ALERT: NM Redistricting Committee holding first meeting Friday—public comment encouraged

NEVER FORGET Millionaire Santa Fe Attorney promised to rig CD-2 to favor Democrats!

On Friday, The New Mexico Citizen Redistricting Committee meets at 3:00 p.m. via virtual conference, and the public is invited to attend. “There will also be public comment near the beginning of the meeting on the online public mapping tool, dates and locations for CRC meetings, and rules of procedure,” according to the Committee.

The Committee has already embraced left-wing groups planning what they claim are “fair” redistricting maps. However, they erroneously claim an attack on “minority voting rights,” although New Mexico is a minority-majority state. Groups like the far-left “Common Cause New Mexico” claim to want “equitable district maps,” which is code for left-leaning.

Citizens are asked to specifically speak out against the proposed RULE 10, which would gag the public (including communities of interest) from having any conversations with the members of the committee. This would keep the people out of the process if they cannot attend one of the six set meetings. This is voter suppression. This is what the rule says:

10. EX PARTE COMMUNICATIONS:
A. A member of the committee may not engage in any private communication with
any individual other than committee members, committee staff, or committee contractors,
concerning any district plan or part of a district plan.
B. Committee staff and contractors, including any contract demographers, may not
engage in any private communication with any individual, other than committee members,
committee staff, or other committee contractors, concerning any district plan or part of a district
plan.

The NM Citizen Redistrict Committee has shared information from far-left groups on Twitter, such as liberal Princeton University’s “Gerrymandering Project” and the fringe group “NM Native Vote,” which spent many resources earlier this year to elect socialist U.S. Rep. Melanie Stansbury (D-Bernalillo). 

The Redistricting Committee is made up of the following members: 

HON. EDWARD L. CHÁVEZ, CHAIR – Retired Democrat Supreme Court Justice 

RYAN CANGIOLOSI, MEMBER – Appointed by Republican Leader Jim Townsend (R-Artesia)

LISA CURTIS, MEMBER – Appointed by Senate Pro-Tem Mimi Stewart (D-Bernalillo)

ROBERT RHATIGAN, MEMBER – Chosen by the Committee

JOAQUIN SANCHEZ, MEMBER – Chosen by the Committee

MICHAEL SANCHEZ, MEMBER – Appointed by Speaker Brian Egolf (D-Santa Fe)

CHRISTOPHER SAUCEDO, MEMBER – Appointed by Republican Senate Leader Greg Baca (R-Valencia)

  1. Yvette Herrell, representing rural, conservative Congressional District 2 has been a lone voice in the wilderness , crying out for border protection., continued oil, as well as other significant issues facing us. If CD2 is gerrymandered to limit its Republican demographics, the people of southern New Mexico will have no representation, and no firewall. We will be left high and dry, lost in the desert without any representative coming to our rescue.
    I recall that famous Revolutionary War rallying cry: “No taxation without representation.!”

  2. Ilhan Omar is a threat not only to AmericanJews, but to the state of Israel and America too. Her words are like the hate speech used by Hitler. Never again!
