About Me:

I am president of the NM Alliance for Retired Americans, having served in that position from Nov. 2016 to present. Prior to that date, I was 1st VP from 2013 - 2016.

I represent the United Auto Workers Retirees on the NMARA Board, and have been an officer with the UAW Retirees since 1997, serving as secretary, treasurer, and vice-president. In those capacities, I have led our organization in labor rallies, the Rio Rancho 4th of July events, the CNMLC Labor Day Picnic; served as liaison with the UAW and political candidates and our NM Congressional delegation. My focus in that capacity is keeping the UAW informed as to politics in New Mexico, lobbying our NM delegation, and obtaining contributions for them from the UAW.
