ICYMI: Rep. Monica Youngblood Announces Campaign for Re-election to House District 68

Albuquerque, NM – Yesterday, State Representative Monica Youngblood announced her re-election campaign to the State House.

Youngblood is an Albuquerque native, born and raised in the South Valley.  As a single mom at the age of 25, she started her own real estate company and today is recognized as a top realtor in the Albuquerque metro area.  She is also active in her community by volunteering at LifeQuest NM, Junior Achievement and the National Hispanic Cultural Center.

As a member of the Legislature, Youngblood is the Vice-Chair of the House Education Committee.  She sponsored and passed the bill to keep e-cigarettes out of the hands of minors and she also sponsored the bill that allows ride-sharing companies like Uber and Lyft to operate legally in New Mexico.

Youngblood’s accomplishments have been noticed at the national level. In 2014, she was named as a Rising Star by the Republican National Committee and Youngblood made the Washington Post’s “40 under 40” list.   Locally, Monica has been recognized by Albuquerque Business First and the Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce for her work in the Legislature.

“I am excited to announce my re-election campaign.  We’ve achieved many goals, but there remains work to do.  I’ve been honored to serve my constituents for the last four years and look forward to serving them once again,” said Youngblood.
