New Mexico


New Mexico is the southwestern epicenter of culture, innovation, and opportunity. Before statehood, the New Mexican territory thrived on the industrializing infrastructure of theEl Camino Real de Tierra Adentro (North-South), Route 66 (East-West), and the railroad expansion creating some of our nation’s oldest cities. As a native New Mexican, the state’s history and development have positively impacted my family heritage reaching back four plus generations. I am passionate about creating holistic positive community development for all ages, genders, and races while addressing barriers towards upward advancement. For the Land of Enchantment, I am dedicated to working on our state’s most critical needs and tailoring a blueprint similar to the 1912 plan-of-action to make New Mexico the “Crossroads of Opportunity” that is welcome to all! We are a blessed state and culturally abundant. That is why I support and urge our community to consider the following issue areas as critical ingredients for making New Mexico a thriving environment.

Yours in Service,

Devont’e Kurt Watson
