The Democratic Party of New Mexico’s new state leadership team met with southern New Mexico Democrats at a reception held in Las Cruces on Tuesday night. Honored at the event were State Chairwoman Debra Haaland, State Vice Chair Juan Sanchez, State Secretary Neomi Martinez-Parra, and State Treasurer Robert Lara.
The four statewide leaders were elected to their Democratic Party posts at the Democratic Party of New Mexico’s State Central Committee Meeting held at the end of April in Albuquerque. Debra Haaland, who was elected State Chairwoman was the Democrats candidate for Lt. Governor in 2014.
The reception, which raised funds for the Democratic Party of New Mexico, was held at the Pickett Law Firm in Las Cruces.
