Senator Liz Stefanics
A Champion for All of Us
As your State Senator, it’s been an honor and a privilege to work on behalf of our towns and rural communities. I’ve learned so much from all of you. Thank you for taking time to meet with me, sharing your concerns and ideas and allowing me to bring your voices to the legislature.
While we’ve accomplished much on behalf of our communities, we still have work to do. And I’m committed to continuing that work.
My father was a mechanic and is a 95 year-old disabled World War II veteran. My mother gave up her career to raise the children and take care of the home - she died at 95 years-old. They taught us all what hard work meant to succeed in this world. They taught us to take care of others, volunteer, and respect the elders in the community. I've carried these values with me to this day.
As the oldest, my parents could not afford to send me to college so I applied for grants, took out loans, and worked throughout college - to make it through a bachelor's, a master's, and a doctoral degree. My education focused on resources management, health care, and administration.
With the coronavirus pandemic, families in this district need better access to high quality and affordable healthcare. We need new jobs to help recover from this economic collapse. And we need to make sure senior citizens have access to the services they need.
I will fight to make sure these priorities become a reality for New Mexico’s families. From years of experience working in healthcare and social services to navigating complicated bureaucracies at the county, state, and federal level, I have a record of standing up to powerful interests, demanding accountability, and getting results.
I will be an advocate for all of us, so we can put New Mexico back on the path to prosperity.
I’m excited to meet you and talk more about your priorities.
I hope I can count on your support in November!
