« A Candidate In Every District | Main | AlterNet: Democratic and Republican Parties, Realigned »

I have to commend you for some excellent ideas. I like the idea of having regional HDQs but I don't like the idea of separating some of the counties in CD 2 from the others. It was also a bit disturbing to see that in the counties of overwhelming Democratic voting I still did not beat Pearce. Something is wrong with our County Party that is not helping the candidates get their message out better. I think you have some excellent ideas, and I look forward to meeting you Friday and Saturday. I called your number but missed you. I shall try once more tomorrow. Al K

Otero County is delighted to have Nate Cote representing House District 53, but that is only two precincts in Otero. The other 5 representatives (HD 51, 54, 56, 57, 59) are R, and represent, variously, portions of Chaves, Eddy, Lincoln and Otero. We have one D senator, Tim Jennings (SD 32) and 2 R, SD 34 and 40. These senators also represent , variously, portions of Chaves, Eddy, Lincoln and Otero. FURTHERMORE, one of the big guns in the R party and one who controls much of the politics in our region, is Rod Adair (SD 33) of Roswell. So I believe that Otero County needs to be part of the SE region, much as we like our friendly neighbors in Las Cruces.

And we need strong leadership in this difficult region, and the help Dr. Dean tried to give us, but which got sucked back to Albuquerque to help Madrid.

So, besides regional HQs, we need regional CONTROL of our 'field' organizers. Frankly, the East area is so gegraphically diffuse that I think we need a regional HQ in Roswell and an auxilliary one in, perhaps, Carlsbad.

PS you missed Lea (pronounced 'Lee") county, in the extreme SE corner of NM.

Ellen Wedum, Chair, DP Otero Co
candidate, House District 59
