N.M. Senate District 4: Sierra Club endorses Noreen Kelly

June 2 New Mexico Democratic primary

District 4 (McKinley, Cibola and San Juan counties): Noreen Kelly

The Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter is proud to endorse Noreen Kelly for N.M. Senate District 4.  Kelly, a Navajo elder from Church Rock, has a deep commitment to community involvement and preserving our resources.

Kelly is a Strong Families core leader on reproductive justice and domestic violence. She is a board member of two Native schools and has been active for 20 years in Diné Elders for Peace, which preserves Native languages and communicates teachings of elders. Kelly is a sexual-assault counselor and works in her community on food-sovereignty issues. 

Kelly’s opponent, Sen. George Muñoz, has a poor 47% environmental voting record. Muñoz has sided with Republicans against key legislation; he voted to keep cruel coyote-killing contests and has opposed funding for universal preschool. A Chevron-funded Texas PAC is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to elect Muñoz, who has taken more than $80,000 from oil and gas interests.

Noreen will fight for clean air and water and invest in protecting all New Mexico families.
