Congresswoman Melanie Stansbury to headline the New Mexico Press Women Banquet

Melanie Stansbury

Born and raised in New Mexico, Congresswoman Melanie Stansbury leads with determination and compassion. She has dedicated her career to finding solutions to water issues, poverty, and climate change — representing New Mexico in the Legislature and now in Congress.

She is a champion of efforts to address hunger, food, and water insecurity, conservation and climate change, and economic development and recovery. Stansbury worked in communities across the state as a STEM educator, researcher on land and water issues, and served as a former staffer in the U.S. Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources and the White House Office of Management and Budget.

As the Congresswoman from New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District, she will share her efforts to tackle our biggest challenges—from economic development, to food and water security, to climate change—with New Mexico Press Women on Saturday, March 11, at the Isleta Resort.
