and to explore the underlying values and principles of western democracy.

Former Aspen Institute Rodel Fellows include U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris and Mayor Julian Castro of San Antonio, Texas.
