Think New Mexico

A Results-Oriented Think Tank Serving New Mexicans

Think New Mexico is a results-oriented think tank whose mission is to improve the quality of life for all New Mexicans, especially those who lack a strong voice in the political process. We fulfill this mission by educating the public, the media, and policymakers about some of the most serious challenges facing New Mexico and by developing and advocating for effective, comprehensive, sustainable solutions to overcome those challenges.

Our approach is to perform and publish sound, nonpartisan, independent research. Unlike many think tanks, Think New Mexico does not subscribe to any particular ideology. Instead, because New Mexico is at or near the bottom of so many national rankings, our focus is on promoting workable solutions.

Consistent with our nonpartisan approach, Think New Mexico's board is composed of Democrats, Independents, and Republicans. They are statesmen and stateswomen, who have no agenda other than to see New Mexico succeed. They are also the brain trust of this think tank.

As an independent, statewide, results-oriented think tank, Think New Mexico measures its success based on changes in law or policy that we help to achieve. Our results include:

  • making full-day kindergarten accessible to every child in New Mexico
  • repealing the state's regressive tax on food and successfully defeating efforts to reimpose it
  • creating a Strategic Water Reserve to protect and restore New Mexico's rivers
  • establishing New Mexico's first state-supported Individual Development Accounts to alleviate the state's persistent poverty
  • redirecting millions of dollars a year out of the state lottery's excessive operating costs and into full-tuition college scholarships
  • reforming title insurance to lower closing costs for homebuyers and homeowners who refinance their mortgages
