New Mexico Legislative Session

APS will have representatives in Santa Fe during the 30-day 2018 New Mexico Legislature to advocate on behalf of our students and employees.

Although the district supports the right of employees to voice their political views, employees should not use the APS email system to express political opinions, nor should political emails be sent during the work day.

An APS employee who wants to attend a Legislative hearing or session of the Legislature and has not been requested to do so by the district must take annual or personal leave.

If you as an APS employee are contacted by a legislator during the session for information about proposed legislation, contact Carrie Brunder, director of government affairs and policy, at carrie.brunder@aps.edu. She will help make sure that information is gathered and is consistent with the district’s position on any proposed legislation.
