Georgene Louis Running for New Westside House District 26
Georgene Louis is a candidate running to represent new House District 26 located on the southwest side of Albuquerque. The new district was created to address the tremendous growth in population that has occurred over the past 10 years. “On the Westside, our families are given the opportunity to grow with our beautiful community,” said Georgene, “If elected, I will ensure that our community members get the fair representation and support that they we deserve.”
Georgene is a native New Mexican and originally from the Pueblo of Acoma. Currently, she is an attorney at the Luebban Johnson & Barnhouse law firm and an adjunct professor at the University of New Mexico. But, her path was not an easy one.
As a young mother, Georgene worked hard to accomplish her goals and received her law degree while meeting the challenges of raising her daughter as a single parent. “In my family, education was highly encouraged, and understood to be the key to a successful future. I had my daughter at a young age and she served as my motivation to succeed. With the love and support of my family, friends and community members I pursued my education knowing that it would help me provide for my family and serve the community to the best of my ability,” said Georgene. She will work hard to ensure that all families have access to a quality education and supports adequate funding for our teachers and schools.
Georgene chose to practice law in New Mexico as a personal commitment to serve as an advocate for underserved communities. She has served the community on many boards like the Acoma Business Board and through her work with the NM Gaming Control Board. She has experience in working with stakeholders to identify effective economic development solutions and is committed to leveling the playing field for small businesses while creating good jobs in our community.
Georgene Louis will be a strong advocate at the legislature for workers, seniors and families. “I am committed to advocating for solutions to some of our most pressing concerns around jobs and foreclosures, access to quality education, affordable health care, public safety, the environment and Westside infrastructure needs. “
