Reaction from Tuesday night’s State of the Union address by President Barack Obama:
State Rep. Stephanie Garcia Richard (D-Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Sandoval and Rio Arriba):
“An underlying theme of the President’s speech was that America cannot wait on Washington. That is a message that I take to heart and I’m proud that our community and state are already rising to the challenge. In Los Alamos, our teachers and community leaders are working with the state to fix a teacher evaluation system that does not work. And at the state level, we are working on a constitutional amendment to provide funding for early child education. In addition we are also working in the legislature to make sure that New Mexicans who work full time do not have to raise their families in poverty. These changes we plan to bring to the voters for approval in November.”
Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D- N.M.): “Tonight, President Obama spoke of the great promise of America and the essential role that a vibrant middle class plays in enabling our nation to achieve its full potential. In declaring a time of action and signaling his determination to move our country forward, President Obama made it clear that the challenges facing our country and the American people can’t wait.
