Growing up in Las Cruces, Xochitl Torres Small learned the New Mexico values of hard work, grit, and a commitment to make Southern New Mexico a better home. While her family never had a lot of money, Xochitl learned that through hard work and a good education she could not only succeed, but also give back to the community that made her success possible.
After graduating from college, Xochitl returned home to Las Cruces and worked as a Field Representative for Senator Udall. Xochitl worked to increase cell phone service, broadband, and other communication lines in rural New Mexico. She worked with teachers, college instructors, and business leaders to create better job opportunities for local graduates. She also helped bring farmers, conservationists, and communities together to protect New Mexico’s water.
Now, she’s running for Congress to give a voice to the families in New Mexico’s second Congressional District who have been ignored by Washington’s rigged system.
