ABQ small businesswoman Michaela Chavez running for BernCo Commission

Albuquerque small businesswoman Michaela Chavez, a Republican, announced her candidacy for the Bernalillo County Commission’s District 1 seat, which encompasses most of the city’s west side south of Paseo Del Norte, west of Carlisle Boulevard, and north of Central. Along with the North Valley, Downtown, and the Westside, the District also encompasses To’Hajiilee and part of Laguna Pueblo.

The District is currently represented by far-left Democrat activist Debbie O’Malley, who was one of the people who tried to create Albuquerque’s “International District.”

According to a release from the Chavez campaign, Mrs. Chaves “is a lifelong resident of Albuquerque, and her familiarity and experience with her fellow citizens in Bernalillo County brings a voice to the county commission that offers common-sense solutions to old problems.” She has been involved with the local Bernalillo County Republican Party and previously sought the GOP nomination for Congress in 2021’s special election to fill a vacancy left by Deb Haaland in the First Congressional District.

“Before anything else, Michaela Chavez is a proud mother of two children. Chavez assists her husband of 18 years in the operation of his small financial firm. Chavez has a lengthy track record of community service and grassroots organization. Michaela Chavez plans to focus on crime, educational programs, and economic recovery initiatives to repair the damages caused by harmful policies during the” pandemic lockdowns.

“Michaela was taught all of the values that make New Mexico a great place to live: faith, family, hard work, and culture. She has also seen first-hand the same hardships that all citizens of Bernalillo County have faced: high crime, poverty, poor education, and leaders who have kept us dead last. She is running to address these issues and leave her kids with a better Albuquerque that affords them with the opportunities that we all know we can achieve with the right leadership.”

Michaela Chavez writes on her website, “I want to focus on the issues that impact New Mexicans, and we need to stop electing politicians who play political games with people’s lives. I want to work for you. We need to create more jobs, protect small business, improve our schools, and make public safety a top priority. The old ideas aren’t getting the job done—Bernalillo County needs a fresh perspective.”

Education, crime, small business, and homelessness are among the issues Chavez is running on. Read more about her by visiting her website here
