Howie Morales - New Mexico State Governor Race, 2014

Welcome, and thank you for visiting the site to learn more about me and my campaign to become our next Governor.

If you honor me with your vote, I will work my heart out every day that I am Governor to help us build a dynamic New Mexico future.

A future in which our economy is thriving with new opportunities – with every New Mexico entrepreneur having the best odds to build a successful business, with every New Mexico worker able to find a good job and to keep moving forward in life, enjoying better and better wages, and with every New Mexico family able to buy and keep their home and realize all the hopes and aspirations that we call the American dream.

A future in which our education system is serving every family well – with every New Mexico teacher respected and well-paid and free to teach a rich and comprehensive curriculum, with every New Mexico infant and toddler and pre-K child having access to high-quality whole-child education and care, with every New Mexico student reading and mastering knowledge, with every New Mexico youth envisioning and planning his or her future with confidence, and with every New Mexico high school graduate attending and excelling in a 4-year university, 2-year college, job training, or apprenticeship.

And a future in which we mitigate New Mexico's wildfire crisis and resolve New Mexico's water crisis by honoring the environment and our ancient traditions even as we seize the benefits of leading-edge 21st Century innovations.

We can't afford to stand still for four more years. Let's leave behind four years of stagnation and start building the dynamic future we all deserve. Partner with me, and let's realize our potential together as Team New Mexico and thrive and prosper together.

- Howie Morales
