About MeBuilding a Prosperous New Mexico
My name is Ali Ennenga. My husband of 5 years gave me this nickname when we were dating. Ali is short for alegría, which means “joy” in Spanish, because he says I give him joy. So I became Ali, and it stuck. I find joy in being with my family, working in a non-profit, and in serving my brothers and sisters in New Mexico.
My father is a Navy Veteran, so a Navy brat, I’ve lived in 14 states— New Mexico being the last (and the best)! In 1992, I moved to Albuquerque to be near my parents, and as I came down through the beautiful Tijeras Canyon, the sun was just setting, and the lights of Albuquerque were just coming on. In that moment, I was home! I felt a sense of peace and happiness that I never felt anywhere else. I love New Mexico. It is my home.
I have been in New Mexico for 27 years. I got both of my degrees here – a Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice Administration, and a Master’s in Education. I was a paralegal for 18 years, and a teacher for 7 years. I am now the proud co-founder and Director of Community Relations of ¡Basta! NM Foundation, an organization helping other non-profits achieve their goals.
I am so excited to be a candidate for the New Mexico State Legislature, House District 15 – Los Ranchos, North Valley, NE Heights, and a small portion of the Westside. What better way to put my passion to work than to serve you, my fellow New Mexicans in this capacity?
Remember: It’s not about BLUE. It’s not about RED. It’s about being a NEW MEXICAN and respecting our values. I want to do what is good and right for YOU – my friends, my family, my fellow New Mexicans.
Your support is appreciated. Thank you!
