Brian Egolf grew up in Santa Fe and ran for the State House, because he wants his kids to be able to raise their families here. He has been active in making our community a better place to live, following a long family tradition of service. In fact, his great-grandfather was a Santa Fe County delegate to the 1912 New Mexico Progressive Party convention. Today, Brian lives with his wife Kelly and daughters Cameron and Sidney in the house where he grew up.
Brian received a bachelors degree in diplomacy and public service from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. This education has helped Brian further develop his natural skills as an effective leader, negotiator, and consensus builder. While in Washington, Brian worked in the White House for President Bill Clinton and on President Clinton's 1996 reelection campaign. After serving in the White House, Brian worked at the United States Treasury Department and then moved to the office of Congressman Tom Udall. Representative Egolf currently serves as the NM House Democratic Leader.
