From the Chair

A new ward structure, new volunteer opportunities, but the same old dodgy Republican county commission

By Alex Piland, DPSC Chair

What an eventful end of the year it has been! The ward reapportionment has passed the County Central Committee (CCC) with 79 votes to approve the reapportionment, and 4 votes to not approve.

Vice Chair Chavez began working on this last March, and he has done an incredible job! The Democratic Party of Sandoval County now has a total of 13 wards (up from 5). The wards are realigned as shown here.

Maps with clear distinct ward boundaries and precincts are posted on our website, sandovaldemocrats.org. From the home page, click on “About the Party Organization,” and then click on “Wards and Precincts.” Ward chairs will be appointed early in 2022.

As always, if you would like to become more involved, please contact me at chair@sandovaldemocrats.org.

We have plenty of volunteer opportunities available for everyone, especially in this election year!

If you are a member of the CCC or if you hope to become a delegate to this year’s pre-primary convention, please attend your ward’s meeting via Zoom. Dates are as follows:
Wards A, B, C, D and E will meet on January 29.
Wards F, G, H, and I will meet on January 30, and
Wards J, K L, and M will meet on February 5.

Our CCC meeting will be two weeks later. An official “Call to Meeting” with links and times will be sent thirty days prior.

Speaking of meetings, the Democratic Party of New Mexico will be holding its pre-primary convention on March 5 in
Roswell—Covid permitting. Click here for more information about the pre-primary convention.

Finally, to everyone’s frustration, the Republican majority Sandoval County Commission neglected to include stakeholders in the county to their county redistricting. They
chose to employ a partisan consultant to redistrict without including any of the leaders of Sandoval County’s sovereign nations. The consultant actually argued that he knew what was best for redistricting the Native American communities in our county!

The process used to employ this partisan hack was out-of-the ordinary, and the redistricting packed and cracked in order to
maintain Republican leadership in a county that has more registered Democrats than Republicans.

Even though the redistricting contract was awarded in July, the county manager claimed that there wasn’t enough time to consult with affected parties. Our two Democratic county commissioners were not even informed of the redistricting until after
the maps were drawn.

Please continue to express your opposition to the County Manager Wayne Johnson and Commissioners Block, Heil, and Meek.

By the way, Meek is up for reelection in 2022, and we are seeking a Democratic challenger. He passively ran unopposed in his last election and was therefore allowed to be a “walk-on” for this important seat.

Meek has been nothing more than an acolyte for the destructive, non-inclusive policies put forth by the chair of the commission. His voting record proves that he is not a critical thinker and does not consider what is best for his constituents.

Meek must be challenged. The Sandoval County Commission is too important to concede to unscrupulous Republicans!

Are you the right candidate to beat Michael Meek? If so, please contact me at chair@sandovaldemocrats.org.

We have devised numerous ways of supporting candidates and can provide you with information, advice, and modest financial support.

On behalf of the DPSC Executive Committee, I wish you all a happy and healthy 2022.
