Communication and competency

-A A +A
By Merilee Dannemann

Janice Arnold-Jones and Michelle Lujan Grisham, candidates for Congress from New Mexico’s 1st District, shared a stage recently to debate the issues. Before taking their places at separate podiums, they hugged each other.
Both have a record of working on a bipartisan basis.  
Republican Arnold-Jones worked across the aisle for eight years as a state legislator.  She developed a reputation for mastering the details of issues and insisting on open practices.  At this forum, she said that before she votes on a bill, she will read it – a practice unfortunately not done by all members of Congress.  
She talks about the advantages of seeing issues from multiple perspectives and building relationships as a way to work on the issues.
In response to a recent query from me about signing pledges related to taxes or other topics, Arnold-Jones wrote, “I do not sign any pledges because my only obligation is to the people of the First Congressional District …  I will not submit the people of New Mexico to extreme views that have left government in a stalemate.”
