I remember that after leaving office of Mayor of Albuquerque never being invited to the projects that were started under my term when they were dedicated. The one that hurt was the major addition to the Albuquerque Museum that I worked for and passed in a bond issue. Neither Mayor Chavez or the Board of the Museum bothered to call with an invite. But that is politics. The sad thing is that Susanna Martinez will put her name on plaque at the space port when she had little to do with its inception or vision of the future and in fact started down a road to derail the project as best she could. Just like Marty Chavez put his name on the Isoptopes Stadium when he had nothing to do with it.
Still, most people will remember that Governor Richardson did this Spaceport. And I have to admit many people remember I did the baseball stadium.
