Economy Down & Heroes Up!

Bad News for New Mexico: In a recent Op-Ed by Representative Jimmie Hall, he discussed the state of New Mexico's economic rankings, which are dim in almost all areas. The decline in jobs, for example, from April 2013 to April 2014 was 4,400 jobs. Likewise, from 2008 to 2013, 15 counties lost population and the increase in New Mexican personal income ranked 48th in the country.

The list of bad news goes on, so the big question is: How can we improve New Mexico? The answer: “NM needs to elect more pro-business officials who are willing to work for the good of the state and not just follow a specific party agenda.” Here is a great example of the leadership New Mexico needs in an Op-Ed by Bernalillo County Commissioner Wayne Johnson.

Speaking of leadership: Join us on August 7th for a luncheon at the Albuquerque Country Club as the New Mexico Business Coalition (NMBC) and Co-Host, New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association celebrate some NMBC Heroes. The 2014 NMBC Hero of the Year, Lt. Governor John Sanchez and other NM Heroes will be honored.

The keynote speaker for this event is Mark Meckler, President and Founder of Citizens for Self-Governance. Mark loves to ‘tell it like it is’ and promises to provide some great commentary on local and national issues important to every one of us!
