Message from Democratic Party of New Mexico

From: Sean Ward

Hey team,

I’m at the DNC meeting in Philadelphia learning, listening, and proudly representing New Mexico. As many of you know, I’ve done a lot of election work in Pennsylvania. It’s an honor to be back here working on behalf of my home state. 

This is the first DNC meeting since the election. I cannot tell you how many people come up to the New Mexico delegation to thank us for our tremendous work in 2022. People thank me for flipping CD02 as soon as I mention where I’m from. I want to relay that to you all, the people who put in the hard work and continue to do so. The roles we play aren’t glamorous but we shape our country by being the boots on the ground.

Two quick things.

Help with the state of the union address 

I am hoping you all might be able to help me on something. We would like to highlight the work President Biden has done on capping the price of insulin. I am searching for someone who can share their personal story. If you have someone who can help speak to this issue, please email me. sean@nmdemocrats.org

The Democratic Party of New Mexico believes in building from the ground up and bringing in new voices. We want to live that motto. We are offering to pay for 1000 texts in each county to build for your county party meetings.
