Imagine you are a economic development specialist sent to New Mexico to scope out the possibility of bringing a business to Albuquerque. You pick up the Albuquerque Journal and start reading. The first thing you see is an item about how New Mexico school teachers are leaving their profession because they are not paid enough. And then you read a story about how basic constitutional rights are being denied because the Public Defenders Office is underfunded and representation in court is doubtful. Then you read that the Governor and divided legislature can't even pass capital outlay measures to fix roads and infrastructure, thanks to a right wing emergence in the House of Representatives.
