In Anticipation of Governor Martinez’s State-of-the-State Address, DPNM Wants to Welcome the Governor to New Mexico

While Governor Martinez has been traveling outside of New Mexico, pursuing a future national political career and begging for campaign funds…

This is the New Mexico this Governor has Created in Just 3 Years:

  • Most partisan NM Governor ever elected with no desire or interest in working together to improve lives of 2 million residents
  • Martinez ranked 49th of all Governors in job creation
  • Ranked near the lowest – 42nd in the nation – in projected job growth for 2014 (PEW Foundation)
  • Still lacking approximately 40,000 jobs from its pre-recession levels 
  • 50th in nation for the overall well-being of children (Annie E. Casey Foundation)
  • 1st in nation for child hunger; 2nd in nation for adult hunger (Feeding America study)
  • Worst New Mexico economy in 80 years, huge job and population losses, record commercial real estate vacancies
  • No viable education policies: same re-treads that have failed in state after state; then declared war on teachers
  • Directed HSD Secretary to shut down 15 behavioral health providers; then outsourced to Arizona companies to do same services
  • No plan for drought
  • No plan or vision for New Mexico’s future

Governor Martinez, this is the state-of-the-state under your leadership.
