The 2017 New Mexico legislative session will be starting soon and based on the bills that have been pre-filed, elected officials are full of ideas on how to change our lives through legislation. Do YOU want to see more regulation, increased taxes and more money taken from our permanent funds for an education system that needs a complete overhaul before it needs more money? From what we’ve heard, the answer is a resounding ‘No!’
NMBC recently conducted a survey, asking for your input on topics such as minimum wage increases, the state budget, addressing crime, tax reform and more. We got some amazing responses and thoughtful feedback that we’ll be sharing at the BASH (Business and Social Hour) on January 12.
Year in Review: Thanks to you, 2014 was an exceptional year for the NMBC! We enjoyed hosting some of the best BASH events, made new friends, and set a new record for success in our voter education efforts. Voters agreed that pro-business candidates were the way to go this year and agreed with the NMBC 97 percent of the 32 races in which we provided them with the facts. That brings our overall record to an unprecedented 85 percent in 121 races since we began operations in 2009!
The BASH (Business and Social Hour) is TODAY! Our keynote speaker is Mark Mechler, President of Citizens for Self-Governance (CSG), will address the question, “Why do people who want to raid the permanent fund dislike our children?” Mark is a regular contributor on Fox News, Fox Business and many other media outlets across the political spectrum. You will not want to miss the information that Mark will bring out today!
Don’t miss the last BASH (Business and Social Hour) until November! Join us on June 27, 2013 for the New Mexico Business Coalition (NMBC) ‘Job Interviews’ for the position of Albuquerque Mayor at the NMBC BASH. Current Mayor, R.J. Berry, and candidates Pete Dinelli and Paul Heh have confirmed their interviews at the BASH.
