Albuquerque, South Valley, representative Javier Martinez has become one of the most prominent, if not the most prominent, legislator in Santa Fe. On this month’s show Representative Martinez joins host Stephen Spitz to discuss his journey from his childhood home in Juarez, Mexico, to an organizer in Albuquerque’s South Valley, and then on to our Legislature.
Among other things we will discuss Representative Martinez’s sponsorship of the two most contested actions in the 2021 Session: tapping our $ 22B Permanent Fund to expand early childhood education and legalizing marijuana.
Produced with assistance of Tristan Clum and Lynn Schibeci
