KOB TV Channel 4’s Chris Ramirez recently sat down with CD 1 Congressional candidate Melanie Stansbury. Interestingly enough she says that turning around New Mexico’s economy is a top priority. Set aside what she can do about this issue, it is hard to square her economic concerns with her votes in the New Mexico Legislature.
See the postcards below, but note that she voted for a major tax hike (HB 6) in 2019 and three times in 2021 including TWICE for a tax hike on health insurance in 2021: HB 122 and SB 317 and HB 291 which would have raised income taxes and allowed for massive property tax hikes.

Truth be told, our DC representatives rarely do very little to enhance our economy, except for funneling federal $$ to us, which do not benefit the average citizen. Truly sad that one single party has, as its goal, to keep New Mexicans poor. What is there to gain? Control of the masses by keeping people unskilled and uneducated.
