This had to have been posted by the staff of the museum!!!!The City Council of Ruidoso Downs would like the people to believe they support the museum with thousands of tax payer dollars - NOT!!! If it wasn't for the Hubbard Museum Foundation, the museum could not operate - period! The city has cut staff and then cut salaries of the remaining staff at the museum to "balance the budget". If a person was to check real deep, they would find out the city does NOT support the museum much at all. They are hoping it fails and are doing everything in their power to see that this happens. While the office staff at the city receive their salary increases because of the "extra work" that the museum burdens them with - the staff at the museum (who actually does all the work) gets the shaft!!! Don't believe me??? It's public record!
Because anyone who comes to the council meetings knows that dispite the protests from some of the citizens over the last 8 years the city has done every thing to keep it afloat.
The truth is even with the Hubard money and the cuts that have been made the City just cannot afford to heep it running.
The mayor did however make a big mistake when He did not
accept their offer to resign.,
