From expanding statewide broadband to broadening opportunities for workforce training, to researching ways to reduce “cliff effects” for low-income families, New Mexico First continues to advance a robust platform of reforms. These priorities and more are based on citizen recommendations developed during the 2016 economy town hall. The event, held last May, was attended by over 200 people from throughout New Mexico, representing urban, rural, and tribal interests.
