Yvette Herrell, who is running for the New Mexico congressional District 2 House seat, spoke to the Beat recently.
When asked what was the first thing she would tackle, if elected to Congress, Herrell said: "There are so many important things to do for the second congressional district. We must safely start up the economy again. We must push the tools that our small businesses need; for example, continue to expand tax cuts and continue to cut overburdensome regulations. I personally would like to see the Wilderness Study Areas removed, so that our ranchers would have access to the land for grazing. But what we need to be doing is allowing our small businesses to open their doors getting people back to work, to increase our oil and gas production which would push the unemployment rate down. Government should allow businesses to make their own decisions for their customers and communities.
