Rio Rancho, NM – Today, Sandoval County Commissioner Jay Block is proud to announce the endorsement of 2019 New Mexico Teacher of the Year Jessica Sanders in his bid to take over the Governor’s office. Jessica joins Chaves County Sheriff Mike Herrington and Eddy County Sheriff Mark Cage in endorsing the Block campaign. Sanders shared the following statement.

“As the 2019 New Mexico Teacher of the Year, I am passionate about education in the state of New Mexico.  I am proud to endorse Commissioner Jay Block for Governor.  I have talked to Jay about his plans to improve educational opportunities and outcomes for students in New Mexico.  We have discussed the importance of academic standards that equip students to join the workforce or pursue high educational opportunities, the importance of streamlining processes at the NMPED that support teachers, the importance of retaining and recruiting teachers, the importance of parent involvement and parent choice in our schools, and the importance of maintaining the foundations of education by not imposing critical race theory on the children of New Mexico.  Jay and I have also discussed his support for local control of school boards and honoring the voices of their communities.  Jay is by far the right person to create the positive changes needed in education to benefit and prosper the children and educational system of New Mexico. ”

“I am honored to have Jessica supporting my candidacy. She has been in the trenches fighting for our next generation. Our schools should not be failing our students across the state due to poor decisions made by those in power. Teachers and students should be provided with the resources they need to be successful. As Governor I will fight to improve our broken education system in New Mexico” Block said.

Jay continues to build momentum in his candidacy to bring new leadership to New Mexico by locking up key endorsements, winning numerous straw polls, and consistently being the target of attack by the radical socialists trying to take over the state.
