Grant County Commission: Browne, Alcorn, Edwards
Grant County voters have a great opportunity to elect a county commission that will preserve Southwestern New Mexico’s unique treasures and resources.
In District 3, Sierra Club has endorsed Alicia Edwards; in District 4, Marilyn Alcorn; and in District 5, Harry Browne. All oppose the billion-dollar Gila River diversion plan that experts have called infeasible and instead advocate for cost-effective alternatives to meet Grant County’s future water needs.
Browne is former executive director and current board member of Gila Resources Information Project, the organization at the forefront of protecting the Gila River and fighting the polluter-written New Mexico Copper Rule.
Edwards founded the Grant County volunteer center and is the county Healthy Kids-Healthy Communities coordinator.
Alcorn is board president of Silver Adult Care Services, a nonprofit she founded in 2009.
