Melanie Stansbury NM CD1 Representative-Elect

Congratulations, Congresswoman-Elect Melanie Stansbury!

About Melanie Stansbury, Democratic Candidate for Congressional District 1

Melanie Stansbury was born in Albuquerque and raised as a New Mexican organizer. Stansbury has dedicated her career to the “heart of New Mexico” — the community that showed her care and support. After years of work on land, water, and community issues in New Mexico, Stansbury went to Washington D.C. where she joined the staff of the Office of Management and Budget during the Obama administration and later the U.S. Senate in the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources to work on these issues at the national level. She currently serves as the first woman elected as State House Representative to District 28. Stansbury is committed to lifting up the voices of New Mexicans, addressing food and housing insecurity, fighting for universal access to healthcare, building and diversifying our economy, protecting our sacred lands and waters, and tackling global climate change.
