Commissioner Becenti-Aguilar reports her duties to her constituents around District 4 and to The Navajo Nation. Some key topics she discusses include issues concerning corporations, transportation, consumer relations, and utilities.
Commissioner Becenti-Aguilar helps constituents resolve consumer issues by making sure concerns are properly addressed by PRC staff. Her goal is to provide accessible, community-based public service. She views her work at the PRC as rewarding and she understands the need for her work at the grassroots level.
Commissioner Becenti-Aguilar frequently promotes and educates her constituents on Native American Tax Exemption for telecommunications, propane and other public utilities. Through her leadership, many Native Americans have already filled out Native American Tax Exemption forms across District 4.
“The economic impact of basic utility costs is a daunting obstacle for many Native Americans in New Mexico,” Commissioner Becenti-Aguilar said. “I am proud to help Native Americans who qualify for tax exemption save money for their families.”
