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.
GivingTuesday: Tax Deductible Donations for a Better New Mexico
The work done by New Mexico Business Coalition (NMBC) and our sister organization, Rebound New Mexico (RNM), is changing New Mexico. You can support that work with a tax-deductible contribution to RNM, which can also help your year-end tax planning!
NMBC and RNM exist because New Mexico needs a reasonable government that supports business operations – not hinders them. NMBC and RNM are nonpartisan grassroots coalitions that bring New Mexicans, like you, together to make that happen. While NMBC focuses on policy, accountability and voter education, RNM works to break the chain of generational poverty in New Mexico, empowering New Mexicans to achieve prosperity without dependence on government.
Thankful for an Abundance of Blessings
Excerpts from President John F. Kennedy’s Thanksgiving Message, 1961:
"I ask the head of each family to recount to his children the story of the first New England thanksgiving, thus to impress upon future generations the heritage of this nation born in toil, in danger, in purpose, and in the conviction that right and justice and freedom can, through man’s efforts, persevere and come to fruition with the blessing of God.
Make Your Vote Count for JOBS
When it comes to choosing candidates who favor private sector job growth over those who favor government growth, the choices are pretty clear when you have good information on hand. As the State Association Group for the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), NMBC is pleased to provide this valuable 2016 Voter Guide to help identify candidates who stand for free market job growth.
Setting the Record Straight – Hitting Some New Lows
Guilt by association? Some campaigns have hit new lows with pointless accusations that say nothing, are based on nothing and have no point.
Case in point: Elizabeth Thomson’s mailer against Christina Hall. The flier states, “If she goes to Santa Fe, Christina Hall will join Republicans who voted against hiring more police officers . . .”
Election and Ballot Issues
Constitutional Amendment on the November ballot – Support or Oppose?
The Constitutional Amendment (CA) has much to do with crime in New Mexico and is something every voter should carefully consider. The two basic issues that it covers are: 1) Keeping the worst felons incarcerated without the option for bail until their trial; and 2) Releasing many arrestees, without bail, if their case meets certain criteria.
