Javier’s Priorities in the State Legislature are to:
Build economic prosperity and opportunity by creating living-wage jobs in the green, technology, and knowledge-based sectors, leverage opportunities for small businesses and entrepreneurs through business incubators and tax incentives, and increase the minimum wage for working families.
Strengthen our public education systems by investing in quality early childhood education, increasing teacher pay, reducing class sizes, and creating alternative student assessments.
Increase access to affordable and quality health care, including mental and behavioral health services, for all New Mexicans by leveraging the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act with local resources and expand county level systems to reduce the affordability gap.
New Mexico can be a national leader in renewable energy production. We can no longer afford to rely on fossil fuels to meet our energy needs - the health of our economy and our planet depend on our unwavering commitment to develop clean and sustainable energy sources.
