SMARTER

My Three Sons in APS (Click on photo for video)

Good education. In order to obtain statehood, New Mexico  established a public education system. Free and accessible education makes democracy work for all. Athena has been a local educator, student, and parent. But, she also has experience in other states and systems. 

When her oldest son, Anthony, was in 3rd grade, in Florida, she discovered his class was not learning math.  Working with other parent volunteers, school administration, and an existing math curriculum, she led the Math Superstars program, school-wide, for 1st-5th grades during his last two years at the school.

Our schools need to be the best they can be and everyone needs to be a “forever learner.” We have to make sure all our students seek to attain their maximum potential AND offer that opportunity. Athena will bring educators, parents, and students together for a smarter New Mexico

SAFER

Now and into the 22nd Century. Common sense gun laws protect everyone’s rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We all want to feel safe in our communities. But what about the future? 

NM laid the groundwork with the Energy Transition Act in 2019 for part of the solution. It engaged community, utilities, and others to enact a planned  reduction of our greenhouse gas emissions across the state from electric generation. 

But we need to MAKE it happen and MANDATE more. Athena will bring her engineering mindset and mom’s determination to the senate floor for a safer New Mexico.

STRONGER

Diverse economy. Athena will take her experiences as a small business owner, start-up entrepreneur, and tech transfer expert to foster collaboration. She knows we have all the ingredients for a diverse economy: three National Labs, three top  universities, and outstanding regional career technical learning centers to develop burgeoning industries.

NM has the opportunity to be the hub of “Green-shoring.” Does our eager new generation see the opportunities? Athena will keep us focused on people, planet, and profit….for ALL.

NEW MEXICO

I love my adopted state!

Together, we can make the long lasting changes we need here.

Send me to Santa Fe to be YOUR voice and vote.

More from ASES Solar 2022. I am proud to be one of the past leaders of the NMSEA over the last half-century who have worked hard to bring clean energy to the state. A bright future is ahead for New Mexico!Last night at the NMSEA Banquet. 50 years of NMSEA presidents! The torch was passed to the new generation - new Co-presidents Nicole Olonovich & Mayane Barudin! Far right is Katie Stone who rocked as the MC! You can hear her today during a live recording of The Children's Hour at noon at the Solar Fiesta! and EV Show. ABQ Tim Keller also gave a rousing speech on the fast progress towards zero emissions!

Our senator is setting a great example!I am currently putting a 10kW array on my house with the help of one of our locally-owned solar installation companies.

This array will power my home, charge my car, and save me money on my monthly power bills.

Throughout my time serving in both the House and Senate, I have focused my attention on advancing investments in research, development, and the deployment of clean energy technologies.

There is no more urgent mission than transitioning to a 100% hydrocarbon-free power sector.
