Opinion: Letter to Rep. Ben Ray Lujan

Posted

To be blunt, I do not trust you to represent the people of New Mexico. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, in the 2018 election cycle you raised 1.3 million dollars from political action committees, $500,000 from large donors and only $89,000 from small contributors. This was for a campaign in which you did not even have to break a sweat. I fear that as a former chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee you are tied to the oligarchs and special interests that control the Democratic Party to the detriment of ordinary citizens.

If you want to regain my support, for starters join Rep. Deb Haaland in co-sponsoring House Joint Resolution 48 to overturn Citizens United. Then I want to see concrete proposals on how you would deal with: 1. the current climate emergency; 2. massive inequality and the destruction of the social safety net; and 3. campaign finance reform.
