Sam has spent his entire adult life fighting for causes he’s believed in, working on
various political campaigns across the country to serve in the administrations of 2 Governors as well as working in the New Mexico State legislature for 3 sessions. Sam continues to find ways to serve his community and is also a professor at Grand Canyon University where he is teaching communications classes. He’s also an active Parishioner at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Santa Cruz.
Sam decided to run for Española City council because he’s always been passionate about his hometown. However with the ever increasing crime wave, opioid epidemic and poor economy, Sam felt called to come home to help solve the large issues his home town is facing. Sam wants to make Española a city that is easier, safer, and a better place to live. This means making Española an easier place to do business by reducing tax and regulation burdens on business owners, working closer with those who wish to build in our community, and making Española more affordable so our kids can stay and move back to the city. It also means working closer with the Counties and State police to crack down on crimes like drug dealing and theft. While also making sure our first responders and police are properly funded and supported.
Safer, Stronger, Better. Vote Sam LeDoux for Española
