Way to go Ken - like you we have no faith in the City of Las Cruces Leadership, absolutely none in the City Council.

You fools will spend spend spend until this windfall is spent and then beg for more.

Until City Leadership stops taking 6 to 7% raises while the worker bees get 1.25 which are erased by
PERA and medical insurance cost increases (Thanks

“Close the Borders”

Until the city government stops construction of buildings that are monuments, then they should get no extra taxes.

The Convention Center is a complete waste. The Aquatic Center is nothing but an indoor splash pool. City Hall has more open space than should be expected.

Stop the madness, rein in spending. Show you can live within a budget like we all have to do.

Then I might allow myself to vote a tax increase.

Despite the sham of public meetings - these clownbots are going to ram the tax down the taxpayer throats.
This is the same organization that touts Ethics yet awards a 6-7% pay increase for the Executives and Departement Heads while giving the rank and file a 1.25% increase - now how is that ethical
Especially when a large percentage of your employees qualify for food stamps and assistance.
