I’m looking out at the deer tracks in the snow, and grateful for a beautiful snowy Sunday morning with my family! This is a quiet period of the campaign, as we prepare for forums in January, and the final activities that lead up to the March election. We will be back out in the neighborhoods in January and February talking to residents, and we have a children’s book swap/book reading coming up in January as a fun event to benefit our local kids!
As a member of the Mayor’s Occupancy Tax Advisory Board for the past five years, I have helped implement positive change in the City’s grant application process and new initiatives for creating community events in Santa Fe that target a national audience. I have served four years as a grant panelist for the State Arts Commission, and am past President of ArtSmart, and an Executive Board Member of the Canyon Road Merchants Association and was part of a core group that created two new annual events for Canyon Road, and the founder of the annual Make Music Santa Fe. I have also served on Tourism Committees/Focus Groups for the City of Santa Fe, aimed at bringing business and new revenue to Santa Fe.
As a business and property owner, and proud mother of a ten year old that is a student in our public schools, I have also advocated publicly, and participated in fundraising efforts, for our schools, including getting additional funding for music and art programs for students, particularly the underserved children of our community. I support local efforts that include food donations for the Food Depot and the Interfaith Homeless Shelter, and through my business make many in kind and monetary donations to local organizations as part of an ongoing effort to help others.
Please contribute whatever you can afford to my campaign, so that I may continue to serve Santa Fe in an even greater capacity, as a public servant.
We are gathering donations to assist with the campaign expenses; it’s a grassroots effort and the bulk of the effort is getting out and talking to people, but we do have to get yardsigns and do a few mailouts, which is what we need help with, and I will be so thankful for your help.
Your donation will make a difference, and is so appreciated!
