Santa Fe New Mexican Endorses Pete Sheehey For House Seat

Pete Sheehey
Candidate for House Dist. 43


The Santa Fe New Mexican has endorsed Pete Sheehey for the New Mexico House of Representatives, District 43 Democratic Primary Election:

“Pete Sheehey brings the analytical mind of a scientist to the Legislature — in fact, we have endorsed him for this job before, back in 2010. He supported Bernie Sanders in 2016 and currently serves on the Los Alamos County Council. He also has shown the ability to bring diverse viewpoints together on the council, with its Democratic and Republican split. The winner of the Democratic primary has a GOP opponent in the fall. In House District 43, The New Mexican endorses Pete Sheehey.”

Sheehey stated: “I am honored to receive the endorsement of The New Mexican, recognizing my efforts to serve the interests of all the people of District 43. I have worked to be the most transparent, inclusive, well-informed, and responsive County Councilor I can be, and that is how I will continue to work as our State Representative.”

This endorsement is in addition to Sheehey’s endorsements by Conservation Voters New Mexico, the Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter, American Federation of Teachers–New Mexico and the National Education Association–New Mexico. Conservation Voters New Mexico’s press release (link) states:

“His support for renewable energy issues and understanding of water management and conservation put him well ahead of the rest of the candidates in the race. His record as a Los Alamos County Commissioner indicates a thoughtful and progressive approach to conservation issues. He will be an able and educated replacement for the outgoing Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard.”
