Crystal Diamond (Democratic Party) is vying to be elected to the New Mexico state Senate to represent District 35 on the State’s Democratic ticket. She is running in the November election for a seat in the legislature, where she will represent a district that has become more upscale and more diverse since the last time an elected official was elected from that district.
It is one of the wealthiest cities in the state and a place with a lot of diversity that is reflected in her background in education and her campaign. The district has become a highly educated, professional, multicultural city. This diversity and wealth of experience have attracted many professionals who are either new or coming to New Mexico from other states. Many families have come to this city to work in fields such as law, medicine, architecture, computer science, engineering and finance.
Her opponent is currently running under the name of the candidate’s name only. Although, the district has a Democratic candidate, his/her name has been used as a way for a political party to sway votes. There is a high percentage of voters who are Hispanic. There are also a large number of students who are enrolled here. These students and the families who have them represent a tremendous opportunity for both parties to win.
Mr. Diamond is well qualified for the position. As the district’s elected education officer, she will work to make sure that every student is able to get the quality education that they deserve. Her opponent does not have the same credentials. He has never taught in the United States and does not know much about education.
This is not a race between two people who live off of a silver spoon, it is a battle between two very different ideas about how the education system should be run. For Mr. Diamond, the idea is to provide a quality education for all students, while his opponent is seeking to keep the status quo and make sure that the wealthy get to keep their silver spoon.
I am sure that most voters do not want their child is attending an institution where they would be treated like a piece of livestock or subject to any form of discrimination simply because of their poverty level. I believe that Mr. Diamond will represent the best interests of the children in this district. and the children of New Mexico in general. In that respect, he will be a champion for our children and families in our state. I believe that this race is a toss-up.
