June 2 New Mexico Democratic primary
District 28: Grant, Socorro and Catron counties: Siah Correa Hemphill
The Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter endorsed Siah Correa Hemphill for N.M. Senate District 28 because of her deep commitment to her community and to protecting our resources.
Siah was inspired to pursue her 25-year career in education and special education by her son Nicholas, who was born with a rare genetic syndrome and has multiple disabilities.
Born and raised in Grant County, Siah will be a strong voice for environmental values in Southwest New Mexico, continuing the leadership that Howie Morales began in this district. She supports local water-conservation projects rather than the expensive Gila River diversion to meet Southwest New Mexico’s water needs.
Siah is a founding member of Grant County Federation of Democratic Women, a school psychologist and teacher and a working mom.
She is challenging Sen. Gabriel Ramos, who backed the disastrous Gila River diversion plan and voted to keep cruel coyote-killing contests legal. A Chevron-funded Texas PAC is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to elect Ramos, who has sided with Republicans to block critical environmental legislation.
Siah Correa Hemphill will work with our governor to make New Mexico a better place to live, work and raise a family.
