How is it that the State Fair Commission hasn't met since last December? I heard about that and called the Expo Offices today and the receptionist told me that no state fair commissioners have been appointed since Governor Martinez took office. Others tell me that there are three holdovers from the Richardson Administration and one new one. Which makes four of seven seats filled. I wonder how many other boards and commissions are in the same boat. Maybe someone in the mainstream media could check that out.
The state's revenue picture is improving as energy revenues continue to increase from state oil and gas production taxes. At the same time the dirty energy boys are spending heaps of money on TV saying everyone will lose their jobs in New Mexico if their taxes and subsidies are messed with. These guys are immoral plain and simple and they are getting poor people to support them with their fear mongering.
