My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Think New Mexico, Santa Fe, NM, USA
Think New Mexico is one of the most effective non-profit organizations I have encountered that is committed to improving the way that state government serves all its people. The think tank’s success in achieving the concrete legislative results it seeks is thanks to its particularly thorough, principled, big-picture, non-ideological approach to issues of urgent public interest. A diverse, cross-partisan board and dynamic organizational structure—employing a small, talented staff and rotating cast of accomplished interns and volunteers—ensure the consistently high quality of the policy proposals Think New Mexico produces. And, importantly, the organization ensures that these well-researched proposals are not resigned to the desk-drawer graveyards of the political class, but earn their due attention, regularly contributing key perspectives toward productive solutions in such complex areas as education, poverty, natural resources, and bureaucratic corruption and reform. I am honored to have contributed modestly to help keep this organization doing its important work, and I raise a grateful voice on behalf of fellow New Mexicans for the ways it continues to positively affect our lives.
