Personal Note from Dan
I can humbly say that tonight, “We won!!”
We started this campaign to work for every resident of District 6. I will work hard every day to make not only our district but all of Rio Rancho the best community that we can for our families and our future.
I cannot begin to thank everyone for all of their help on this campaign. I can’t wait to get started.
Rio Rancho is positioned to be a leader in economic development in our state as the fastest growing city abundance of land and great talent we must take on this challenge now.
Meet Dan Stoddard
Dan moved to New Mexico in 1987 where he met his beautiful wife, Joy in 2000 and made a family with their two boys – Brody is 27 & lives in Lubbock, Texas; Danny is 25 & lives in Eloy, Arizona with his wife Cortni & their son Brayden.
Shortly after marrying his wife in 2000, Dan left his full time job with Federal Express to pursue his passion for the care of the senior and veteran populations. In 2001 he started a small Assisted Living in Clovis, NM. When he retired in 2015, he also had a 59-bed facility in Santa Rosa, NM.
As a US Coast Guard Veteran and coming from a military family, he has a passion to serve our veterans and looks forward to working on starting a Veterans Court for Sandoval County.
Dan loves spending time with his family and especially his grandson, Brayden. Dan is a Christian and an active member of the community. When he’s not busy supporting Sandoval county or a variety of non-profits, you might catch him on his motorcycle enjoying the New Mexico scenery or enjoying a green chili cheeseburger with friends.
Some of my Accomplishments
One example my leadership was my role on the Clovis City Commisioner and Curry County Commisioner to expand the Southwest Cheese plant. Working with other leaders, the plant was expanded. They are now world class leaders in cheese and whey protein.The plant produces over 3.8 billion pounds of milk and products in assess of 388 million pounds of superior block cheese and 29.1 pound of value added whey protein powders each year with a workforce of over 300.
Another example of leadership was my role in Cannon Air Force Base as a City & County Commissioner, and the VP for the Clovis Chamber Executive Board of Govt. Affairs. We were given a waiver to find a mission or the base would be closed during a round of Brack hearings.
- Worked with Washington to find a mission
- 27th Special Operations Force
- Today – the base hosts 6500 Air Command and their families and support staff.
- The Melrose bombing range (25 miles from Clovis) was available to all forces)
- Primary training range for the 27th fighter wing, approximately 3400 F-16 sorties annually and other trainings.
- Flights are held above 30K feet to minimize any potential environmental effects. Cannon’s airspace is close to 50K feet I some areas.
**With that acquisition, we were able to secure long-term relationships with the 27 Fighter Wing.
