Weh Picks Journalist for Press Secretary

New Mexico businessman and Republican Allen Weh announced today that he has hired Christopher Sanchez as press secretary for his gubernatorial exploratory committee.

As a student, Sanchez served as the editor in chief of the New Mexico Daily Lobo, the independent newspaper at the University of New Mexico. Sanchez has written for several publications, including The Albuquerque Tribune, The Albuquerque Journal and The Denver Post. He is a recent graduate of the University of New Mexico where he served two years as president of the school’s Society of Professional Journalists and won a number of prizes for his journalistic work, including two Associated Press Managing Editors Awards.

“I am honored to work with Allen Weh as he explores a possible run for Governor in 2010,” Sanchez said. “New Mexicans will be voting for the candidate they feel will bring change to the Governor’s office. They will be looking for a leader who will put New Mexicans back to work without raising taxes, who will end corruption in state government, and who will stand up for our small businesses and our families. I believe that leader is Allen Weh.”

Sanchez said he looks forward to working with the committee and sharing Weh’s commitment to serving New Mexico.

“Christopher Sanchez will be a great asset to our team. He’s smart, he has great communication skills, and, as importantly, he shares my vision for making New Mexico a better place for the benefit of all the people,” Weh said.
