Anna’s Bio

Reunity Resources Grand Opening 2019 with owner Tejinder Ciano

Over the last eight years as a County Commissioner, Anna has continued to deliver for Santa Fe. Anna’s actions to protect our environment and access to water have guaranteed water for future generations through projects like the Buckman Direct Diversion and Pojoaque Nambe Regional Water System (Aamodt settlement).

As a lifelong activist, Anna has always believed Santa Fe should be the example in New Mexico which is why she led the charge to join the Paris Agreement in 2017, meeting the goals set for the past 7 ½ years. Anna also passed a resolution to have Santa Fe County join the Race to Zero 2030 and has ushered in the solarization of 14 county buildings and installed EV charging stations at our county facilities.

Anna has led projects to finish major portions of the Santa Fe River Trail and has supported the Neighbor-to-Neighbor Food Drive for the past 7 years.

Anna is no stranger to getting laws passed and capital outlay secured for our district. Just this past legislative session, Anna helped secure over $6 million for Santa Fe
– $5.45 million for sewers infrastructure and protection of groundwater
– $450K San Ysidro River Crossing -PRE
– $425K for Nueva Acequia Affordable housing units
