Russell Black and Jana Hodge have joined the Allen Weh 2010 team’s grassroots effort to mobilize New Mexico voters. Among other duties, Black and Hodge will organize volunteers in Lea County and make sure Weh’s many supporters in that county turn out to vote.
Black is a former police officer and the morning host on 95.7 KPER in Hobbs. He has worked for campaigns in New Mexico for many years and is a member of the Lea County Tea Party Patriots.
“I first met Allen Weh interviewing him on my radio show,” Black said. “I noticed right away that there was something different about the way he answered questions. It was like talking to a friend who was answering from the heart, not giving the answer that would get the most votes.”
Hodge owns Phoenix Environmental LLC, a Hobbs-based oil and gas service company that has been in business for nearly a decade. She’s a member of the Lea County Republican Women’s Club and an active member of the county party.
“I am a firm believer that the state should be run like a business,” Hodge said. “Allen is a successful businessman who understands that you can’t spend money you don’t have if you want to be successful.”
Weh said, “Russ and Jana are natural leaders who will help us expand our base in Lea County and make a key contribution in taking our state in a better direction.”
