WHO WE ARE
The Piñon Post was created by conservative reporter John Block to bring New Mexico the highest-quality independent news and conservative opinion on politics and current events.
John is a native New Mexican who is fighting tooth and nail for conservative causes in our state, including work at the New Mexico House of Representatives, advocating on behalf of the oil and gas industry, and volunteering for President Donald Trump’s 2015-16 campaign. He served as the manager of one of President Trump’s largest independent allies, The Committee to Defend the President during the 2020 election cycle.
Throughout his work in New Mexico politics, John has fought and won against out-of-state special interests and radical legislation such as 2019’s abortion up-to-birth bill and 2021’s gas tax at the New Mexico Legislature.
Through the Piñon Post, John is helping bring true representation to conservatives in the Land of Enchantment by exposing corruption and advocating for commonsense conservative ideals.
In 2022, John was elected state representative for New Mexico’s 51st House District in Alamogordo. In the Legislature, John fights for New Mexicans’ constitutional rights and has successfully passed legislation to help veterans.
