The NMBC is a true grassroots operation that will educate individual voters about the candidates and issues in their district and motivate them to take that knowledge to the polls and vote.
It is the voter who will affect the change we need because educated voters will elect the best candidates when they understand the issues. Reaching those voters is where the NMBC will make a distinct difference in political races.
- How many government employees does it take to…..
How many U.S. Forrest Service employees does it take to run a chipper? While in northern New Mexico near Taos recently, NMBC came across the above scenario. Apparently, it takes nine federal workers to handle feeding pine branches into a wood chipper. NMBC spends a lot of time talking about the need to reduce dependence on government programs in New Mexico. The other half of the equation is reducing government dependence on a bottomless pit of tax dollars that encourages waste and a ‘spend it so we can get more next year’ mentality.

- Good Corporate Neighbors and ‘Where’s the Beef?’
ExxonMobil shows what it means to be a good corporate neighbor, going above and beyond to support New Mexico's higher education. In a generous move, ExxonMobil and their employees have donated almost $200,000 to higher education institutions in New Mexico. Education is one of the most important tools we can use in creating a better state for all our citizens. Thank you ExxonMobil for standing with New Mexico! You can read more about this generous donation here.
- Remembering Our Fallen Heroes
Home of the free because of the brave, may we never forget that freedom isn’t free.
We are grateful to live in a country that was founded on freedom and opportunity for all. Beginning today, with the formal holiday on Monday, many will enjoy time off from work in observance of Memorial Day. As for New Mexico Business Coalition, our office will be closed on Monday.
We hope you will join us as we celebrate, remembering those men and women in uniform who have died defending our freedom. NMBC wishes you a restful, fun and safe Memorial Day spent with loved ones and filled with appreciation for the sacrifices others have made.
- Just Breathe …. and Vote!
Special Session starts tomorrow: There’s been a lot finger-pointing, name-calling, and postcard mailers with bad information over the past two months. Now, it’s time to take a breath, pray for a short and successful session, and move on to productive business!
We should be New Mexicans first with the desire to move our state from its dismal statistics to the greatness we all know is achievable. We won’t get there with animosity and blaming. Take the time – right now – to send an encouraging note to your senator and representative and tell them you would like to see a short special session that ends with a budget that works for all New Mexicans.
