Governor Martinez orders sale of NM state jet

The new governor's future is not up in the air. Gov. Susana Martinez said Monday she had ordered the sale of the state's "luxury" jet, an eight-seat 2005 Cessna Citation Bravo that cost $5.5 million. Full Story

She might need the ok of the legislative body for the sale of state airplane. It belongs to the state not the Governor

Maybe our hefty Gov. Martinez can channel Sarah Palin?
It seems Sarah has a lot of experience doing the flashy things like selling planes but telling a lot of lies about the process and the results.

Meanwhile, we're still looking for evidence Mrs. Chuck Franco is not still campaigning, but attempting to learn with the help of a lot of aides...about how to govern something larger than a staff of 12.

And the recall effort quietly has gathered a strong head of steam.

well maybe richardson will bid on the plane now, since he liked to put his fat asss in it so much, and also hire the 2 chefs that were stuffing his fat mouth that susana fired.

I know that this, and the firing of Richardson's chefs, are mostly symbolic gestures.

But boy, they sure are nice symbolic gestures. We needed some reminder that Tubby Mc. North Korean's dictatorship is OVAH.

i think one of the reasons susana fired the chefs, was because she didnt want to end up getting fat also, and save us taxpayers alot of $$$$$$$$$$ she has kept her word on the budget cuts,

Yeah, putting a bunch of people out of work and on the unemployment line really helps out...oh hurray! How about the fatso take a cut in her $110,000+ salary. She wants sacrifices as long as other people are doing it and not her.

Yeah it's over idiot...only to have a new Tubby Mc 'I'm bought out by Big Oil from Texass' Martinez'

Susana Martinez putting people out of work for you! Yea, that will solve the problem. Now go tell her to make some of HER OWN sacrifices like maybe a cut in her $110,000+ salary. She still has a housekeeper and short order cook at the mansion (probably undocumented workers). So what happened with the "The first gentleman makes a mean bologna sandwich" bullshit? Oh, the short order cook will get that Susana...hubby is out playing golf.

Yeah, sell that 5.5 million dollar jet on E-Bay for $12.99. Great deal for the Citizens Sue. If you don't want it and I am sure you really do want it, right Sue..... Why not donate the plane to Lifeline an organ transplant service? Do some good, eh!
