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.
- June 28: Energy Week, NMBC manufacturer awarded, and upcoming events
Energy Week: President Donald Trump plans to talk about surging U.S. exports of oil and natural gas during a week of events aimed at highlighting the country’s growing energy dominance. “The fact that we’re no longer in the age of energy scarcity -- that we’re in the age of energy abundance -- positions the United States in a totally different place,” said Dave Banks, a special assistant to the president for international energy. “This gives access to affordable, reliable energy in the United States, and gives the U.S. a major competitive advantage.” Read more from Bloomberg.com HERE.
- Courage, strength and action
It requires courage and strength to take bold action, and that’s exactly what New Mexico needs to change our path. NMBC is proud to see the recent action taken by two Sandoval County Commissioners, Jay Block and David Heil, who proposed a Right to Work ordinance on 6/15/17. A draft of the ordinance will be available at a later date.

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.
