Let's Talk New Mexico 10/29, 8a: As winter approaches and COVID-19 continues to spread at an alarming rate, politicians will be making decisions that can mean life or death for their constituents. On this week's call-in show, we want to hear how things are going for you, and what you expect from the people you’re supporting at the ballot box. What lessons should our elected leaders learn from other countries that have avoided high death tolls? What do you hope to see from a next round of coronavirus aid money?

What needs to change at the local, state or federal level? What promises do you want politicians to make good on? Reach out at letstalk@kunm.org, tag us on twitter with the hashtag #LetsTalkNM, or call in live during the show.
