State Rep. Christine Chandler (D) has received the endorsement of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees Union (AFSCME) Council 18, representing New Mexico’s public employees, in her reelection campaign.
“I am so grateful for the support of AFSCME Council 18 and its members. I am also incredibly thankful for the work they do for our community and the entire state every day. Whether it’s helping New Mexicans access financial assistance, delivering meals to seniors, providing clean water, or managing our trash and waste systems, AFSCME’s members keep New Mexico running,” said Representative Chandler. “The COVID-19 crisis has brought their important work so clearly to light, and when the worst has passed, we must continue to support New Mexico’s essential workers.”
Representative Chandler is running for re-election to ensure that New Mexico pursues a responsible COVID-19 recovery plan that protects the health and long-term finances of the state and that prioritizes support for the businesses and workers most affected by the downturn. She intends to continue advocating for public education, parental and medical leave, and fair treatment of workers and economic diversification efforts.
Representative Chandler has completed her first term representing House District 43 in Los Alamos, Rio Arriba, Sandoval, and Santa Fe counties. She is a member of the House Judiciary and Taxation & Revenue committees.
