Independent Candidate Resource Center

We need more competitive elections, yet 70 percent of all elections in New Mexico are not.  If you want to run for office, but do not want to be aligned with the two major parties, we can help.  Between our Board members we have close to one hundred years of elections and campaign experience from local races to congressional.

We plan to schedule candidate training classes starting in the Fall of 2017.  Let us know if you are interested by e-mailing us now.

 

The Declaration of Independents

I am a decline to state voter, but I won’t decline to state that the health of our

democracy is not good.

I won’t decline to state that government is broken.

I won’t decline to state that good people can come together from both Parties

or no Parties and fix it if they want.

I won’t decline to state that a revolution is brewing and has been for a

decade or so if the political class would look up from their re-election

campaigns long enough to notice.

I won’t decline to state that you could take a dozen ordinary people and they

would agree how to solve 80 percent of our problems in New Mexico.

I am a decline to state voter because I don’t want to be branded, labeled or

forced to vote a certain way as a voter, a candidate or an elected official.

I am a declined to state voter because I believe political power should be in

the hands of the people and not the Parties.

I am a decline to state voter because I believe that hyper-partisanship and

gridlock have directly contributed to New Mexico’s last place showing over

I am a decline to state voter because I believe there is a better way to select,

district and finance our candidates and the Parties are blocking reforms that

would make democracy work and move New Mexico in a positive direction.

Decline to state: Don’t think for a moment it means we can’t commit or

make up our minds. It means we have. And we are going to flex our

political muscles soon enough. Just wait.
