Should we shame Governor Susana Martinez for her lack of leadership skills? Yes, we should. Did she ever try to hammer out some compromises amongst the partisans in the Legislature, which ended with no capital outlay bills?
This is on her as much as the leadership in the houses. She reigns over chaos. Watch your highways, bridges and infrastructure fall apart. No wonder we are now number 2 in poverty rates. When even government fails to provide jobs, then there is something wrong with the leadership. I suspect the guys who run the cleaning crews in the Capitol are showing more leadership that her by just making sure there is toilet paper available.
Did the Governor ever visit the chambers and gather together the Dems and GOP and say, “Lets try and meet each other half way on getting some bills passed? No, from what I hear she didn’t. Probably because she and her rightwing handlers never feel they need to meet someone halfway either. Maybe they will go for 15%, but halfway…nah.
Damn, how did the Land of Enchantment turn into the Land of the Hopeless. We really don't deserve this.
A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.
