How can the Bernalillo County Clerk better serve you?

I am seeking ideas on how to improve the Bernalillo County Clerk processes and systems to better serve you the public. Please visit my Ideas page to learn more.

What does the Bernalillo County Clerk Do?

Please see Bernalillo County Clerk Duties (extracted verbatim from the 2023 - 2024 edition of the Bernalillo County Budget Book)

Why vote for me?

As YOUR Bernalillo County Clerk I will work to ensure the utmost level of accuracy and public confidence in our election systems and other business processes in the county clerk's office. My decades of experience in the optimization and automation of business systems will enable me to do that. My current understanding of how tabulators are used, regulated, and verified in Bernalillo County will ensure that the Bureau of Elections provides accurate, reliable and transparent election operations and results.

An essential part of transparency is to maintain a public presence ensuring that the voting public is made aware of election systems. We must clearly communicate a correct understanding of the processes in place and any issues encountered. We must present clear, correct, and precise problem solutions and process improvements. I have encountered first-hand the need to push back on the Secretary of State for transparency when ensuring current election laws are followed. We must also be willing to educate the public and our legislators if election laws need to be changed to better serve our voters.

Why financially support my campaign?

Effective Use of Campaign Resources

In order to understand my chance of winning and what I can do to improve my chances, I built a model based on historical voter data and attributes of voters. I included parameters for estimating voter turnout of various groups. My model then uses the voter data and the parameters to estimate my probability of winning. The model predicts that I can win if I attract enough of the following voters:

I am targeting those voters with direct mail campaigns using a custom letter in envelopes rather than marketing materials. I send them out using my own marketing mail permit for a steep discount in postage. However, the volume needed to reach my target voters is greater than my capacity to produce the letters in-house. I need to use the services of mail houses who can produce my letters and my envelope design in high volumes.

I will also use campaign contributions to reach out to absentee ballot requestors once their ballot is sent to them.

Why volunteer for my campaign?

We all know that volunteers are crucial to campaigning. I appreciate every volunteer and I promise to make the most effective use of your valuable time!

If you only have a small amount of time available but would like to help reach out to fellow Republicans, please consider using the new Turning Point Action App. I put together a short tutorial to help get you started.
