Armstrong brings experience, commitment and passion

Albuquerque, NM – Today, Deborah Armstrong announced her run for New Mexico House of Representatives District 17, which includes the mid North Valley of Albuquerque. Ms. Armstrong has over 25 years of experience in public policy and health care and is a Democrat, small business owner, licensed New Mexico attorney, former Cabinet Secretary and former physical therapist. “I am eager to serve the people of District 17 and I will be a strong advocate for health care, education and economic development for families in our District and our state,” Ms. Armstrong said.

Ms. Armstrong obtained her Bachelor of Science from the University of Michigan in 1975 and her Juris Doctorate from University of New Mexico School of Law in 2001, focusing on health law. In addition to 20 years of direct experience as a practicing physical therapist, Ms. Armstrong has more than 20 years of experience in program management and administration within healthcare organizations. Subsequent to her years in the private sector, Ms. Armstrong spent seven years in State government at the NM Aging & Long Term Services Department, the last half of which she served as Cabinet Secretary. In addition, Ms. Armstrong has taught graduate-level courses in bioethics and has served on numerous state and national boards and taskforces in a variety of healthcare and legal areas.

Ms. Armstrong is President of Delta Consulting Group, Inc, a small health care and public policy consulting group. She is Executive Director, by contract, of the New Mexico Medical Insurance Pool, a safety net program providing health insurance for people with serious medical conditions. On a personal note, Ms. Armstrong has an adult daughter with childhood-onset metastatic thyroid cancer, an experience that has linked her to families across the state struggling with medical concerns.

“I have spent my life working to improve health care access and quality in this state for people of all ages and I would be honored to have the opportunity to continue Chairman Edward Sandoval’s legacy of advocating for patient protection and working families. He has been an incredible leader and effective legislator,” said Armstrong, “I have assembled a strong team of volunteers and together we are ready to go to work and listen to the residents of District 17.”
