Public Awareness

 
 
 

 

 

NEVER USE ALONE
In 2023, Santa Fe County Community Services Department rolled out a public awareness campaign to mitigate harms and overdoses related to fentanyl. The first phase of the campaign (“One Pill Can Kill.”) featured public education regarding the lethal effects of even minuscule amounts of fentanyl.  Phase two utilized harm reduction messages targeted at people who uses substances and showcased billboards, bus wraps, and print materials with the message “Never Use Alone.” Phase three, to be deployed on May 1, 2024, continues to highlight the “Never Use Alone” message while addressing the continuous trend of polysubstance use. This phase also includes a link to Santa Fe County opioid and substance-specific resources and support. See link below.

The development of all public awareness campaign materials is overseen and vetted by a group coordinated by the County, that includes stakeholders representing the Santa Fe County Community Services and Fire Department, the New Mexico Department of Health, community members, community agencies, and law enforcement. The “Never Use Alone” campaign seeks to reduce the number of people killed by fentanyl because they are using it alone without access to a community member or family member who is armed with naloxone. “Never Use Alone” is such an important message, that there is a national effort to use this message for people who may be at risk for an overdose. Harm reduction is part of a more extensive approach that seeks to keep a person alive until they can find their way to health and social services, including treatment and recovery.

Types of Elections in New Mexico

Primary Elections

The Primary Elections in New Mexico are held in June of even-numbered years. These elections are semi-closed and partisan, nominating candidates to appear on the General Election ballot in November. Only registered voters who are affiliated with a major party (Republican, Libertarian, or Democratic) are eligible to participate. Voters registered with a minor party (such as the Green Party) or with no party affiliation must change their voter registration to a major party to be eligible to vote.

Relevant Statutes: Conduct of elections; persons not permitted to vote (NMSA 1-12-7); ARTICLE 8 Nominations and Primary Elections (NMSA 1-8-1 to 1-8-66); Registration at voting location prior to voting (NMSA 1-4-5.7)

General Elections

Taking place in November of even-numbered years, General Elections fill federal, state (both statewide and district-level), and county seats. These elections are partisan, but independent and minor party candidates who qualify will also appear on the ballot.

Regular Local Elections

Beginning in 2019, local elections in New Mexico have been held in November of odd-numbered years. County Clerk's offices are responsible for administering these elections. These elections are nonpartisan and fill municipal and local seats, including school boards, college boards, and city councils/commissions.

Municipal Officer Elections

Jurisdictions that opt out of the Regular Local Election (RLE) Act choose to run their own municipal elections. County Clerk's offices do not administer these elections, which take place in March of even-numbered years.

Media Advisories

 

I am Camilla Bustamante and I want nothing more than for our community to work from its strengths and continue to grow in well-being for all our citizens. Sure, we have challenges to attend to, but when we work together, we can work for solutions that improve conditions for our entire community.

Our rural communities have certainly changed. We have so much more available to us than those in previous centuries, but now we face different challenges. Issues like access to plentiful and clean water; the ability to raise children in a safe and healthy community; and the need to provide housing without creating conditions that displace our residents and future generations are of high importance to me. I will work to ensure that the quality of life for our residents is better than ever. And that teachers, law enforcement, service industry and other working people can afford to live in our county.

I chose to become a public servant so that together we can cultivate the best of our community heritage and contemporary civic engagement to address county-wide issues. Thank you, and please let me know if I can answer any questions.

“I have committed 30 years of my life to the betterment of community in our culturally and geographically unique region. My experience in higher education, workforce training, and community development has prepared me to serve the people in District 3 on the Santa Fe County Commission.”

DWI - LeAnne

DWI Program

 

"The Santa Fe County DWI Program promotes the safety of the people in Santa Fe County by developing and implementing programs to prevent or reduce the incidence of DWI, alcoholism and other drug abuse in Santa Fe County.”

DWI Program Information Funds for these efforts come from liquor excise taxes administered by the New Mexico Department of Finance and Administration, fees paid by convicted DWI offenders in local courts administered by the NM Traffic Safety Bureau, and other fees.

Alcohol & Substance Abuse Prevention

The Santa Fe County DWI Program provides evidence-based prevention services for children and adults in the community. All prevention services are targeted to address substance use and risky behaviors, such as drinking and driving. The goal of our prevention efforts are to challenge societal norms around alcohol consumption, encourage behavioral change, increase protective factors, provide education on substance use and provide access to relevant services for community members. The Santa Fe County DWI Program collaborates with multiple local agencies to address the indicators stated above. In FY23 and FY24 we partnered with the following agencies:

  • Santa Fe Public Schools ( Student Wellness - Santa Fe Public Schools (sfps.info)

  • Innovate+Educate (innovate-educate.org)

  • Team Builders- Behavioral Health Services

  • Reading Quest (readingquestcenter.org)

  • Pojoaque Valley Schools

  • Sombrillo Elementary School

  • Edgewood School District

The partnership with Pojoaque Valley School District is unique. The Santa Fe County DWI Program provides direct support through our Prevention Specialist using evidence-based curriculums implemented at the intermediate school. Gender specific services are provided at Pojoaque Valley Middle School.

The Program also provides direct prevention services at Sombrillo Elementary School and Edgewood Middle School using the same curriculums utilized at Pojoaque Valley Middle School.

Our Prevention Specialists lead various nationally recognized DWI Prevention initiatives in our community such as, Red Ribbon Week and Sticker Shock.

For more information on our local prevention efforts please contact:

Wendy Johnson, 505-992-9856wjohnson@santafecountynm.gov,

Trista Turner, 505-992-9844, tturner@santafecountynm.gov

The DWI Program will begin serving the Edgewood School District in FY24.

Enforcement

The Santa Fe County DWI Program hosts quarterly meetings to coordinate DWI related Law Enforcement efforts in Santa Fe County.  Participating agencies include the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, Santa Fe Police Department, New Mexico State Police (Districts 1 and 7), NM Motor Transportation Police Division, NM Special Investigations Division, Edgewood Police Department, Pojoaque Tribal Police, Tesuque Tribal Police, Bureau of Indian Affairs Law Enforcement, and Special Investigations Division of the Department of Public Safety.  These agencies collaborate in conducting activities such as DWI checkpoints, DWI saturation patrols, DWI warrant enforcement, public educational events, and underage drinking enforcement efforts.

For more information on our law enforcement efforts please contact:

LeAnne Rodriguez, DWI Program Manager:  505-992-9831, lrodriguez@santafecountynm.gov

Alternative Sentencing

The Santa Fe County DWI Program provides support to the Teen Court Program. The Teen Court Program is an alternative to adjudication diversion program for youth ages 12-18. For more information on the Santa Fe County Teen Court Program, please visit Santa Fe County : Community Services : Teen Court (santafecountynm.gov) or call 505-995-9555.

Additionally, Santa Fe County DWI Program recognizes and supports our local Victim Impact Panel. The Victim Impact Panel is a powerful tool used to bring awareness of the seriousness of DWI. The panel includes both offenders and victims that share their first-hand experiences. For more information, please visit HOME | mysite (impactdwi.org).

Outpatient Treatment

All DWI offender are screened and assessed via a licensed clinician. The clinician completes a detailed assessment for each client to determine the appropriate level of care and response. Clients are assessed for the severity of a presenting alcohol or other substance related concern to determine treatment regimen. If a recommendation is made by the clinician, the recommendation becomes mandatory; therefore, the client must complete the required treatment per court sentence. The DWI Program has various contracts in place with local treatment providers to reduce the barriers to accessing treatment for the client. Clients are offered services at minimal cost or they may qualify for aid through the Santa Fe County Healthcare Assistance Program (HAP).

Open Space and Trails - RMasters

Open Space and Trails

 

Mission:

The mission of the Open Space and Trails Program is to create a network of cultural, historical, recreational and natural open spaces and trails throughout Santa Fe County that achieve the goals outlined in the Open Land and Trails Plan to benefit current and future generations.

The program aims to develop open space and trails planning and management based on integration with existing regulations and requirements as well as cooperative efforts between private entities, non-profit organizations and governmental agencies. Based on existing conditions of individual sites, open space and trail facilities are to be developed with an emphasis on multi-purpose functionality, cost effectiveness, community stewardship and affordable maintenance. Acquisition of property is based on voluntary participation from land owners.

Background and History:

The Open Space and Trails Program was initiated in 1998 with backing from the public to develop a coordinated open space program to benefit the citizens of the County. Population growth and continuing urbanization have created a need to protect some of the County’s most distinctive landscapes. The growth has also created a need for additional recreational opportunities. The Open Space program is working to develop a network of cultural, historical, recreational and natural open spaces and trails throughout the County.

County voters approved two bond measures in 1998 and 2000, totaling $20 million, to be applied towards the purchase and maintenance of open space and trails throughout the County. These bond elections received overwhelming support from voters. The bonds identified the following areas to be protected through the Open Space and Trails Program:

  • Historic and cultural areas
  • Natural areas
  • Mountains and foothills
  • Arroyos & river parkways
  • Sacred sites
  • Agricultural land
  • Trails
  • Desert habitats
  • Neighborhood parks

All property acquisitions for the Open Space and Trails Program are completely voluntary on the part of the landowner(s) and are based on fair market value of the property. Currently the County holds 19 properties that include approximately 3,385 acres and has received approval for additional acquisition totaling approximately 1,300 acres. These open space lands are combined with approximately 19 parks and recreation properties to form the core of the County’s open space inventory.
