For 30 years, Don Wiviott has thought about serving in Congress and says the time is now right to do so.
“With my skills and experience … this is the highest and best use for my life,” he said during an editorial board meeting at the Monitor Thursday.
Wiviott is a Democrat running for Rep. Tom Udall’s seat in the 3rd Congressional District. He calls being new to politics an advantage.
“I’m a clean slate, beholden to no one,” he said.
Wiviott responded to opponents who criticize him for putting nearly $1 million of his own money into his campaign.
“I’ve been saving for 30 years so I could do this,” he said. “The things I believe in are more important than having that money in the bank.”
He also mentioned that 65 percent of the individual contributions he is receiving from supporters amount to $200 or less.
For more than a decade, Wiviott has committed himself to green building and green living. His signature development, The Lofts in Santa Fe, features a number of innovative green building techniques to reduce his company’s carbon footprint.
