Thirty day sessions are fast, daunting, and sometimes super frustrating, but it’s moments like these that really make it all so worth the hard work and long days and nights. New Mexico is where the atomic bomb was born, and tested—and it’s our people who were directly impacted, and yet have never been compensated. Never. […]
Here is the statement I read on the House Floor tonight, in support of HJR1, which allows New Mexico voters to vote yes or no on whether or not we tap into the Land Grant Permanent Fund for Early Childhood Education.
Tonight, the House of Representatives is debating HJR1 –if passed in the House and Senate, can send a constitutional amendment to New Mexico voters. This constitutional amendment would give voters an opportunity to vote on whether we should tap into the Land Grant Permanent Fund to invest in Early Childhood Education. I just got done […]
Budget vote is coming up in the next couple hours, and I am heading to the House floor now for the debate and the vote. Below the video update are the highlights. Public Education: HB2 increases FY21 General Fund appropriations for public education of $237.5 million, or 7.4% over the FY20 operating budget, with another […]
I had to bypass my ride today, and instead spending it in the snow with this one in Galisteo. With 22mi left to the State Capitol, I think I’m ok with this. Also, it’s confirmed. My dog, Lennon, es puro norteño.
After sleeping on it for most of the evening, and some this morning, and seeing that there was no room for me to ride on the shoulder of the highway because of the snow, I am having to hitch a ride and reroute from Vaughn to Moriarty, due to the weather. So far I’ve ridden […]
I made it to Vaughn! I also just got back from a short visit with Vaughn’s mayor, Roman Garcia and some very wonderful people who live in this community. There was some early laughs about me being from Lake Arthur, and our past rivalries, but all in all we discussed some of the issues that […]
“When asked whether she plans to ride by bike to Santa Fe for the next legislative session, Rubio said that she probably will. “I think every year I want to be inspired to ride to different parts of the state, because I just think it’s worth visiting and seeing what the rest of the state […]
I’m super lucky to have been born and raised in the Pecos Valley in southeastern New Mexico. I’m also super lucky to represent the 2nd largest city in the entire state of New Mexico in the New Mexico State Legislature. A couple of times today I was asked about the urban/rural divide. When I decided […]
I left Ruidoso early this morning, to arrive in Roswell four hours later. Thank you tail wind! Having been born and raised in this country, it was exhilarating fo come back home and experience it all by bike. I’ve got a full day tomorrow with Rep. Greg Nibert. Grateful for his and the community’s hospitality. […]
Rubio’s Ride Day 2 of 7: Today I climbed 3600ft, and descended (eventually) into Ruidoso. It was one of the toughest rides yet. But as cars and trucks whizzed by me, I wondered a lot about their stories, what their Sunday was looking like for them. Were they traveling? Running late for mass? Heading to […]
Today I left Las Cruces, on my 413mi bicycle quest to our State Capitol. I had a wonderful send off with family and friends in district 35, an overwhelming and emotional one to say the least. As I arrived in Alamogordo after 65mi, riding along highway 70–and surrounded by our beautiful land and some amazing […]
On the night before I set off on my bicycle for the last 22mi to the State Capitol, I’m reminiscing on the last six days. And the morning I left friends and family in Las Cruces. I was scrolling through my camera roll just now, and found this picture taken by a friend just as […]
