Pete Dinelli's candidacy announcement didn't revolve on future projects that would make this a better city. He was just concerned about the settling of lawsuits.
I wonder if New Mexico will no longer produce politicians that are capable of the whole vision thing. Bill Richardson could do it with the Rail Runner and Space Port. Yeah they were expensive but they will pay many dividends in the future. Just like the Isotopes Stadium and a refurbished and now politically abandoned city core thanks to Marty Chavez and Mayor Berry.
Governor Martinez has not shown one iota of originality in making this state's future look brighter. Where are her grand ideas? There are none.
So, in the upcoming Mayoral and Governor's race let's start demanding a few grand projects from the candidates. If they need some ideas because they can't think of any then I and any number of people could help. It isn't that hard and it is a lot more fun than raising money for Super Pacs.
Here is a quickie for Pete Dinelli. Let's get serious about an all purpose arena for downtown.
Here is one for the Governor's candidates. How about an economic development project that makes New Mexico the center of renewable energy component manufacturing in the United States. If the Governor of Alabama can travel to see Airbus and successfully get them to locate in his poor state, then why not have our Governor make some overt efforts too?
