TRUTH WARNING – VOTERS BEWARE: Candidate for NM State Treasurer, John Wertheim, commented recently on his view of what is best for NM TAX DOLLARS in an email titled, “It’s Time to Invest in Progressive Values.” See the content HERE.

The NMBC warns NM voters that radical, liberal politicians who call themselves ‘progressive’ use the term ‘invest’ but what they really mean is ‘spend.’ We have seen repeatedly that the progressive platform is actually anti-business and detrimental to the state. What New Mexico needs is pro-business elected officials who will prudently use your tax dollars in order to minimize the amount you’re required to provide for government operations. What we don’t need is a State Treasurer who wants to ‘invest in progressive values’ that would destroy our future opportunity for prosperity. We Exist for Small Businesses: The NMBC works to ensure that New Mexico is a safe place to start and grow a business. We get involved by educating the voter on the hard facts. You can rest assured that if certain legislation or officials are threatening business in New Mexico, the NMBC will inform voters of the truth! Over the next few months, we will feature local businesses that provide job opportunities and important services to our state. Help support the NMBC by becoming a member TODAY.

Business Highlight: New Mexico American Fire Sprinkler Association Associate members and Members of the New Mexico Chapter American Fire Sprinkler Association (NMAFSA) contribute a tremendous amount to a company’s success. AFSA has outstanding training programs – online Fires Sprinkler eCampus, fitter correspondence courses, online Webinars, live traveling seminars and annual convention programs.

Looking for a job? Here is some information about job opportunities and the apprenticeship program provided through NMAFSA: Each year more towns insist on automatic fire sprinklers in more types of new construction. This has created a demand for skilled installers. Fire sprinkler installers save lives and protect people’s property.

A career in fire sprinklers is great for those already working in construction or who are returning from military service. Training both in the classroom and on the job is available and you don’t have to wait until you finish your training to get paid. The fire sprinkler industry provides many opportunities for advancement. Jobs range from crew foreman, system layout technicians, as well as project management.

As a fire sprinkler installer there is job security, great pay and the opportunity to earn while you learn – no experience necessary. For more information on the NMAFSA Apprenticeship program, please contact David Wilson at (505) 573-6712 or
