State Rep. Alan Martinez, District 23

This is part of a series the Observer is working on to bring news and insights of the Roundhouse to our readers directly from those serving the Rio Rancho area. Our first was with state Sen. Craig Brandt Tuesday, Jan. 24. We plan to bring more of these to local legislators who chose to participate throughout the 2023 legislative session.
