Bernalillo County Commission Chairwoman Maggie Hart Stebbins will be our guest speaker on Thursday, Feb. 14 at 11:45 a.m. at the Embassy
Suites. Hart Stebbins will discuss the ways the County Commission is allocating $20 million that taxpayers in Bernalillo County approved to rebuild the mental health services system dismantled by former NM Governor Susanna Martinez.

Hart Stebbins has championed Behavioral Health projects and the Bernalillo County Behavioral Health Initiative outlines the projects the county is backing to
improve the lives of citizens.

In her time on the commission, Commissioner Hart Stebbins has also focused on ethics reform; expanding local economic opportunities through responsible job creation; feeding hungry children; improving access to mental health and substance use treatment services; supporting at-risk students and their families through the ABC Community School Partnership; protecting Bernalillo County’s great open spaces including the county’s first urban open space at the UNM
North Golf Course; increasing the county minimum wage; and working to make sure men and women receive equal pay for equal work.

As a member of the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority Board, she is committed to protecting our precious groundwater resources. She led early efforts to remediate the Bulk Fuels Facility jet fuel spill at Kirtland Air Force Base and sponsored county policies to reduce nitrate contamination from leaking septic
systems.
