Neomi Martinez-Parra lives in Lordsburg, NM with her husband, daughter and elderly mother. Professionally, she has worked as a Special Education Teacher with students that have high needs, academically and emotionally. She understands first-hand how difficult it can be for her students and their families to thrive in rural New Mexico, where opportunities and resources can be limited.

As the former vice chair of the Democratic Party of New Mexico, Neomi has travelled all across New Mexico and met with voters to discuss their needs. She has worked hard with many Democrats and Republicans in her area to bring awareness to elected officials. She has fought hard for the voices of New Mexicans who do not always have a say in local matters, and she is ready to represent YOU in the New Mexico Senate.


Health Care

Neomi is the full-time caretaker of her elderly mother, who worked her whole life to provide for her and stood against adversity so her children could thrive. As a caregiver, she has experienced how difficult having access to proper healthcare has stood in the way of her Mother’s needs. There have been times where she has had to drive her Mother all the way to Deming or Las Cruces for medications or appointments, and this has been difficult because of her condition.

Neomi understands that a change is needed, our hospitals are understaffed and underfunded, and rural communities deserve equitable access to quality healthcare. Healthcare is a right, and in order for New Mexicans to thrive, proper care to health and services is something she will fight for in the Senate.


Neomi’s professional background is in Education. As a Special Education Teacher for the Lordsburg Public Schools District, she has seen first-hand the struggles that some of her students and their families face every day. From poverty, homelessness, to having someone to talk to, Neomi has always made it a point to offer a safe haven in her classroom. Teachers across New Mexico are in the forefront of educating our future leaders, and as a Teacher herself, Neomi supports our educators and unions and will fight to improve the quality in our classrooms, and for all students in New Mexico to have equal access to quality education and resources to be competitive with the rest of the world.

Housing & Infrastructure

New Mexico Senate District 35 has a lack of infrastructure and an issue with housing. Many who are waiting for Public Housing have to be put on a long waiting list, and then given homes in bad conditions, making it difficult for New Mexican families to thrive in the area. Businesses in certain parts of the District have been forced to close their doors because of difficult conditions. Small and local businesses are the backbone of America, they provide jobs for families and a future for our children. Neomi vows to fight hard for equal and better housing, as well as for our local economy, which has been hurt due to harsh policies by our own Senate.


Living in Southern New Mexico, Neomi knows that this state is a land full of beauty with a rich history that was loved by our ancestors. This is why preserving our public lands is an important issue in the New Mexico Roundhouse. Families should be able to have access to our public lands and education surrounding them. We are a state with many parks and national monuments, which we must fight to preserve for future generations.


As someone who lives in a community that is next to the U.S./Mexico border, Neomi understands that the conversation is near to her home. She believes in commonsense legislation when it comes to immigration and that everyone deserves an opportunity for a better life.

While immigration is a Federal, and not a State issue, as a Senator, Neomi will not have much of a say when it comes to immigration laws. She does however, support fixing our immigration laws and will do everything she can to make sure her community, and those that live in it, are safer and have equal opportunities to succeed regardless of immigration status.
