PLEASE NOTE: U.S. Senator Tom Udall is unable to join us for the Gala for the Gila on Saturday, September 22 given a change in his schedule. State Senator Jeff Steinborn, a strong conservation advocate and champion for the wild Gila River in the New Mexico legislature, will be our guest speaker. 


Jeff Steinborn was elected to the New Mexico Senate in 2016 after serving in the House of Representatives District 35 from 2012-2016, and District 37 from 2006-2010.  He serves as the Vice Chair of the Senate Rules Committee, a member of the Public Affairs Committee, and is the Chair of the Radioactive and Hazardous Materials Interim Committee. During his time in office, Jeff has passed a diverse range of legislation including protection of our water resources, allowing 17 year olds to vote in primary elections, and establishment of the statewide Rio Grande Trail.  He has been a champion of the environment, fighting to reform wildlife laws in New Mexico, outlaw coyote killing competitions, and expand the use of solar power on state buildings.
