InfoMartin Heinrich has committed his life to helping people. From a young age, his parents instilled in him values of hard work, determination, and a strong sense of justice and fairness. Today, he's a strong, principled and articulate leader who puts people first.

Martin grew up in a middle class family that worked hard to make sure their children had the opportunity to succeed. His parents taught him to work hard, play by the rules and to always lend a helping hand.

Instilled with a strong foundation and a sense of values and purpose, Martin earned a Bachelor of Science and Engineering degree from the University of Missouri and has taken several graduate courses in the University of New Mexico's Community and Regional Planning program. Immediately after graduating college, the first decision Martin made as an adult was to make New Mexico his home. He fell in love with our state’s natural beauty, rich history, fascinating people and delicious food (especially the green chile enchiladas!).

In his professional life, Martin has dedicated his life to the public good. A small businessman, he founded his own public affairs consulting firm serving not-for-profit and education clients. As a non-profit executive, Martin served as Executive Director of the Cottonwood Gulch Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing young people with natural science and environmental education experiences through wilderness expeditions.

Martin is a natural leader who has been active in his community and across New Mexico. He was appointed by Governor Bill Richardson to be Natural Resources Trustee for the State of New Mexico. In his capacity as trustee, Martin worked with the Governor to clean up contaminated land and protect our natural environment. Martin has been active in land use, planning and conservation policy, holding board positions with Albuquerque's Open Space Advisory Board, the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance and the Southeast Heights Neighborhood Association.

Martin is a different kind of leader – one who gives us a sense of hope. Martin served on Albuquerque City Council for four years, including a term as City Council President. During his time on the Council, Martin spearheaded measures aimed at cracking down on crime, raising the minimum wage, creating good jobs, and making New Mexico a leader in energy efficiency and alternative energy like wind and solar power.

Martin is the kind of leader that says what he means and means what he says. You’ll always know where he stands and without a doubt, he always has the best interests of New Mexico at heart.

Martin and his beautiful wife Julie are blessed with two happy and healthy children, Carter and Micah.
