Romero will challenge incumbent Carl Trujillo in the Democratic Primary 

SANTA FE – Andrea Romero, the director of the Regional Coalition of LANL Communities, and an entrepreneur with deep roots in northern New Mexico has announced her candidacy for New Mexico State House District 46. Romero will challenge incumbent Carl Trujillo in the June 5, 2018 Democratic Primary.

“Northern New Mexico is my heart and home. I am running because we need a leader who can bring people together to solve our most serious challenges. I care deeply about the people in this area and am ready to work with everyone to address the lack of good paying jobs, the opioid crisis, and how we come together to resolve our serious water issues.”

“I am concerned that Carl Trujillo is dividing our community and working on behalf of special interests involving utilities, oil and gas, and insurance companies who put their bottom line over our community’s well-being.”
