Let us hope that we did not get a bunch of wantwits this time... I feel confident that there may very well be a change in attitudes... I am really happy that the encumbunt lost... first on the agenda is to know that oil revenues for the state are falling, and that The Lake and our mountains to the west and within the county provide us with more tax revenues than the downtown galleries and thrift shops... and there has to be a concerted effort to reconnect with Las Cruces and El Paso as it was when our local economy thrived on that business...
