Investing New Mexico’s Money in New Mexico’s People

John WertheimNew Mexicans are struggling.

While the rest of the country has begun to recover from the Great Recession, New Mexicans are still feeling the sting of budget cuts and paycheck-to-paycheck living. With low rankings in child welfare and jobs, many New Mexicans are leaving the Land of Enchantment to find jobs, build homes, and expand their families in other areas of the country.

This is unacceptable.

I’m John Wertheim and I’m running for New Mexico State Treasurer in 2014. As your New Mexico Treasurer, I will manage New Mexico’s money with integrity. I will fight to invest New Mexico’s money in New Mexico’s people, utilizing a progressive vision to fully realize the New Mexico State Treasurer’s potential to promote New Mexico’s economic development.

As the “banker” for the State of New Mexico, the Office of State Treasurer is directly involved in the management and investment of the state funds that sustain New Mexico’s economic heartbeat. Building on the foundation of integrity that our current treasurer James B Lewis established, I aim to raise the New Mexico Treasurer’s Office to the next level and use the position to promote economic growth in the Land of Enchantment.

Over 20 years ago, I started my first job fighting for progress as the New Mexico Director of Bill Clinton for President.  Back when he was still a little-known governor from Arkansas, I was captivated by the powerful message of his campaign: if you work hard and play by the rules, you should be able to succeed in America. I agreed with President Clinton on this point then and I agree with him now; I believe that every single person willing to work hard should have a chance to succeed.

Sadly, for many thousands of New Mexicans, President Clinton’s words do not reflect reality. That’s why I am running for New Mexico Treasurer. By utilizing the position of the Treasurer in a progressive way, I will fight for every New Mexican’s right to success and prosperity through hard work. I will invest New Mexico’s money in New Mexico’s people.

Please join me in my fight to exercise the full potential of this elected position and support economic growth in New Mexico. Get involved or make a donation today!

Some of us conservation-types get accused of being tree huggers, but I guess I'm more of a tree leaner. BTW the Treasurer's office is a great way to promote investment in renewables like wind and solar through the State Investment Council. Celebrate Earth Day! ... See MoreSee Less

Great day at the South Valley Economic Development Center for the grand opening of their new entrepreneurial co-working space. Investing in small business makes sense for New Mexico. Glad to support the SVEDC's work to grow business in our state! ... See MoreSee Less
