For the 2012 election, the KUNM newsroom produced a series of voter profiles. Everyday New Mexicans talked about the issues that matter most to them in the voting booth. I produced four profiles for the series that represented a range of perspectives on politics:
- A couple from Placitas, NM who identify as libertarians and are concerned about government spending: Small is Beautiful.
- A young family who supports President Obama and hopes that immigration reform will be achieved if Obama is elected to a second term in office: Family of Three.
- A retired Albuquerque High teacher who sees the country changing and is concerned about how well political parties serve the interests of young people: The Country is Changing.
- And a firearms instructor who is thinking about protections for the constitution and how best to allocate the government’s financial resources : Head and Heart.
