Interview with Lieutenant Governor Candidate and State Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino

Late yesterday evening in Santa Fe I was able to sit down with State Senator Jerry Ortiz y Pino and ask him questions about the budget, the partnership bill and education.

Senator Ortiz y Pino is a candidate for the position of Lieutenant Governor and a progressive who is running on a platform of progressive values. He has promised not to give up those values if elected as New Mexico’s next Lieutenant Governor.

Senator Ortiz y Pino has been described as a very effective legislator and I am sure that the other candidates all wish that he would continue his important work in the state senate. Senator Ortiz y Pino answer is that he thinks he would be even more effective in the lead chair in the state senate.
