UPDATE: Em Ward, a long-time Green, applied to fill the vacant state senate seat. She has a long history of peace and environmental activism.

If you live in Bernalillo County, please send an e-mail to the Board of Commissioners in support of her application:
- to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- subject line: Em Ward for SD26
- before: 5:00 p. m., Tuesday, November 15, 2022.
