Finally, we have intellectually responsible professionals in such an important office.

I commend Governor Martinez for her insightful and skilled appointments.

Gov. Martinez is smart enough to know that people like John Hummer and Kent Evans were only on Richardson's boards and commissions to serve Bill Richardson and not the people of New Mexico. John Hummer fancies himself as a conservative Republican by hiding under the veil of opposing the wilderness act, but behind the scenes, he supports all the local liberals. Every Republican in town knows John Hummer was backing Diane Denish only so he could keep his seat on the commission. That didn't work out so well for you did it John?

"My greatest satisfaction has been the ability to travel and visit all four corners of the state," Hummer said

Using the state JET at the tax payers expense!

As a close friend of John Hummer I would like to set the record straight. There is no one in Las Cruces better yet no one in New Mexico who works as hard as John with his business and political interests to pad his own pocket inorder to advance his own agenda. Ask anyone who has ever done business with him. Now to think he is being considered to be the Director of Spaceport America.

Nice to see the arrogant and condescending John Hummer writing on Topix as Mike.

If this is not true, then "Mike" is one of Hummer's shills at Steinborn Inc. Realtors ..at least until the banks step in and take it back because of its horrific balance sheets.

As Amy often has said "John is a short man and I wish he would realize all the limitations that go with that. People just don't like a Napoleon or any of those complexes John has.

As far as his future, the only thing for which John Hummer is being considered is a one-way trip back to his Kansas...sooner than later.

You should bone up on your reading comprehension. Even though Mike is full of it, Mike was NOT stroking Hummer. Quite the opposite.

hate anyone who is successful and contributes to society. Some people hate politicians and appointees due to their real or percieved political affiliations. Some politicans and appointed officials deserve scrutiny and dislike, others do not. I think Hummer served his post well but I also think the new appointee might have more to bring to the table IF he has a background in leadership, corporate structure and negotiations to back it up.

Whether you like Hummer or not, I challenge all of his critics to demonstrate their own contributions to our state and community.

Ok, I saved my fellow taxpayers money by driving where I needed to go instead of wasting money flying.

Okay, you made your point..... somewhat.... kinda like Nancy Pelosi's jet huh? Or perhaps Gov Richardson (who bought that very jet to fly himself and entourage around the country while he campaigned for prez.) or perhaps our current President who in spite of our current economic status, takes numerous questionable trips that require multiple aircraft to transport special agents and armored vehicles... and maybe we should include scrutiny of our First Lady, who has taken vacations with her personal entourage, requiring a similar security detail.

The reality is that many but not all trips are justified, but they are justifiably questioned in the eyes of those who pay for them. It seems that the higher the position, the easier it is to justify those trips. Let's see how the next Transportation Commissioner does on travel expenses....

The bottom line is that unfortunately, taxpayers pay for a lot of transportation costs which could be justifiably contested.

What does that have to do with anything?

Numerous Las Cruces Politicians, State politicians and State Appointees were not born in Las Cruces or even the state of New Mexico.
