John Wertheim for State Treasurer 2014

Let’s face it: times are tough in New Mexico. In the past year, we’re the only state that has experienced negative job growth in the Rocky Mountains. Worse yet, this year’s ‘sequester’ of federal money will cost an additional 20,000 New Mexicans their jobs, according to the Bureau of Business & Economic Research. Our state population is in a downward slope and recent data from the Annie E. Casey Foundation has ranked New Mexico as the worst state in the country for child welfare.

Enough is enough. It’s time to make things better.

A lifelong New Mexican with deep family roots, John Wertheim knows that New Mexico is a wonderful place to build a career, a family, and live a satisfying life. He believes that every New Mexican deserves the prosperity and stability that comes from hard work and economic opportunity, job creation, even if times are tough.

When you vote John Wertheim for State Treasurer of New Mexico, you are casting a vote for a progressive economic vision. John is committed to utilizing the full potential of the State Treasurer’s Office in order to promote economic change and growth in New Mexico.

John Wertheim will fight to invest New Mexico’s money in New Mexico’s people. It’s that simple.

A Progressive Vision for New Mexico

New Mexico cannot afford small thinking. While the rest of the country recovers from the Great Recession, New Mexicans are still struggling to make ends meet. With over two decades of professional and political experience, John Wertheim will take an innovative approach to the Office of the State Treasurer to bring economic growth back to New Mexico. He is committed to using his position to advocate for:

  • Job creation, so more New Mexicans can continue to stay in the Land of Enchantment to work and build a happy, prosperous life.
  • Security for state retirement funds, so public employees can retire with dignity.
  • Protection of public education funds, so New Mexico can attract and keep the inspiring minds that educate our youth.
  • Investment in small businesses, so the New Mexico economy can be more self-reliant by building New Mexico-owned companies.
  • State funds for infrastructure, so New Mexico can thrive with better roads, bridges, and transportation.

Influenced by his deep roots in the ranching community, John has spent most of his life lending a helping hand to his fellow New Mexicans. He is an accomplished attorney and distinguished leader. In addition to serving as the Chair of the Democratic Party of New Mexico, he was a Democratic nominee for the United States House of Representatives and also worked as a Corporate Finance Analyst at Alex.Brown & Sons, Incorporated – the very first investment bank in the United States that is now the US Investment Division of Deutsche Bank.

With professional experience and a personal commitment to New Mexico, John Wertheim will fight to make the most out of state funds to benefit the people who make New Mexico great.
