Albuquerque, NM – Today, Albuquerque attorney and business owner Michael E. Hendricks announced his intentions to seek the Republican nomination for State House District 20. In the highly competitive SE Albuquerque house seat, Hendricks will face incumbent and freshman Representative Abbas Akhil. Hendricks had this to say about the announcement:
“New Mexico is in crisis. We are witnessing a public education system that is failing our children, a stagnant Albuquerque economy, and a staggering lack of leadership. My wife Jodi and I are raising our kids in the community and state we love, but without opportunities for them after they graduate, we worry about them leaving. There is so much potential in our state, but a lack of leadership and representation in Santa Fe has left us wondering, what’s next?
“There is a path forward. We have to take back control of our destiny and stand for the future that we and our kids deserve. From reforming public education to putting people before special interests, we have work to do and I am ready to start on day one. I ask that you join us in the campaign for the future of New Mexico and let’s take back control!”
Hendricks is a graduate of the University of New Mexico and is a practicing attorney in Albuquerque. After earning a BA, JD, and an MBA, Hendricks started his own law firm to effectively represent disenfranchised clients who feel that they don’t have access to the legal system. Hendricks is married to Jodi and they are raising their four kids in Albuquerque. Public service is a calling and he is dedicated to New Mexico and our future.
