We, the Central New Mexico Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America, have chosen to endorse Dr. Peter DeBenedittis for Governor of New Mexico in the 2018 Gubernatorial race. His People First Platform is progressive and far-reaching: establishing single-payer healthcare and a publicly owned state bank are transformative reforms that will benefit all New Mexicans, including and especially the most marginalized among us. Furthermore, we support his plans for living wages for the poor and working class, a cleaner environment through renewable energy, and statewide early childhood education.
Through his actions and words, Dr. DeBenedittis has also convinced us that this is a campaign for the people and by the people. He has consistently proven to be open and willing to learn from his constituents about how best to represent ALL New Mexicans. He has committed to not taking any corporate campaign donations and to ensuring his campaign is as transparent as possible. He understands the odds he’s up against, but he’s running to win, and our chapter will fight right alongside him for a better New Mexico.
The Democratic Socialists of America are committed to economic, social, and environmental justice for all, and we know Dr. DeBenedittis and his campaign will work tirelessly to advance these goals. Dr. DeBenedittis has our endorsement and our support; now let’s work together to build a better future for us all.
