Elect Dave Tynan, Valencia County Commission  District 5, Tuesday November 3rd.



Acting with honesty, transparency and integrity for you.

My goals as Commissioner are to improve the quality of life for our communities, maintaining our agricultural heritage and country lifestyle.



My New Mexico story starts in 1915 when my great-grandfather, John Hornbaker homesteaded near Roy, NM.  My grandmother had vivid memories of her time in Roy, instilling a deep appreciation of New Mexico peoples, art and culture. 

My immediate family moved to New Mexico in 1958 to live in Las Vegas where I began school. In 1973, I returned to New Mexico with the United States Air Force, stationed at Kirtland AFB. I was Honorably Discharged as a Viet Nam Era Veteran in 1976.  Using the GI Bill, I attended UNM where I earned a Bachelors degree in Industrial Education in 1980. I graduated from Ball State University in 1981 with a Masters degree.  

I taught industrial arts for several years, then completed my professional career in engineering positions in 2017.  With job titles of teacher, buyer, engineer, manager and director, I have lead operations with up to 150 persons a day and managed multi-million dollar budgets and multi-year projects.

I am pragmatic and practical. I firmly believe that the issues and opportunities facing Valencia County are best acted upon without liberal or conservative labels, thereby arriving at the best outcomes for the citizens and communities of Valencia County.

As a Valencia County Commissioner, I will work to improve the quality of life for our communities. I will make a Valencia County Hospital a reality.

My concerns for Valencia County are balancing two competing forces; maintaining our agricultural heritage and country lifestyle, while embracing the changes that the 21st century brings.  

I settled my family in Bosque Farms in 1987 for the country lifestyle. My children attended Los Lunas schools and I have coached soccer and baseball in the community. I am proud of the rich immigrant, Hispanic and Native American cultural diversity in my family.

My hobbies include fly fishing, motorcycling, skiing and woodworking.

I ask for your vote June 2nd and November 3rd, 2020.
