LETTER FROM 1NM's FOUNDER

Welcome to 1NM! What is 1NM?

Think of it as New Mexico's Idea Bank.

Here’s what I mean.

Too many of our leaders today see things with the same tired eyes and offer the same tired answers. The “solutions” they come up with are really just more of the same: Business as usual, status quo thinking.

We need new ideas. New energy. New solutions and new dreams we can aspire to and achieve.

I’ve spent a lifetime looking at problems in a different way. When you do that, you can find solutions that others don’t see. That’s why I like to say that New Mexico’s future is hiding in plain sight.  It’s right here! And it can be a great future!  You just have to know where to look. And how to look.

That’s why I am starting One New Mexico:  To get our best ideas out in the open where we can put them to work for New Mexico.

What works to build an economy that can actually lift families up? What works to create schools that don’t let our kids down? What new ideas will stop the arguing about what we don’t do well and start building on what makes us unique and really remarkable?

That’s what One New Mexico is about: Bringing together people and ideas for a better New Mexico.

Got a good idea? Put it in the 1NM Idea Bank.

Doing something that’s working? Let us know about it.

When the time is right, we’ll make a withdrawal—only what we’re taking out is so much more valuable than money. It’s a down payment on a better future for New Mexico.  

Add your voice, add your name, add your idea.

Because in the end, we’re One New Mexico.

ABOUT 1NM

The problem with New Mexico?

When was the last time you got into a conversation about all the exciting possibilities for our state’s future?

When was the last time you read an op-ed about jobs or schools or anything and said, “That’s what I was thinking!”

When was the last time you felt like the future was ours to grab onto if we’ll only seize it?

Been a while? There’s a reason for that.  The problem with New Mexico is we spend too much time talking about the problems in New Mexico—and far too little time seeing all the solutions that are right here in front of us.

That’s why we’re here. 

  • To advance a new economic strategy for New Mexico—a new vision for jobs and opportunity in our state.
  • To spotlight entrepreneurs and innovators who are already creating the future—people and ideas that can help us change New Mexico’s economic possibilities.
  • To champion innovative ideas that we need to try—and criticize outdated notions that we need to stop.
  • To connect concerned, committed New Mexicans in a statewide network to get things moving and get things done.
  • To create the future that’s waiting for us right here in New Mexico. If you only know where to look.
  • If that sounds good to you, then you’re in the right place.

You’re in New Mexico.  One New Mexico.
