Councilor Rogers Family

Councilor Rogers stands on the shoulders of a long line of public servants. From her father, Bernard, who is a former police officer and long-time business owner, to her mother, Vanessa, an early childhood educator, all the way to her grandfather Bob Baca who served honorably as New Mexico’s State Fire Marshal. As a Black and Hispanic single mother of two, her heritage and culture mean the world to her and give her a unique lens that helps her to think critically and be solutions-oriented. Councilor Rogers will fight to help your family navigate systems just as she helps her own family so we all have what we need to thrive, not just survive.
