Simple...the Council has found that Gov. Martinez cannot be corrupted like her predecessor, so they want her off!

She said in the campaign that she wanted the Gov off the board. Now it is all a "Democrat" idea?

I cant believe how ignorant the average New Mexico voter is. very few vote, and those that do dont know squat about the system or how it works... Even if it ws discussed in detail just recently.

It would appear that politics still dominate the SIC but maybe the Guv. can keep an eye them for at least two more years!

Yeah. Like Bill richardson did for the past 8? The whole problem is that there ARE politiicans on the board. They should be removed just like Susana said she was going to do.
We shoud loan those billons of dolars to businesses that are viable and will create jobs. Not to political cronies as is the norm. Get the politicians out of the business of loaning State money to their political buddies and into the business of promoting business and job growth.

too bad they didn't do that with the actual governor that was in charge of those investments that lost money for the state instead of the current govenor.

Thought that "King" Bill said he knew nothing of the investments, mainly the guy that lost so many millions of the state's money through bad investments. He knew nothing of this person.

After the horse has already left the burning barn; they decide to implement 'sensible' changes.

And why couldn't they do it when Fat Bill was in office? Because El Lardo was involved in pay to play, and outright graft during his time in office.

And people still apologize for the Fat Man, Bill Richardson; charisma doesn't make up for the sleaze.

Even the Obama administration didn't want him after they started a cursory background investigation, and vetting.

I knew it was bad when journalists in DC told me during the 2008 Election that Fat Bill had a bimbo eruption problem. The pay to play, and Carlos Fierro was just icing on the cake.
