Friday evening, brave and bold men and woman entered the KIVA to talk about their work to save the Land of Enchantment from “progressivism.”

 

The Piñon Post’s John Block stopped by first, to provide updates on how “leaders” in Santa Fe dithered while “violent anarchists” toppled a “historic monument in the heart” of New Mexico’s capital. But it’s worse than that, he noted — in a crime unreported by the press, a “cross … built to honor the legacy of 21 Franciscan friars who were brutally murdered during Popé’s rebellion” was “desecrated, with the words ‘LAND BACK’ emblazoned with spray paint on the stone next to the cross.”

 

John went on to explain why Michelle Lujan Grisham’s “fear-mongering about safety concerns regarding in-person voting,” is deeply dishonest. Even members of the governor’s own party –e.g., Maggie Toulouse Oliver and Linda Stover — have admitted that the process poses little or no risk.

 

Stefani Lord hopes voters in her district turn out in force on Election Day. Running for the New Mexico House, she’s a tireless Second Amendment activist. Technically, her opponent is far-left activist Jessica Velasquez, but Stefani told Eddy Aragon that she is “literally running against Michael Bloomberg.” District 22 voters would be wise to cast their votes for someone who will “represent the people and work hard to make New Mexico an even better place to live” — not a mouthpiece for a faraway billionaire.

 

Running for reelection, Jay Block had breaking news for KIVA listeners: Sandoval County has fired an employee for illicit campaign activities. Chief Deputy Clerk Anne Brady-Romero — who believe it or not, is seeking to become the county’s top election official — was terminated for politicking “while on county time and on county property after an in-depth investigation.” Jay thinks she has “lost her credibility and trust with the voters,” and should drop out of the race. Meanwhile, he’s battling his opponent’s “radical agenda,” which “does not fit” Sandoval County’s values. From backing the blue to opposing the governor’s irrational lockdown policies, there are “vast differences” between the incumbent and his challenger. District 2 voters, the choice couldn’t be clearer.

 

Wrapping up the evening, Joshua A. Sanchez, a family man and small business owner specializing in “excavation and dirt work and demolition,” spoke about New Mexico Senate District 30’s need for “jobs, jobs, jobs.” Ali Ennenga, running for House District 15, explained how her background as a paralegal, teacher, and entrepreneur makes her uniquely qualified to improve public policy in New Mexico. And Michael Hendricks detailed how, as a representative for New Mexico House District 20, he would address the state’s challenges on crime and education, as well as the budget deficit.

 

Keep doing what you’re doing, New Mexico, and you’ll keep getting what you’re getting — last, or very close to last, in just about every category of socioeconomic health. Fortunately, there are people working overtime to change our state. They deserve your support.
