Hello and Welcome!

I’m Laura Childress, candidate for New Mexico State Representative of District 56. I am an independent voice who prioritizes progress over partisanship. This isn’t just political jargon. I truly believe in being a representative of the people and not for my self-interest.

 

Many voters I meet with are ready for a change. They come from all political backgrounds and are fed up with the partisanship. They are ready for a representative who shows up, is open to multiple perspectives on issues, respects opposing viewpoints and finds common ground.

They want a representative of the people and for the people, who will always be accessible and engaged with their voters. Someone who will stay connected with voters through town halls, social media and newsletters. Equally important, someone who is transparent with voters in how and why they vote a certain way on issues impacting the citizens of District 56.

Not only will I serve as that independent voice for District 56, I pledge to always be available, accessible and approachable. If you call me, I will return your call. If you send me an email or message via social media, I will respond. This is your campaign, a campaign for the people.

I truly believe progress is achievable when we remain open to hearing all perspectives on issues, when we respect opposing viewpoints of ALL constituents and when we work together. It’s important now, more than ever, to work across party lines to best serve the citizens of Southeastern New Mexico, citizens who are all first class and second to none.

As your representative of District 56, I vow to vote with your best interest at heart because “People are at the heart of what we do.”

 A NEW VOICE ON THE HORIZON

COMMITTED TO OUR COMMUNITY. DEDICATED TO PROGRESS.

LAURA'S PLATFORM

WHERE I STAND ON THE ISSUES

ECONOMY & JOBS

“Just like many other small business owners in the state, my husband and I had to lay off employees and shut our business earlier this year.”

HEALTHCARE

"Having lived through a rare cancer diagnosis, I am passionate about providing quality healthcare and affordability to all New Mexicans."

EDUCATION

"New Mexico's ranking of 49th in the nation in education is simply unacceptable. I will work to propel forward massive reform that's long overdue."

MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

“New Mexico is still reeling from a behavioral health crisis. I will forge a path forward bringing help to those who need behavioral and mental health services.”

CHILD WELFARE

“It is my mission to advocate on behalf of children, a critical need in a state ranked last in the country in overall child well-being.” 

CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM 

”It’s time to take on Criminal Justice reform in New Mexico and find equitable solutions to problems that have plagued the state for decades.”
