  Commentary: Senate Democrats today called on Governor Susana Martinez to convene the New Mexico Legislature in an emergency special session to fix the quickly expanding budget deficit that has resulted from plummeting state revenues. A new report last week revealed that the State spent between $150 – $200 million more than it had budgeted in the fiscal year that just ended, and the year ahead looks even worse.

  Commentary:  On Thursday, July 28th, NM Comunidades en Accion y de Fe (CAFé) leaders from Vado will receive over 60 tons of recycled roofing shingle material to begin paving three of their own roads, Cebolla Lane, Tarin Road, and Coleman Road.  A local recycling company out of El Paso, TX partnered with the regional EPA office to donate the materials to Vado leaders, who have been tirelessly organizing for the past 9 months to bring much deserved attention to the dangerous lack of infrastructure in their neighborhoods.  While the material is being donated, community members will do all of

H.L. Mencken would have loved the Republican convention

  Commentary: At this writing, the Republican National Convention is bumbling along, veering off script and exposing the seething divisions of the national party while the Democratic Party prepares to steal the news cycle with Hillary Clinton's running mate and their own convention. Throughout the week, many of us who are tasked with writing about politics have remembered H.L. Mencken.

 Commentary: Some reflections on recent events. 

The Republican Convention's first night reminded me of a B-movie in which a businessman gets nominated for president. Trump and his wife looked the parts, but B-pictures rarely had top stars. Mr. and Mrs. Trump were a little wooden. Not quite convincing.

Is Gary Johnson a Fiscal Conservative?

Jul 22, 2016

 Commentary: Donald Trump tried hard to consolidate his “base” in Cleveland. Nonetheless, fiscally-conservative Republicans, many of whom are concerned about the rhetoric and likely policy proposals of their party's standard-bearer, may be looking for viable alternatives.

Former New Mexico governor and current Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson is likely their only alternative (assuming that disaffected Trump supporters don't shift to Hillary Clinton).
