As a lifelong New Mexican, Alexis understands just how important our agricultural community is to New Mexico’s future success. Alexis knows the rural lifestyle very well as she has worked on her family farm and ranch operations whether it is working with cattle, poultry, and building infrastructure. She is a strong supporter of New Mexico dairies, pecan farmers, cattle producers, and chile farm operations. She believes more can be done to support rural New Mexico farmers and to continue the traditional uses of the lands in New Mexico in and along the Rio Grande and Pecos Rivers as well as our acequias. Extreme federal overreach in regulating every aspect of the farm and ranch way of life does not contribute to prosperity in New Mexico but shutter generational farms and ranches by decreasing opportunity. She looks to create
opportunities and remove red-tape. As an environmental engineering professional, Alexis looksto promote environmental stewardship not environmental alarmism which, in the past, has closed the timber industry in northern New Mexico while creating fire hazards due to extremist government policies.
She will also be a champion for generational farming – making sure burdensome taxes and regulations are removed so that New Mexico farms continue to belong to New Mexico families – not the federal government.
