“I legally immigrated with my parents at the age of 5, I dropped out from High School at 17, served 25 years in the US Marine Corps, and recently retired as a DoD contractor, I have a strong Nationalistic view-as defined ‘identification with one’s own nation and support for its interests’, shaped by a solid Chrisitian, conservative Hispanic upbringing and career in the Corps. Race, etnicity and victimhood are not factors in my life. We all bleed the same color- red. Hard work, merit and support, when needed, are the key contributors in my success. I am a strong believer in God, Country and Family. “

“My name is Marie Perez, born and raised in Las Cruces. I am currently retired and seeking to participate in and work for worthwhile causes. I have seen this city and state grow immensely in the last 25 years. I see the need to work on:
- retaining our conservative values,
- educating and informing registered voters at the local and state level, and
- electing public officials who will actually listen to the people that voted them in to office by holding them accountable.”
I am currently retired from a 25 year career in the Home Building Industry as a Financial Analyst and Construction Services Manager for two of the top Homebuilders in the Nation.
My past experiences in volunteerism with school partnership programs and advocating for at risk students has made a impact on me when I saw first hand how neighbors and communities can unite in a common cause and make a tremendous difference. I believe in fostering engagement in community based organizations to support one another in taking action for a better tomorrow.
I am excited and grateful to be part of this organization.
An immigrant from Mexico with a 20-year career as a Software Engineer. I have been blessed with parents that because of their sacrifices I live in this great Country. Through my parents’ example of love of God, love of family and hard work, I learned to never be a victim and raise a family that is dedicated to God, family and to their Country. Both my son and daughter have commissioned and enlisted in the New Mexico National Guard. It is now our turn to sacrifice for this country, to stand up, be involved and protect our children and our Constitution.
