We asked the four gubernatorial candidates about their childhoods, to understand how their formative years shaped their thinking about what we regard as the most critical issue confronting New Mexico.

Something must be done for our children. The time is now

Addressing our problems will without question require massive investment. Failure to do so will cost the state far more. Every one of us is affected when child well-being is compromised. The economic, educational and social ramifications radiate throughout society; the lives of other people’s children touch all of us. There is no hiding.
