This Saturday: Campaign Kickoff for Hank Hughes for PRC

Hankhughes Note: Check out an interesting Q & A with Hughes at the Santa Fe Reporter.

From Hank Hughes for PRC:
On Saturday, January 23, Hank Hughes will officially launch his campaign for the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission. He'll be running in District 4, which includes the counties of Bernalillo, San Juan, McKinley, Santa Fe, Cibola, Sandoval, Rio Arriba, Socorro and Valencia. The campaign launch will take place from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM at the home of Rose and Robert Gallegos, located at 11 Torneo Drive in Santa Fe (map). All are welcome.

As Commissioner, Hank will continue his work to advocate for New Mexico's families by making the PRC more transparent and accountable to the public.

As former Executive Director of St. Elizabeth's shelter in Santa Fe and the current Executive Director of the New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness (NMCEH), Hank has a long track-record of advocating for New Mexico's homeless. And most recently, his management skills and passion for helping those in need have resulted in the development of green affordable housing projects aimed at eliminating homelessness in our state.

Hank's priorities include making the PRC more accountable to the public by introducing more ethics reforms and oversight, making our state a renewable energy leader and standing up for the rights of New Mexico's consumers against corporations and utilities.

"Through my experience in serving homeless families and managing two successful non-profits, I believe I can help turn the corner at the PRC. I have spent the last 18 years leading organizations that help homeless families in New Mexico, said Hughes. "And most recently, through my work at the New Mexico Coalition to End Homelessness (NMCEH) I have been developing new, green affordable housing units in Santa Fe, Gallup, Albuquerque, and Las Vegas."

The Primary election will be held on June 1, 2010. The District 4 seat on the PRC is currently held by fellow Democrat Carol K. Sloan, who was elected in 2006.
