The Democratic Party of San Juan County owes a huge debt of gratitude to all of you who took part in this year's local election cycle. 

You might have been someone who donated or volunteered, or you might have attended one of our meetings or read our newsletter. Some of you called us on the phone to get information about candidates and ALL of you voted. 
Some of you even did the hardest thing: you ran for office.

DPSJC laid groundwork this cycle that will benefit us for years to come. We hosted our first-ever candidate bootcamp with the best political consultants in the state. We ran out first-ever Donation Matching program, which distributed thousands in campaign funds to local races. We piloted a first-of-its-kind paid canvassing program, which we hope to explore more in future cycles.

However you contributed, we want to say thank you. Like in many cycles before, we won some and lost some on Tuesday night. We're proud of our victories and bitter about our defeats, and we are more determined than ever to fight for the best vision for the community we love. 

There's a lot of work left to do and we are truly grateful for each and every one of you.

In Albuquerque, Mayor Tim Keller achieved a sweeping victory with 55% of the vote. ​​Voters expressed their support for Mayor Keller’s small businesses incentives, his investment in jobs, and his record successfully navigating the COVID-19 pandemic.
In Santa Fe, Incumbent Mayor Alan Webber also took home a significant victory against the two other mayoral candidates. Voters sent a clear message that Webber’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, his approach to addressing homelessness and affordable housing, and his ability to expand the city’s economy is exactly the leadership Santa Fe needs. 
In Rio Rancho’s competitive school board race, former Rio Rancho High School principal Gary Tripp defeated radical—and divisive—political operative Patrick Brenner. Voters backed Tripp over his clear-eyed commitment to growing career technical education, ensuring universal availability of high-speed broadband, and imparting financial literacy to students. 
In the Las Cruces’s City Council elections, progressive candidates Becki Graham, Becky Corran, and Yvonne Flores made history when they were elected to join the now all-female City Council. Las Cruces voters rallied around the candidates’ Democratic values such as providing living wages, increasing affordable housing, and improving public education. 

DPSJC Partnered with the Apache County (AZ) Democrats to register voters at the Shiprock Flea Market on Saturday. Our volunteers Mary Ann Briody and Barbara Morgan joined Apache County Democratic Chairwoman Priscilla Weaver and her husband John Watts. We registered voters in San Juan County, Apache County and the Navajo Nation, and met lots of Dem friends! We want to do this again soon but we need more volunteers-if you want to help with voter registration, email us at

CLUB10 is our generous team of donors who make a monthly contribution to DPSJC through our ActBlue page. CLUB10 is the engine behind everything we do, including our 2021 Campaign Donation Matching program that we offered to all Democrats running in local races this cycle!
