Martinez promised independent reviews

Then Gubernatorial Candidate Susana Martinez visited Rep Janice Arnold-Jones' Saturday mornings discussion group on July 10, 2010.

I asked her if she would support independent reviews that report to the public record, of governmental agencies. She said yes, over and over.

It went like this;

“My name is Ched MacQuigg. I write Diogenes’ Six. I’m wondering if you would support having independent reviewers come into state government, like efficiency experts …”
“Yes,“ Martinez said.

"so we’re not asking department directors, show us the inefficiencies in your department,“ MacQuigg said.
“Would you support having truly independent…,“ MacQuigg said.
“Yes,“ Martinez said.

“people come in examine the state government, then report directly to the public record,“ MacQuigg said.
“Yes, just this week I had spoken to someone who does just that for private companies as well as government and absolutely," Martinez said.“Yes I would.”

In summary; will you support independent investigations of government looking for waste due to corruption and incompetence and authorize the investigators to report directly to the public record and not only to those whose character and competence are under investigation?
"yes", "yes", "yes", "yes I would."

Talk is cheap. It's time to walk the talk.

It is time to shine light on governmental waste and the practices that enable it.
