Meet Jessey Baca – and watch Tom’s new ad

Despite objections from the VA, I fought to create the Open Burn Pit Registry to help veterans like Jessey Baca of Albuquerque’s South Valley. Jessey and thousands of troops and veterans are suffering from serious illnesses after breathing toxic fumes from burn pits in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I was honored to stand with Jessey and his wife Maria to help veterans get more information about treatment — and hopefully one day find a cure.

It’s about doing what right for New Mexico and our veterans.
