Report Card: New Mexico Congresswoman’s Anti-Worker Record

by James Parks, Oct 23, 2006

In the decade she’s been a member of Congress, Rep. Heather Wilson (R-N.M.) has voted against the interests of working families 78 percent of the time. Now the union workers in her district are holding her accountable.

Today, New Mexico union leaders are releasing in Albuquerque a report card to union members on Wilson’s record. The AFL-CIO is compiling report cards on some members of Congress to highlight how they voted on jobs and wages, retirement security, health care, tax fairness and education, among other issues. The first report card released last week on Rep. Charles Taylor (R-N.C.) showed Taylor voted with President Bush 90.59 percent of the time—and only 15 percent with working families.

Today’s report shows Wilson voted with President Bush 85.88 percent of the time. The AFL-CIO has endorsed Wilson’s opponent, state Attorney General Patricia Madrid.

Says Chris Chavez, executive director of the New Mexico Federation of Labor:

With the mid-term elections right around the corner, it’s important that we hold our elected officials accountable for the votes they cast for or against the priorities of working families. As Congresswoman Wilson embarks on her final stretch to rally voters, we will not allow her to sweep her poor working family record under the rug.
