- Los Alamos woman to lead coalition operations in county
ALBUQUERQUE — Heather Wilson, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, announced today that Los Alamos resident Francine J. Mendoza will lead Women for Heather in Los Alamos County.
Mendoza joins the statewide grassroots team and will lead the county’s efforts to elect the first female senator from New Mexico.
“This year we have a special opportunity to elect Heather Wilson as New Mexico’s first woman U.S. Senator,” Mendoza said. “Heather is the only pro-life candidate running for the U.S. Senate, and I know she will reflect my values when she is elected. She will also fight to create jobs here in New Mexico. And that is why I’m supporting Heather Wilson to be our next U.S. Senator.”
“I’m happy that Francine has joined our campaign to elect the first woman senator from New Mexico,” Wilson said. “The extreme policies coming out of Washington have made things harder and more expensive for New Mexico women. Too many of us are getting by, but not getting on. It’s time to change direction.”
Mendoza has a degree in secondary education and social studies. She served as a teacher in Tallahassee, Fla., while raising her three children.
In 1995, Mendoza became a realtor and broker in Los Alamos. She is a long-standing member of the Los Alamos Republican Women.
Mendoza has also served as a county and state delegate for the Republican Party.
