Whose call is it?

When the legislature convenes in January, it will be in response to a call from the governor.

Governor Bill Richardson
will tell us, what it is
that we will talk about.

You can bet that rooting out corruption in state government will not be on his list of things to talk about.

How does that sit with you?

Perhaps you disagree with me on the width and depth of public corruption and incompetence in New Mexico State Government. Perhaps you disagree on the problem or the cure.

But if you concede that there is any public corruption and incompetence at all, why should we have to put up with it, on the second day the legislature meets.

On day two, our state government could be a model for the free world, of transparent accountability.

If on day one, those who represent us, put the public best interests at the top of their list.

Whose call is it, what will be talked about on day one?
