Every New Mexican has a story of how and why they came to this beautiful state.
My family homesteaded in House, New Mexico in the 1890’s, then moved to Tucumcari in 1939 after the Great Depression. My dad moved to Las Cruces in the early 50’s to go to college. After college, he owned a Chevron Station on North Main and then opened AAMCO Transmissions on West Picacho in 1968 when I was 4 years old.
I grew up working for my dad throughout high school and college. I graduated from NMSU in 1986 with a degree in broadcast journalism. I worked in radio and television until 2000 when I moved back to Las Cruces to help my dad with the family business. When he retired in 2008, I bought the business from him.
There is a fiercely independent spirit that comes with being the descendant of Homesteaders.
There is a fiercely independent spirit that comes with being the descendant of Homesteaders. That independent spirit is what has prompted me to run for New Mexico House District 35. This spirit has fueled me in everything I have done in life. Join me in the fight to keep New Mexico beautiful, wild, and free.
