Thank you for electing me to a second term to the New Mexico House of Representatives. Your support is truly appreciated.
Team Dines worked diligently to collect all of our “Vote Jim Dines” signs. If you see any that were missed, please send me the address(es) so we can collect them.
TRANSPARENCY AND ETHICS IN GOVERNMENT
As your first term District 20 State Representative Jim has continued his policy of not accepting lobbyist or PAC (political action committee) money, free gifts or free meals. He does this because it is the right thing to do.
Jim fought successfully for over 20 years in the courtroom for state and local open government. He received the NM Foundation for Open Government’s (NMFOG) Lifetime Achievement award for his work on behalf of the public.
Jim’s bipartisan resolution to establish a transparent and independent Ethics Commission passed the House, but died in the Senate. He will continue the fight to establish this much-needed commission.
Jim voted for legislation to strengthen the laws against DWI, repeat offenders, domestic violence, and other criminal offenses.
EDUCATION and ECONOMY
These areas are tied together. Jim will continue to vote for a better education for our children, and the building of an economy which results in our graduates and employees staying in New Mexico because good jobs are here for them.
