[WATCH] Sandoval County commission takes first steps to enact Koch anti-union law; right-to-work fights move from Roundhouse to counties
October 16, 2017
We reported earlier this year about the Koch Brothers and Americans For Prosperity and their meddling in ALL levels of New Mexico politics.
An update to the current situation of their involvement in things they shouldn’t be involved in shows that Sandoval County is the current target for a Right-To-Work ordinance to be forced onto New Mexican families.
Late last week, the Sandoval County Commission held a heavily attended meeting about imposing a county level Right-To-Work ordinance. Thursday night’s meeting was filled with supporters from Sandoval County at large, including Representative Damon Ely who spoke in opposition to Right-To-Work, emphasizing the educational opportunities and fair wages that unions provide in a state in dire need of these things.

I went to bed Sunday night thinking two people had been shot in an active shooter situation in my hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. I didn’t give the situation much thought – active shooter situations are an almost daily occurrence in the U.S. In fact, 273 people have been killed in mass shootings in the U.S. in just the past 280 days, according to the Gun Violence Archive.
I woke up this morning to the worst mass shooting that has ever occurred in our great Republic. As I write this, almost 60 souls are known to have perished, with an almost inconceivable 515 additional people wounded. My city was massacred.

$1500 in funding cuts (cost increases) for New Mexico plans? or,
Taking Medicaid money from NM to give to Texas to reward TX for not expanding Medicaid to help the poor.
We’ll let you decide…
