When you picture New Mexico, what do you see?

If you’ve been listening to the pundits…it’s probably not so good.

New Mexico has a problem…but it might not be what you think.

It’s that all we ever seem to do is talk about what’s wrong with our state, rather than what’s right with it.  We talk about our problems, but not the new and innovative ways we can solve them.   

If you’re sick of that, like I am, then I have good news. It’s called One New Mexico, and it’s launching today.

Here’s what we’re going to do:

Advance a new economic strategy for New Mexico—A strategy built from the grass-roots up instead of the top down, that uses New Mexico’s micro-economies as the building blocks of economic growth.

Spotlight entrepreneurs and innovators—We need new ideas to strengthen New Mexico’s future.  That’s something that so many of our political leaders and powerbrokers seem unable to come up with. But there are smart, innovative New Mexicans blazing new trails--we want you to know who they are and what they’re doing to make New Mexico a better place.  

Connect forward leaning New Mexicans –There are concerned, committed New Mexicans across the state who know just how much potential we have as a state.  Acting alone, they’re doing great things…but just think of what they could accomplish working together.  We’re going to connect them to each other in a statewide network to generate ideas, get things moving and get things done.

You see, I believe New Mexico’s future is hiding in plain sight.  There is so much more we can do, if only you know where to look.

So let’s start looking right here: One New Mexico.
