Jeff Apodaca: New jobs must come with sick leave & child care

When we invest in New Mexico we know we can create 225,000 new jobs--a job for every New Mexican who needs one. But we cannot leave anyone behind. That's why we're going to support drivers of our economy--women, the middle-class and millennials--with equal pay, a living wage, earned sick leave, child care, and investments in the sharing economy that allow thousands of New Mexicans to earn extra income.

Susana Martinez: Each image of child porn should count as its own crime

Those who possess child pornography should face the full weight and serious force of the law. But that's not happening in New Mexico because our Supreme Court ruled that prosecutors no longer have the option to charge someone in possession of child pornography with multiple counts based on the number of images they have. They said our laws aren't clear enough to allow that, and rather than clarify it, some in the Legislature have refused to act. We must close the child pornography loophole.

John Kerry: Fund Head Start to leave no child behind

We need to guarantee that our children are not made the abused of political slogans, Leave No Child Behind. You have to fund education, and you have to guarantee that we’re not content to just spend $50,000 a year on prison. Head Start needs full funding, children need to be funded in this country.
