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.

- Proposed GRT Tax Increase
Did you hear about the proposed City of Albuquerque tax increase? It's true, ABQ City Councilors Trudy Jones and Ken Sanchez have proposed a $55 million dollar (estimated per year) gross receipts tax increase. As pointed out in the Rich States, Poor States book, areas that insist on raising taxes end up losing their greatest resource---their people---resulting with bigger budget problems than before taxes were raised. Better management of tax dollars, not higher taxes are what is needed.
The legislation will be introduced today, 2-21-18 at the ABQ City Council meeting. If councilors pass the tax increase ordinance before April, the tax will start on July 1. You can let the councilors know how you feel HERE.
