I'm Janelle

I'm running for HD-19 because for too long, our voices have not been heard in Santa Fe. I am passionate about uplifting our community; Driving resources to those who need them most, supporting our working families, and investing in our children to create a better New Mexico.

My Story

I am the daughter of an immigrant, a proud Burqueña, and an even prouder Democrat. I'm running to make sure our rich and diverse community is represented in Santa Fe. I have been a leader in our Party and our community, working to elect progressive candidates up-and-down the ballot and pass critical anti-discrimination legislation in order to build a fairer and more just New Mexico.


I understand how the legislative process works and know how to get things done. I am ready to represent the working families and small businesses of this district on Day One, and will fight tirelessly for safe neighborhoods, good paying jobs, more affordable healthcare, and much-needed infrastructure improvements.


I was raised in Albuquerque and graduated from Manzano High School. I got my Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Sciences here in Albuquerque at Wayland Baptist and I am an active, longtime member of the choir at St. John's Episcopal.


Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions!
