Maxine J. Wilson

  1.  What qualifies you to be a councilor in Tijeras?  I am experienced, honest, committed, dependable, a longtime resident, familiar with the concerns of the residents, and am very passionate about the welfare of the Village of Tijeras. 
  2. What are the top priorities for your village? Accountability, Financial stability, Communication, Water system and Waste water system
  3. How do you propose to address those priorities? My intentions are to incorporate my experiences, knowledge and resources I have acquired over the years as an elected official to provide growth and prosperity by including the input of community and businesses. I plan to expand my “Open Door” policy by meeting with residents and encouraging they vocalize their concerns, complaints and ideas, which in turn will provide better communication, accountability and financial stability.
