Representative David Adkins serves the westside Albuquerque, New Mexico area of District 29. This growing area includes many young families as well as retirees. It extends north to the Bernalillo County line, south along Unser Blvd to I-40, and west to the Rio Puerco.

A local business owner, military veteran, and a pastor, David’s experiences give him passion and leadership in serving his constituents in the New Mexico State House. He brings a strong work ethic, collaboration, and dedication to his role in public service.

Among the key issues that he has worked to improve are increasing employment opportunities, creating a safer community, improving education, serving our veterans, and protecting vulnerable New Mexicans.

In his first term in the State House, he helped pass a bill to allow judges to deny bail to certain defendants, worked on a number of pro-business bills, and carried bills to continue additional instruction for K-3 students in disadvantaged schools as well as standardizing college credit granted to military members for their in-service training.
