Welcome to the new online home of Hispanos Unidos. This is the beginning of major overhaul of our branding and online presence as we come up to the ten year anniversary of our founding.
The need for meaningful change in New Mexico has never been greater. Unfortunately, those who continue to stand in the way of progress by protecting the status quo continue to maintain control while our state's ranking hovers near the bottom when it comes to child well-being.
¡Ya basta! Enough is enough. So how can we unleash New Mexico's economic potential to benefit hardworking families across New Mexico? We have identified three general areas we believe can bring meaningful and measurable improvement to our state:
- A solid public school system that makes sure funding reaches the classroom and not bureaucrats and administrators. Since 1992 in New Mexico, per-student spending has risen by an astonishing 44% and teacher salaries have risen by 3%.
- Removing obstacles to employment and opportunity by ensuring economic freedom. In Colorado for example, they placed strict limits on government spending and taxation in its Constitution thanks to the Taxpayers Bill of Rights. The Albuquerque Journal has a good piece on some other policies that help explain why Denver is booming and Albuquerque is not.
- Holding public officials accountable to the people - not special interests. Some of the most powerful lobbyists in Santa Fe use taxpayer money to advocate for more taxpayer money.
New Mexicans are tired of the status quo, “business-as-usual” Santa Fe mentality. We are committed to making 2018 a pivotal year for the future of our great state. Join us as we fight for a more prosperous future that unleashes New Mexico's economic potential.
