I was raised in Tajique, NM, where I was able to live off of and with the land, water, flora, and fauna of our region. As a result, when I made the decision to run for New Mexico House District 22, I understood the need for a conscious water and land steward. Later, as a teen I discovered how the Sandia & Manzano mountains have, and continue to, house our community's livelihoods.
My family are generational lenlleros (wood haulers) who emulate good land & water stewardship. So, when people exclaim that 'water is life,' I take it very personally. As it is at the heart of my family’s morals and business to care for and protect our lands & water.
House District 22 and New Mexico are starved of water access and sustainability. In light of climate change and long-term water conservation, I commit to passing legislation that saves our water for future generations.
So, let's get to work electing a local candidate, we raised, with our values as a community. Count on me to be that public servant.
Vote to keep our representation how we like our pinto beans, homegrown.
My life is spent here in our East Mountain and Torrance County communities, living the issues we see. My childhood has brought me the understanding that we face mutual issues. These are issues that require comprehensive solutions and an understanding of the culture we enjoy and seek to preserve here in House District 22.
I am one of us, and with that comes the understanding that we need a Representative who is going to:
1) Expand our water sovereignty & equity
2) Invest in responsible economic development
3) Maintain and fix our infrastructure and roads
So, let's vote to make sure that we elect someone who understands our communities and our culture here in the East Mountains and Torrance County.
I, Augustine Montoya, am young, accountable, and tenacious.
Count on me to be our House District 22 Representative!
