Well the campaign is going well. That is my second job. I am the campaign manager for Moises Gonzales for Bernalillo County Assessor. I know, crazy huh? He's buena gente from around the way and I am proud to be working with him. I'm also working with an awesome team of extremely talented people. Joaquin and I are blessed to have such a strong community.
Monday was the kick-off of the campaign and we had a great turn out, lots of compliments on the event and people noticed the strength in our young progressive team. A few people from the clicka have organized a "Nuestra Gente Caucus" within the party. They will be meeting this weekend in Española. We have a fundraiser coming up on the 11th at the Land Grant hall in Carnué. So we are rocking and rolling.
I also want to give a shot out to my homegirls at La Placita. I will miss you the next couple of weeks. I promise to bring you something back.
I am taking off now to Music City. I am attending a conference at Vandi with 4 young women from UNM. They are wonderful students, scholars and activists. We are attending the Campus Organizing and Outreach League (COOL) Conference and get to visit my mom & dad. I'm looking forward to this weekend. Gotta run I will let you know how it goes. Sorry for the typos. Love, Mer
