Carolyn Dawn Provencher, Democrat for state House of Representatives District 56, said recently that if elected, she would work to create an environment that would entice its young people to stay in the state, and would make education, alternative energy and increased services for veterans and retirees priorities.
Provencher, a resident of La Luz, is unopposed in the Democratic primary for District 56.Incumbent Rep.
A counselor at Cloudcroft High School, Provencher, 49, also is a part-time faculty member at New Mexico State University and NMSU-Alamogordo where she teaches social work.
A licensed social worker, she holds a master's degrees in social work and education.Originally from Georgia, Provencher served there on the White County Board of Health and the White County Child Fatality Review Board in the late 1990s.
She has worked as a child protective services investigator for the states of Georgia and Texas, and as a private practice mental health therapist.She also worked for the Georgia Mental Health Institute as director of a community-based residential program for adult-male offenders with mental health issues.
Provencher said New Mexico ranks low compared with other states in terms of livability but can improve because of its favorable climate and natural beauty.
"We're not being proactive enough to capitalize on what our state has to offer," she said."I want anything that will bring New Mexico up in comparison with the other 49 states."As a legislator, she added, she would work to increase services for veterans and to attract a veterans clinic to the state.Provencher said she also would work to get more services for seniors including support for senior centers and education courses about issues such as the new Medicare prescription drug benefit.
Provencher said that teachers have been "running themselves ragged" trying to meet federal No Child Left Behind requirements and that more teaching time is needed to meet those standards.
"We've got to make sure that our students are equipped with what they need to meet those mandates," she added.
Provencher said the state also should take advantage of its ample solar and wind resources.
"This state should be the leader in terms of alternative energy," she said."We've got wind.We've got sun."
She said New Mexico must manage its scarce water supplies with meaningful conservation and the best available technology, and she recommended that a desalination plant be built for non-potable groundwater in the Tularosa Basin.
To fight the youth gang problem in New Mexico, Provencher said she would work as a legislator to put more after-school programs in place.
"We've got to provide these young people with something positive to do," she added.
To combat the methamphetamine problem, she favors restricting the sale of over-the-counter medicine used to produce meth.
Provencher said her background in social work and education make her the best candidate in the District 56 race.
"I know how to ask questions.I know how to gather information.I can advocate and solve problems with input from other people," she said.
"I'm proud I'm not a career politician," she added.
