Senator Greg Baca Appoints Christopher Saucedo to Citizen Redistricting Committee
SANTA FE – Senator Greg Baca (District 29-Bernalillo and Valencia) today appointed Christopher Saucedo to the Citizen Redistricting Committee.
Saucedo was raised in Doña Ana County and graduated from Gadsden High School. He earned his degree in business administration from New Mexico State University and his law degree from the University of New Mexico. Saucedo previously served as the President of the Board of Directors for the National Hispanic Cultural Center and was recently reappointed to the New Mexico State University Board of Regents.
“Christopher Saucedo is a highly accomplished, well-respected New Mexican and I am honored to appoint him to the Citizen Redistricting Committee,” said Senator Baca. “The citizens of New Mexico deserve a fair and honest redistricting process, and Christopher is uniquely qualified to represent us and carry out the responsibilities of this role. His commitment to our state is unwavering and we are truly fortunate to have someone with his talent and integrity willing to serve.”
The seven-member Citizen Redistricting Committee was created by the New Mexico Legislature and tasked with developing redistricting plans for New Mexico’s congressional and legislative voting districts, and other state offices requiring redistricting. The redistricting plans adopted by the Committee will then be submitted to the Legislature for consideration during a Special Session later this year.
“I thank Senator Baca for his confidence in appointing me to this committee,” said Saucedo. “The redistricting process is a vital component of our representative form of government that will impact the state and its citizens for years to come. I look forward to working with the other members of this committee to develop voting districts that are fair and respect and reflect New Mexico’s diverse communities.”
Saucedo currently practices law in Albuquerque, where he resides with his family.
