For 30 years I’ve been in awe of my friend Roger Montoya’s prodigious energy, creativity, and charismatic ability to organize volunteers.

    I’ve witnessed Roger develop an ambitious art program for the Española School district, envision and help found La Tierra Montessori School, and establish Moving Arts in Española which serves hundreds of children. He led the effort to open Pathways Homeless shelter.

    While involved in large projects he still finds time to organize a fundraiser for someone with cancer or an art show for a talented child. He spearheaded a community mural to memorialize a teen he’d mentored. He volunteers to help distribute food to people in need.

    Last fall I encouraged Roger to run for the legislature. He quipped, “All I need; another job that doesn’t pay.” But he chose to serve his community.

    Roger will bring creative vision to the legislature. Vote for him for District 40 Representative.
