League issues 2020 Guide


The League of Women Voters of Southern New Mexico (LWVSNM) announced today that an updated, comprehensive directory of elected officials from Doña Ana County is now available for the public. The 2020 Who’s Who of Elected Officials can be downloaded from the LWVSNM website (www.lwvsnm.org/whos-who/) or picked up at Thomas Branigan Memorial Library, Las Cruces City Hall and the Doña Ana County Government Center, said League Co-President Kathy Brook.

“For more than 30 years, the League has produced Who's Who to promote communications with the elected public officials who serve us,” Brook said.  “During that period, it has expanded considerably to include officials in Anthony, Hatch, Mesilla, Sunland Park and soil and water conversation districts, as well as Las Cruces and Doña Ana County.” 

Brook said the directory includes phone numbers, email addresses, as well as website addresses for elected officials. In addition to county positions, such as county commissioners, clerk, sheriff, treasurer and assessor, the directory includes federal officials such as the president and vice president, congresspersons and the U.S. senators. State positions from the Executive Branch include the governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, attorney general, and members of the governor’s cabinet, among others.

“The League is a non-partisan organization that does not support or oppose any candidate. Once candidates are elected, it’s important to get this information into the hands of all residents,” said Eileen VanWie, LWVSNM Co-President. “This directory is a way to keep communication transparent for the electorate.”

The 18-page directory also has contact information for the Las Cruces City Council, the three school boards in the county, state and local judges, several state commissions, plus the managers for the local governments.
