The gov's responsibility is the health and well being of the citizens of her state, not the health and well being of corporations. She has quickly been unveiled as a puppet of the oil and gas industry. Politically she is nothing more than a facist and will likely go down in history as one of the worst gov's in state history. She is a prime example of "be careful what you wish for".

It's funny I think our newly elected Governor has done more good in her whole whopping few days in office than our current president has done in his two years in office.

Or a prime example of "keep your campaign promises" which I have rarely, if ever seen a poltician do with as much zealous! Obiously the people who elected her cared a lot more about the econmony in NM, than enviormental issues.
All I can say is WTG!! Keep it up!

So Skeptic, the "health and well being" of New Mexico citizens does not include having a job? I guess we all can have "clean" air to breath as we starve to death!

You folks on the loony left are so full of it.

Joblessness and poverty are greater health threats to our citizens than corporations. Corporations are one of the loony left's biggest fictional boogeymen, used to foment class warfare in an attempt to divide and destroy our nation.

Tell us, how can a Governor who refuses to exert governmental authority by force be a "fascist"? If anything, she is the exact opposite of a fascist. You nuts label anyone who doesn't support your leftist agenda a "fascist", while urging government to use fascist techniques to implement policies you endorse.

The progressive left are the true fascists in our society today.

So far, Governor Martinez is a prime example of a person making good on her campaign promises, for the good of the people of New Mexico.

I say: "Bravo Governor Martinez! Thank you for putting common sense over political expediency."

Education Secretary from FLORIDA, New Prison Commissioner fron GRANTS, NM..... and as for the knuckle head that is bashing her about the envrinmental issues, and the responsibility of government to "protect the people", we all knew BEFORE the election that she was going to trashcan a bunch of the liberal crap that Richardson & Denish did in their administration....THAT IS WHAT SHE RAN ON! AND WHAT SHE WON ON! I love it....I can honestly say this to a LIBERAL.....

WE WON!, WE WON!, WE WON! G-E-T O-V-E-R I-T!

Well, if she does, maybe they'll do a better job than what was done before. From what I can see, she's already cleaning house, getting rid of all the dead weight and dust bunnies. So far so good!

Ladies and gentlemen of Dineh Power Authority,sharpen your pencils and dust off the old plans. It is time to restart the projosed development of Dine Power Plant at Burnham, NM. The power plant can be completed and fired-up during Martinez Administration. The doors have been reopened as long as Martinez will keep her thumbs on the State Environmental Department, who, together with Mr. Richardson have stalled the plans.

Really?

I've got a chunk of forested private land in New Mexico where I enjoy nature often..my nearest neighbors out there are a mile or more away...there are elk, deer, pronghorn, coyotes, mountain lions, etc. etc. I paid $8000 for it, and probably overpaid because it has access to electricity if I want it, but don't have it hooked up...others have paid less for twice as much land, one lady paid around $6000 for ten acres, but electricity, the only utility, is a couple miles away..one fellow paid around $200,000 for half a section...320 acres...complete with electricity, well, and old ranch house and barns...

Does that make us the "elite super rich"?

You crazy libs need to quit trying to destroy our nation with your class warfare BS. Thinking people are on to you...

Alright. Let those STEAM MACHINES run HARD. Let those Ball Mills grind that coal. Push all that COAL thru the BURNERS. Let that HEAT rise to the SUPERHEAT TUBES. Let those STEAM DRUMS get all that heat in the PENTHOUSE. And send the STEAM to the TURBINE. YEAH, sounds good. APS and PNM powerplants, let all NINE boilers run hard. Let the STEAM come out of the Smoke Stacks. $$$$$$$$$ IN the pockets.

I think our President is doing a good job cleaning up eight years of Bush's mess. It takes awhile to get it all cleaned up so he can do what he can for our Nation. Keep that in mind.

I agree the environmentalist can go overboard with rules and regulations but jobs are needed to keep us from starving. The environmentalist are rich people who want to keep the green in their backyard in spite of other people's needs. Keep that in mind also.
