They just announced the evacuation of Los Alamos because of a major fire. The Governor needs to act quickly to ban fireworks, or New Mexicans will face even more disasters. We require an Executive Order now. Contact the Governor.

In 2002 Governor Gary Johnson issued an executive order asking all municipalities to consider banning the use of all fireworks for Fourth of July, even those permitted by statute, due to extreme drought conditions.

So why can’t Governor Martinez do this.

Fill your tub with water and crawl into it. July 4th is nearly always a very dry part of the summer and this summer is no different. So quit whining.

Frankly, I don't care about the politics involved. Fireworks right now are a ridiculous thought. There are too many idiots that mishandle them and in return our firefighters have to come to the rescue. What a waste! Common sense should prevail. But.....

If Gov Martinez does not have the power to override a state statute in extremely dangerous drought conditions, there is something seriously wrong with the politics of this state. The legislators did not want to address the seriousness of this issue, so vote these loons out of office!
