League of Women Voters Provides Comprehensive Directory of New Mexico Elected Officials.

Here is a quick question for you.  Do you know how many offices Sen. Tom Udall and Sen. Martin Heinrich have around the state?  You're probably guessing they have offices to cover each of the regions in New Mexico.  But do you know where those offices are?  They each have offices in the three major cities, Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Las Cruces.  Sen. Udall also has an office in Carlsbad, while Sen. Heinrich has a presence in Roswell and Farmington.

The addresses and telephone numbers for each of those offices are included in the Voters' Key 2013-2014 directory, which the League of Women Voters of  New Mexico recently published.  This great guide also has contact information for Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham, Rep. Steve Pearce, and Rep. Ben Ray Lujan.

Oh yes, it has information about how to contact the Washington offices (including Web addresses) of all our federal elected officials, as well as how to contact President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.

The guide also has comprehensive information for New Mexico officials, starting with Gov. Susana Martinez, Lieutenant Gov. John Sanchez, Secretary of State Dianna Duran, Attorney General Gary King, State Auditor Hector Balderas, State Treasurer James Lewis, and Commissioner of Public Lands Ray Powell.

The guide also tells you how to contact the Public Regulation Commission and the Public Regulation Commission, both of which have offices in Santa Fe

Sen. Tim Keller
The contact information for the legislative branch is also available.  The local contact information for each of the 42 State Senators and 70 State Representatives is also included, as well as the areas they represent.  Do you know the names of your representative and senator?  If I wanted to contact Sen. Tim Keller or Rep. Mimi Stewart, the guide tells me how. 

And let's not forget about the judicial branch.  You can contact the New Mexico Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals, both of which have offices in Santa Fe. 

The guide is a great service that the League of Women Voters of New Mexico offers to residents of our state.  We owe them a debt of gratitude.  Click here to download a copy of the guide in PDF format.
