AFP-NM Applauds McKinley County for Supporting Right to Work

Mar 13, 2018 by AFP

Gallup, NM – Americans for Prosperity-New Mexico (AFP-NM) is applauding the move by McKinley County Commissioners to pass a Right to Work ordinance. Commissioner Bill Lee is sponsoring the ordinance. When Right to Work passes, McKinley could be the second county in New Mexico to expand workers’ rights.

The grassroots group was in attendance to testify and has launched a digital effort to educate citizens and encourage County Commissioners to support Right-to-Work.

AFP-NM state director, Burly Cain released the following statement:

“Right-to-Work means more jobs for McKinley County. Commissioner Lee is championing workers’ rights by sponsoring a Right-to-Work ordinance, and we hope the rest of the Commission supports a proven policy to become a more attractive place for workers and entrepreneurs.”

AFP-NM has been the most vocal advocate in the state for local governments to pass policies that empower New Mexico workers. Last September, AFP-NM launched the “New Jobs New Mexico” campaign – a robust grassroots, direct mail, and digital effort to educate citizens about the impact of Right-to-Work. AFP-NM first rallied in Sandoval County ,which passed Right-To-Work on January 19th, and the group committed to engaging across the state to make New Mexico the next Right-to-Work success story.
