Santa Fe River
Senator Wirth is Chair of the Senate Conser-
vation Committee as well as a membr of the
mittee and an advisor
to the Water and Nat-
ural Resources Com-
mittee, among other
Senator Wirth states
that, "No issue is more
important to New
Mexico's future than
water. The severe
drought, a pending
lawsuit in the US Supreme Court filed by Texas against New Mexico, projections of zero water delivery from the Rio Grande to farmers south of Elephant Butte, climate change, endangered species. The list of challenges goes on and on...One thing is certain, as Chair of the Senate Conservation Committee, I plan to elevate the water discussion and proactively work with my colleagues to look for solutions."
Senator Peter Wirth
Senator Wirth has been the recipient of the Jack Taylor "Best in Government" award from Common
Cause New Mexico and recognized by Conservation Voters New Mexico as a "Green Champion."
Senator Wirth promises to offer a serious look at New Mexico's future in relation to water and Amigos Bravos will be offering you the opportunity to purchase tickets for the Raffle for the Rio! The raffle is our one and only community-wide annual fundraiser. We depend on your support!
