I'm running for State Rep against an ALEC Star

PRESS RELEASE
Committee To Elect Denise Lang
New Mexico State Representative District 51
Contact: Karen L. Hutchison; 575-571-7645;
committeetoelectdeniselang@gmail.com

Alamogordo, New Mexico; March 8th, 2016. Long-time Otero County resident, Denise Lang, filed as a candidate for New Mexico House District #51 at the Otero County Clerk’s Office today, March 8th. This is Denise Lang’s first venture into state politics and her priorities are: equality of rights, investment in children’s education and well-being, and the responsible stewardship of public lands.

“Additionally, I recognize the importance of alternative energy and responsible management of our public resources. More significantly, I understand the vitality and value of the people of Otero County.” When questioned about her motivation to run, Lang answered, “I made the decision to run based on feedback from this community. Many of my future constituents do not feel they are represented by the incumbent.”

Ms. Lang’s commitment to Alamogordo and Otero County is demonstrated by her involvement in the Veterans Suicide Prevention program, the Otero County NAACP, Alamogordo AIDS Awareness, Otero County Community Health Council, Behavioral Health Local Collaborative 12, Peace and Justice of La Luz, and Books Behind Bars.

Denise Lang has a degree in accounting and worked in Otero County as an accountant with a CPA firm, staff accountant for the City of Alamogordo, finance officer for the Boys and Girls Club, business manager at a cancer treatment center, and as a smoking cessation specialist.

“I welcome input from folks who want to make Otero County and New Mexico the healthy, prosperous places they deserve to be.” Denise Lang can be contacted at 575/446-8583

3. Du has been my lifeline, my sanity, my rock

...now someone said, 'Tag, you're It.' Research shows that if I run, I will be able to garner more votes for our Dem Presidential candidate and Dem US Congressman candidate, Merrie Lee Soules. At 65, I will be in front of my laptop less often, but in the streets more often...you may be able to help by sending $10 and a video of why you support me (once I give you additional reasons beyond being a DU member! ha)..when I get my website up.

5. Good for you!

 

I ran for the Kansas State House of Representatives in 2004. And even though I lost, it was a completely amazing experience and more people should run for office, in my opinion.
