Election Results: Good News for Health Security!
On Tuesday, the people of New Mexico elected a new governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, who has publicly expressed her support for the NM Health Security Act.
And our newly elected lieutenant governor, Howie Morales, has been a chief Senate sponsor of the Health Security Act (along with Sen. Carlos Cisneros) since 2015.
As for our state representatives, at least eight new members of the NM House of Representatives have been elected whom we believe are in favor of Health Security. This group includes a former member of the Health Security for New Mexicans Campaign's governing board, Dr. Bill Pratt (district 27)!
All of this means that we have support in high places. Clearly the time has come for Health Security!
January Coming Up Fast
With the elections over, there are only two more months until the 2019 legislative session begins.
Let's make them count!
What can you do?
Talk to friends, neighbors, coworkers, and family members about Health Security. It is so important to spread the word.
Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper stating why you support Health Security. (Click here for thoughts on points to make.)
Contact your newly elected (or reelected) representative. Congratulate them and ask them to help with passage of the Health Security Act in 2019. Ask your friends and coworkers to contact their representatives as well!
And don't forget your senators! It will take two houses to pass the Health Security Act.
With the elections behind us, now is the time to reach out to your elected representatives to tell them that you support Health Security, and to urge them to support it as well.
So let's keep pushing. We are sooooo close.
