House of Representatives
Xochitl Torres Small
Current office holder: Steve Pearce (R)
Growing up in Las Cruces, Xochitl learned the value of hard work, grit, and determination from her parents, a public school teacher and a social worker. They never failed to go the extra mile and find solutions for those they worked with, and they continue to live their lives in pursuit of service to others. Xochitl used that same approach when she worked for Senator Tom Udall, where she collaborated with local government, farmers, developers, and conservationists to protect New Mexico's water. She uses it now in her work as a water attorney, and she pledges to bring it with her to Congress as well. Her number one priority will always be New Mexico's hardworking families.
