Michelle Lujan Grisham Endorsed by Former Albuquerque Mayor Jim Baca
ALBUQUERQUE – Congressional candidate Michelle Lujan Grisham received the endorsement of former Albuquerque Mayor Jim Baca, a respected environmental leader who served as Natural Resources Trustee, State Land Commissioner and Director of the National Bureau of Land Management under the Clinton Administration.
“Michele Lujan Grisham will be an independent congresswoman who will not be run by the fossil fuel industry,” Baca said. “She will put the energy and environmental security of this country first over the special interests of the coal and oil industry.”
“Jim has always been very candid about his desire to elect like-minded Democrats who will go the extra mile to take on Big Oil and protect our air, land and water; take on the Republicans in Washington who want to cut Medicare; and take on the special interests that want to keep John Boehner as Speaker of the House,” Lujan Grisham said.
Jim Baca has a strong record of visionary service to New Mexico. He recently retired as the State of New Mexico’s Natural Resource Trustee. He has served as Mayor of the City of Albuquerque, as well as two prior terms as New Mexico’s elected State Land Commissioner. He served as the Director of the National Bureau of Land Management, Department of the Interior in the first Clinton Administration. Jim Baca also serves on the Boards of numerous non-profit organizations including The Wilderness Society and the Wyss Foundation and the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance. Baca has run a successful public affairs consulting practice when not serving in public office.
