The Trump Presidency has become an assault on the health of our working families. It is morally bankrupt to take money from children, the elderly, the disabled, Planned Parenthood and those who have been left behind to give tax cuts to the wealthy. This not only affects our health but it will eliminate jobs in New Mexico. I will fight until all of us have access to affordable healthcare.
As a military reservist and a former US Attorney, I know we need to protect our country from foreign threats and our families from violent crime while respecting our civil rights. I have seen firsthand the damage sexual assault has on families, the impact opioid abuse has on our community and the hardships placed on the men and women who have been deployed. Fighting for them will be a priority.
New Mexico’s children need a path that leads to a good job, and this starts with a quality education. Improving education will allow us to grow our economy, compete for the jobs of tomorrow and give students the opportunity to stay and work in New Mexico if they choose. To do this, we need to protect public school funding so all of our students can get a quality education.
"Martinez’s experience, background and courage to do the right thing regardless of the potential political implications make him the right choice in this race."Albuquerque Journal Editorial Board,
"One solution is to ensure women have more opportunities to make the gains that have been denied them for too long. But men cannot be let off the hook. We cannot just throw up our hands, close our mouths and take the easy way out. Being an ally means lending your voice to the struggle for equality, not silencing it."Damon Martinez,

"New Mexicans owe Martinez a debt of gratitude for his accomplishments toward making this a safer place to live. We wish him luck in his future endeavors which, we hope, will keep him in his home state."Albuquerque Journal Editorial Board,
