Why would the hippies care? This is community theater not government. You would have to enforce the laws and ordinances to be government. We all know the only enforcement here is traffic laws.

Herbie Mudhut was "one of their own".
Town councilors don't enforce the laws. Law enforcement enforces the laws. But no argument on law enforcement being a joke in this area. I think the unsolved murder count in Grant County is at 10 now. We are fast becoming the murder capital of southwest NM.

Congrats to Jose Ray and thanks for stepping up to the plate! Serve the people and the community. Remember as a role model to the youngsters, serve by doing the right thing, no twists and turns, and no slanting of the situations. Call them for what they are and respond appropriately. Anything less would be a disappointment. Best of luck in your new role!

Joe Ray Jr. will at least attempt to represent all constituents in District 3 and not just the liberal elitist cult that seeks to control our city government. We have more than enough liberal thinkers on our town council, e.g., Bettison and Thomson. Joe Ray, like Mike Morones, is an unknown at this time, but at least they are both hometown boys, and know most people who live here do not necessarily support the onslaught of greenies and their attempts to instill their philosophies into our way of life.

With Ray, I believe we have balance on the council. The Mayor will be the key swing vote on many of the liberal/elitist attempts to force their thinking/regulations into town policies.
