Would you vote for the creation of an Independent Ethics Commission to provide oversight of the executive and legislative branches of government in New Mexico? Yes

What measures would you take to make New Mexico state government transparent, accessible and accountable to the public? the governor's discretionary fun must be made public, especially to legislators

Would you give permission to the Legislative Council Service to make publicly available the final amounts you personally allocate to various capital outlay projects? Yes

If you think reform of the capital outlay system is needed, how would you reform it? If you don't think reform is needed, give us your reasons. Yes

Does New Mexico need to invest more in early childhood development? If you think it does, in your opinion what is the best way to invest? If you don't think New Mexico needs to invest more, tell us why. Yes. Education ages 0 to five years old is crucial. Details on how to do this are still to-be-determined. Bear with me, please.

What measures would you take to improve the state's long-term economy? Education. Tuition raises at CNM and UNM make it less accessible for many. Some good news...courses offered at CNM give background in film-making --- ideal for locals to land jobs with Hollywood film-makers right here in New Mexico.

Would you support the legalization of cannabis for adult recreational use in New Mexico? Why or why not? Yes, for medical use immediately. For recreational use, I want to study the experiences of states like Colorado before we jump in with both feet with regards to recreational use.
