Bernalillo County Commission: Adrian Pedroza
Adrian Pedroza was until recently the Executive Director of Partnership for Community Action, advocating for education, economic, immigration, and civil-rights issues, as well as working with Southwest Organizing Project on environmental justice advocacy.
He has been a strong voice opposing the Santolina development, a huge sprawl development project southwest of Albuquerque with no plans for how water will be provided for the development.
“Bernalillo County District 2, with the Rio Grande, Bosque, and acequias running through it, with its wildlife, with its farmland, the Valle de Oro Wildlife Refuge and Tingley Beach, and with its magnificent vistas, both east and west, is one of the most beautiful spots on the planet. It’s important that we preserve our most special places while demanding environmental and economic justice,” Pedroza said.
“Everyone, in our district and elsewhere, has the same basic right to a safe and healthy place to live, work and play. I appreciate the work done locally by the Sierra Club to protect this right and look forward to partnering with them as a County Commissioner,” he added.
