Beyond Politics

Joe Carraro is a voice that transcends traditional political narratives, now diving into conversations that matter. While his video discussions touch on global events he goes deeper addressing issues that matter to the everyday lives of Average Joes and Janes and keeping promises he makes as he helps those who lack a voice to government.

Beyond the limelight of politics, he champions causes close to his heart such as the rights of the developmentally disabled and other conditions as well as figuring out ways to afford costs. This commitment is not just a chapter in Joe’s past; it’s an ongoing conversation that will find its way into his future actions.

Through his dialogues, Joe aims to foster a community where everyone is informed, and every discussion leads to meaningful solutions.

ALL POLITICS IS LOCAL

When he first decided to run for office as a Senator, Joe’s philosophy was formed and that’s what he carried through in his service to New Mexico and the Country. He made promises that would fulfill his constituents demands including building a new bridge across the Rio Grande — a task that was denied for decades stifling any growth on the Westside of Albuquerque which was populated by dirt roads and students from the Westside and Rio Rancho going to one high school and a couple of elementary schools with the only park labeled “sticker park” for its prevalent natural inhabitant.

Joe ran his campaign guaranteeing he would pass the bridge legislation in first year or he would resign from office. His opposition was the Governor and Speaker of the House who vowed that bridge would not be built.

He kept those promises after winning in a landslide. Then, before he was sworn in as Senator, he travelled the state talking to legislators in both parties about what needs they had that he could assist them with and how he needed their help to build a desperately needed bridge for his district and the entire Westside of Albuquerque. His bridge bills passed with overwhelming bipartisan support along with funds for schools and roadways and of course, the many projects needed throughout the state with his promised support.

He then joined with Senator Pete Domenici and the Native American tribes and pueblos to create the National Petroglyph Monument in his district intersected by the Paseo del Norte road that was the extension roadway from the bridge uniting both east and west sides of Albuquerque.

Joe has extensive experience as a Senator for over 20 years who transformed the NW into a growing business and residential community with his vision and legislation to build a Bridge. As an educator, his students have testified to his expertise and unparalleled ability to engage his students.

A NEW MOTTO FOR NEW MEXICO?

Heard on Weekend Edition Saturday
By Scott Simon

New Mexico state Sen. Joseph Carraro wants to change his state’s motto. It’s now “Crescit Eundo” (It Grows as It Goes). He prefers “Antiqua Suspice, Crastina Accipe” (Cherish the Past, Embrace the Future). Why? Carraro tells Scott Simon that no one knows what “It Grows as It Goes” means. (More…..)

HIS RECOMMENDATIONS BACK THEN THAT WERE NOT FOLLOWED HAS LED TO WHERE WE ARE TODAY.

CURRENT CONVERSATIONS WITH AN AVERAGE JOE

Open Borders

Open borders– closed future It all started after 9/11 with the faulty decisions made in the establishment of the department of homeland security. Our open borders will lead to the end of our country with the blame squarely on the president with the support of the democrat party members who don’t utter a word about it and the treasonous mainstream media.

Conversations About Hunter

Russia/Ukraine war caused by complicity of our government and the distractions and control caused by our mainstream media protecting Biden, similar to the Russian media which just parrots and protects Putin.

Age vs Competency

We need to examine how age is substituted for competency using the cognitive capabilities of governor bill richardson and president bill clinton as examples. Do we ask 95 year old warren buffet to quit picking great stocks to invest in or stop carol burnett from performing or clint eastwood from producing. Yet we have others like senator feinstein and justice ginsberg who died in office and other who cannot function while still serving. The problem is we judge people by a variable that is different for everyone when it should just be based on capabilities. Senator joe shares his thoughts on age related to soft skills, education, and competency assessment.

What It’s Like For Some Veterans On Veterans Day

Senator Joe talks about what some veterans feel on Veteran’s day. Some of these men and women chose this path to for love of country and those people aren’t always comfortable with the attention given to them during veteran’s day. This is different from Memorial Day. Some are proud to serve their country and do not even want to remember the experience. Some prefer to keep themselves busy instead of remembering. Instead of bringing back memories, what can we do to make veterans proud to say they’ve saved and served the country?
