Meet Jane

The Honorable Jane Powdrell-Culbert, a Republican and Native New Mexican was elected to the New Mexico House of Representatives, Sandoval County’s District 44 in 2002. She is the first African American in the state’s history to be elected as a Republican and is now serving her 10th term.

Rep. Powdrell-Culbert is currently serving on the Business and Industry Committee and is the lead for the Republican members of the committee. From 2014 to 2016, she served as Chairwoman of the Business and Employment Committee; Chairwoman for the NM Finance Authority Oversight; and past member of the Government and Indian Affairs Committee. Her interim committees are as follows: Investment Oversight, Radio and Hazard Waste, Infrastructure and Road Sub-Committee, Veteran Affairs, Legislative Council, and the New Mexico Finance Authority Oversight, Rural and Economic Development.

Jane has also served on numerous national organizations’ boards, state boards, and committees before becoming a legislator. And that’s what UNM, Albuquerque High School, the love and guidance from her parents, and the South Broadway Community did for her. It taught her to never quit because the odds are not always going to be in her favor. Faith goes a long way; believe in your dreams and treat people like you want to be treated. Be honest, and finally, “You must stand for something, or you’ll accept anything”. Today, it is great to be a ‘Lobo’ and of course a ‘Bull Dog’.

Rep. Jane Powdrell-Culbert is a graduate of the University of New Mexico, with a degree in Recreation Programs and Administration and Public Administration. Rep. Jane Powdrell-Culbert was a single parent, raising her three nieces after the death of their mother. She has been married to Colonel Clarence Culbert, Jr. for 29 years. Colonel Culbert retired from the US Army in 2005 after serving over 28 years.
