Welcome friends,

Over the last 3 years, my team at your State Land Office has been working hard  – and we have accomplished a great deal.

A record $650 million for New Mexico’s schools, hospitals and universities in 2012 alone. Over 20 renewable energy projects in progress, expansion at the State Land Office’s project – the Sandia Science & Tech Park, and partnerships with responsible private industry from Hobbs to Gallup that have created thousands of good jobs. Guaranteed continued access to beloved public land at White Peak.

My team has cleaned up the Land Office and made it a productive, trusted guardian for public lands. We have an incredible opportunity to continue growing.  I’m running for a second term as your Land Commissioner because I believe more than ever that if we take care of the land, the land will take care of us.

I’ve got a vision for the future of the Trust that will generate more money for our children’s schools, create badly-needed jobs, protect our access to and the health of the lands we love, and make New Mexico a leader in wind, solar, and geothermal energy.

I need, and I hope I can count on, your support.

This website exists as a space for you to find out more, not just about the work we’ve done in our first term, but our vision for the next four years.

It is an honor serving as your Land Commissioner. We have cleaned up many problems, and we’ve still have work to do.

So while you’re here, please consider signing up to volunteer and making a contribution. There are more than 13 million acres of State Trust Land, and we need your help to safeguard the trust for future generations!
