About Sharon McDonald

  • To be the voice that connects you with all of the imperative information that you have the right to know.
  • Work towards making our neighborhoods safe and offer opportunities for creativity, diversity, and mobility.

To celebrate our rich and multicultural community by changing the perception of our neighborhoods into a more attractive place for new residents and businesses.

I was raised in Alamogordo and attended school in this community from elementary to high school.  I graduated from Alamogordo High School and attended Western New Mexico University for one and half years, I continued my education while working full time and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Indiana University (SB).

I married a resident of Alamogordo.   Edward McDonald and I grew up here together.  We have five children,  ten grandchildren and a generation to come that will forever keep us young at heart.

 As a resident of Alamogordo, New Mexico, you always have an extended family including neighbors, classmates, church members, old and new friends from near and far. They are people you never forget and make this community an amazing place to get together for reunions.  We always pick up where we left off and have a great time.  

My professional experiences include a little bit of everything from clerical to a manager of employee benefits.  I find that helping people makes a job worth doing.

I have devoted my time and energy to organizations that help our community, schools, businesses, families, children, and education for a more resilient town.  I love working hard for the citizens of District 5 to help beautify our neighborhoods.  I enjoy working the polls at election time and attending Chamber of Commerce meetings, just to know what is happening with people around our community.  I was involved with the 2020 Census, working with people throughout the state as well as with the Otero Census Committee in Alamogordo.

I love to walk, watch sports, travel, hang out with family and friends and enjoy good food

I would like to know:

  • How do you see District 5?
  • What improvements would you like to see in District 5?
  • What suggestions do you have for District 5?
