The Change We Need
Jeff comes from a blue collar family, one who instilled in him a strong work ethic and spurred him on his career path. Jeff worked tirelessly as a full-time line cook as he put himself through school, completing both his undergraduate and graduate degrees at UNM. Making his way from the kitchens of Yanni's and Nick and Jimmy's, Jeff made the leap to the nonprofit sector, pouring his heart and soul into his jobs at Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation, and then onto Cuidando los Niños where his role as a public servant continues to this day, helping the homeless children of our city and their families.
Jeff has both the passion and the chops to serve as a City Councilor. In his role as Executive Director at Cuidando los Niños, Jeff oversees an almost $5 million dollar budget and a staff of 40 people. In his time at Carrie Tingley, he was able to expand their reach to include San Juan and Doña Ana counties. He continuously pushes the envelope and demands we do better.

I've learned that a Measure Finance Committee (MFC, aka a political action committee) called Help ABQ has sent out negative messages. I am disappointed in this, since this PAC has chosen to support me in this election. Voters may think that I sent it or endorsed it. I didn't authorize these communications and I have no control over this PAC. It's more than unfortunate that they are tying my campaign to negative messaging. The HelpABQ PAC and Rival Strategies put out a message that contradicts the values and commitment to positivity that has brought our campaign this far. The message suggested that "liberal extremist groups" are trying to influence this race. That is not true. I reject HelpABQ's message that organizations like Planned Parenthood or the Sierra Club are extremist groups. I stand with Planned Parenthood and I am strongly pro-choice. My wife and I have donated to Planned Parenthood, and I have personally taken actions to protect a woman's right to choose. Planned Parenthood is by no means an extremist group. Same for Sierra Club. I sought these two endorsements, and I came close to getting both of them. My campaign has never engaged in negative messaging. You, the voters, deserve better. I urge voters to take a close look at each D6 candidate's background and experience before making the very important decision of who to vote for. I suggest you check the candidates' websites, petedinelli.com, the Albuquerque Journal and League of Women Voters' vote411.org. You can also check nmcourts.gov/caselookup where you will be able to see that I have no criminal or civil cases against me whatsoever - except for one parking violation, which wasn't even mine. Make sure to check out my previous Dear Voters letter at jeff4d6.com for more on Help ABQ, tenants' rights, the role for real estate development, and my support for small business.
As we get close to Election Day, I have heard that there is some misinformation circulating about me and my campaign. Don't buy it. Let me tell you who I am. I am a lifelong progressive Democrat. I am not "in the pocket" of developers or businesses. I run a nonprofit that is helping Albuquerque families break the cycle of homelessness. My campaign has gained broad community support while being privately financed. I entered the race late at the urging of my neighbors, and had to focus all my energy on qualifying for the ballot and did not qualify for public financing. That said, I am proud to be running a clean, transparent, grassroots campaign.
The truth underneath all this misinformation is that I have attracted a broad base of support across District 6 and across the political spectrum. It is true that a political action committee funded by local business people is supporting my campaign. I'm not ashamed to say that I support small businesses, which are the true economic drivers of District 6. And I am in favor of smart, sustainable development that will help District 6, particularly the International District, while always keeping a focus on economic justice, social justice and environmental justice. I support ending the "in lieu of" loophole that allows developers to avoid building affordable housing. I support creating and enforcing a tenants' bill of rights. And as City Councilor I will insist that the City massively step up zoning enforcement to protect tenants, neighborhoods and communities. I have built a huge amount of support among young people and seniors, progressives and moderates, Democrats and independents, and I will represent all of District 6 without compromising my values. I'm not wasting my time and yours on negative messaging in this campaign. I am focused on getting your vote based on my ideas and my experience. Our opposition won't define or divide us. Vote for Jeff Hoehn on November 7, for the change we need now more than ever.
