Mosquero, NM—Jack Chatfield, a Harding County rancher and businessman, announces his candidacy for the State House of Representatives, District 67.
“Our district has a reputation for sending strong representation to Santa Fe, including outgoing Representative Dennis Roch of Logan and former Representative Brian Moore of Clayton,” said Chatfield, “and I am asking my friends and neighbors to trust me to represent them as well as these two gentlemen have.”
Chatfield himself has a history of public service, having served sixteen years on the Mosquero Schools Board of Education. “I have seen firsthand the struggles of our rural schools and communities,” Chatfield explained, “and I will tirelessly advocate for them in the legislature.”
As a lifelong rancher, Chatfield also recognizes the critical role agriculture plays in the region’s economy and in its heritage. Furthermore, Chatfield’s active involvement in the New Mexico Cattlegrower’s Association and with his local Soil & Water Conservation District has already afforded him many opportunities to advocate for rural interests before state lawmakers.
Finally, as the owner and operator of a small business, Chatfield knows the value of hard work, and he plans take this work ethic to Santa Fe.
“The future of New Mexico,” said Chatfield, “depends upon our willingness to roll up our sleeves and get to work protecting our land, our freedom, and our way of life.”
