Nice to see the brillent GLCCC board could hire such a classy hore to lead it to the promised land.
Interesting how the slow Kiel Hoffman had "known for weeks about the Hays offer" and neglected to do anything.
Did Hoffman think no one would find out the new hore had accepted that job too?
Welcome to the 21st Century Hoffman...we can hope your term goes by warp speed...you bonehead.

Being a liar will put him right on track here! YOu'll fit in quite nicely with all of our elected officials and other high ranking government employees.

Hmmmmmmmmmm...... Talk about a PR nightmare for the LCCC.....lol

Looks like he told the chamber about the job offer in kansas, but left out one crucial tidbit....that he had accepted the job..oops! Obviously this guy knew that he had accepted two jobs. What exactly was he up to? Not the most honest and forthcoming thing to do. Makes you wonder...what else has this guy not been honest about??

Very good points. They all highlight the true ineptness of this GLCCC organization.
And the other story on Hays had that drunk clown Davin Lopez at MVEDA saying he's ready to partner with the newly hired liar and cheat.
Imagine what harm those two could do to the community.
That is unless Hoffman and the Nimrods at the GLCCC have the stones to fire Hays before he gets a chance to spend what little money the GLCCC has to start with.

I had always thought that the Chamber of Commerce was supposed to be a positive organization; however, the local and national organizations are destructive forces. I suppose the new CEO will ride into town packing his guys and using his "aggressive nature" to join the BIA executives in ruining our community.

I've always thought the name "Greater" Las Cruces Chamber of Commerce quite the funny oxymoron. In our 18 years here, the GLCofC has failed to impress. Now with all the secret campaign donations being solicited by the U.S. CofC, why should any business owner pay membership dues? Now I know why there are two other Chamber of Commerce entities in Las Cruces, the Hispano Chamber and the brand-new and growing Green Chamber of Commerce. THe present Chamber's "good ole boys" and its incompetence have driven away some very good businessmen and businesswomen.

Thanks for wearing the sunglasses. Without them, your face looks just like your other end.

Perfect. Now watch the Greater Lost Crosses Chamber of Conners muddle their way out of this one. In real life the guy would be shown the door instantly. In stoopidville the CofC will need at least a month to further muck it up, embarrass the community and prove their general ineptness. Someone run and get the big shovel.

Obviously a really good guy. Don't we have any rich white guys here in New Mexico that could do the "job" just as well? Guess not.

Clearly the board was not engaged and nobody bothered to google this guy. I do agree, he will fit in nicely with the locally elected and appointed officials. The name of the game around here is to bring in people who can perpetuate the corruption and keep the little kingdoms as intact as possible. Yessir.. this guy is as dishonest as anyone else around here. He will fit right in.

Does this not make Mr. Allen a perfect candidate to buy a house from Laura Conniff? They both seem to think the laws are for everyone but them. Perhaps a "Champagne Brunch" for the first chamber of commerce chief to hold that title in two states. I am sure most of the good ole boys will be there!

Oooooops. http://www.hdnews.net/Story/chamber100610

Looks like the doofus committee didn't do their background checks or their vetting. I'd bet this guy couldn't spell Hispanic or minority to save his job.
