Gabe Vasquez wants to “transition” away from energy jobs
The state’s energy industry single-handedly gives billions to New Mexico’s public schools, which means cutting the energy sector not only kills energy jobs but could put public education funding at risk.
Last month, Vasquez voted against legislation to produce more clean, reliable and affordable energy in America. Taking it a step further, Vasquez has called to end oil and gas “immediately” and to “shut it all down.”
“Gabe Vasquez’s extreme anti-American energy stance will kill not just New Mexico’s energy industry but also the school system.” — NRCC Spokeswoman Delanie Bomar
