Burlington, VT Today Democracy for America (DFA) endorsed Mary
Ellen Broderick for New Mexico House District 30.
"Mary Ellen is a lifelong activist
with a spirit for change, Jim Dean, Chair of DFA, explained to NM voters
while canvassing with Mary Ellen this weekend. She not only believes that
things will improve in New Mexico, but she will fight for whats right, whats
fair, and be a strong advocate for her community. Real, progressive change happens at the local
level. It manifests itself more quickly
because ordinary people see what matters to their community and what will help
make things better. Thats why were urging folks in New Mexicos 30th
District to support Mary Ellen.
Mary Ellen Broderick has been a leading progressive activist in New Mexico
since she co-founded the Democracy for New Mexico blog and meet-up group in
2004. Broderick believes that healthcare is a fundamental right not a
privilege for just those that can afford it and she will see that healthcare
reform is fully implemented in the state because it not only provides
desperately needed services, but also provides thousands of new health-related
jobs. Mary Ellen will also embrace New
Mexicos unique leadership towards a green-energy economy by investing in new
sustainable sources of clean energy and putting her foot down to hold polluters
I am extremely grateful for the DFA endorsement. Democracy for America believes in people
powered progress, not corporate funded campaigns, said Mary Ellen Broderick. This is exactly what my campaign for NM House
District 30 is about people power.
Were grassroots at every level.
I never thought I would be running for State Office, but the time has
come for average everyday citizens to take back our government.
Mary Ellen is running against first-term
Republican Nate Gentry. Since taking
office, Gentry has inexcusably missed 94 votes, making him among the most
absent members of the New Mexico Roundhouse.

Committee. With over one million members nationwide, DFA is a grassroots
powerhouse working to change our country and the Democratic Party from the
