Background on Ane Romero, candidate for House District 15
Ane Romero is a nationally recognized policy and award winning mental health advocate, speaker, and trainer who was born and raised in New Mexico. She has a long-standing record of dedicated public service and has fought to protect some of our state’s most vulnerable populations.
While still in college, she wrote NM Senate Joint Memorial 61, which became one of the state’s earliest pieces of mental health legislation to pass the New Mexico State Legislature. This led to a request from the New Mexico Department of Education to participate in helping to re-write the Benchmarks and Standards for New Mexico School’s K-12 health curriculum.
Ane Romero will fight for quality education for every child and work towards a system that supports educators, will work towards rebuilding our economy by supporting small business and creating advancements for a skilled and trained workforce and will continue to work towards real and innovative solutions to ensure the well-being and safety of our communities.
