Eric Spitty – SCC

“My name is Eric Spitty and I am a member of the Mescalero Apache Tribe in Otero County. I have been a Democrat since I first learned about politics in middle school. It wasn’t until the 2008 election when I started volunteering for the Democratic party. It is my vision to see more Native American communities become more engaged in local, state and federal elections. Through our grassroots efforts we can bring change to our communities, our state and our nation.”
