2021 constituent survey rd

Thank you for the opportunity to continue to be your voice in the New Mexico House of Representatives.
The Legislative Session begins in less than a week. As I prepare, I am reaching out to constituents in an effort to better understand the needs of our district, and to connect with residents who I may not have had the chance to interact with.

Given, the unique environment of both our state and the legislative session, I hope you will take a few minutes to fill out this survey and share your perspective on issues that are important to you. Feel free to skip questions if you prefer - whatever you have time and inclination to share will be useful. Additionally, all responses and information provided will remain confidential.

Please feel free to share this survey with family and friends. I look forward to hearing from you.

Take the Survey!
