Albuquerque, N.M.–– The leadership at Dream In Action NM, the electoral arm of NM Dream Team––the largest immigrant youth-led organization in New Mexico––, issued the following statement announcing its endorsement of Rob Grilley, seeking election to serve as City Councilor for Albuquerque’s District 9.
Today, we are excited to announce our official endorsement for Rob Grilley seeking to represent Albuquerque residents in District 9. Rob has shown a commitment to advancing progressive policies that promote the wellbeing and success of BIPOC communities, the LGBTQ+ community, and immigrant and refugee communities in our city. From improving education, to defending workers’ and immigrants’ rights, and elevating the voices of our LGTBQ+ community, Rob is the best choice for Albuquerque.
We look forward to working alongside a great progressive leader like Rob who will help drive ABQ forward in the right direction–one that ensures we build back stronger than before!
DIANM’s members will be launching an accelerated canvassing & digital program for Grilley and will be organizing phone banks, which will result in getting Albuquerque voters out to vote for our next city mayor and city councilors.
