REPUBLICAN PARTY OF NEW MEXICO OPPOSES CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS AND BOND MEASURES ON ELECTION BALLOT
AMENDMENTS HURT NEW MEXICO VOTERS WHILE THREE BOND MEASURES INCREASE STATE DEBT DURING CURRENT ECONOMIC CRISIS
On November 3rd, New Mexico voters will be asked to approve or reject two Constitutional Amendments and three bond measures. RPNM believes it’s in the public interest to oppose these statewide ballot measures.
Constitutional Amendment #1 (recommend no vote) allows the legislature to provide changes at the Public Regulation Commission to make it a three-member appointed Commission.
It’s a power grab for the governor.
The PRC regulates public utilities and rates. Currently five members are elected. This Amendment gives the governor more control over the PRC by appointing all three members; this would strip the Commission of its ability to truly protect utility ratepayers. This consolidates executive branch power and would influence the power of special interests. Approving this Question means the PRC could become engulfed in partisan politics and it will fail to protect the public.
Constitutional Amendment #2 (recommend no vote) asks voters to allow the legislature to change the dates of certain elections and terms for non-statewide officeholders.
This idea is to balance the number of elections each year, but it would lead to serious problems.
This Constitutional change would put the minority party at a disadvantage because so few people vote in local elections in non-presidential and gubernatorial election years. These changes would, in essence, manipulate the election process to better serve the majority party.
Three Bond Questions
There are also three Bond Questions on the election ballot this fall. They ask voters to approve total borrowing of approximately $200 million to improve higher and public education, tribal schools, libraries and senior citizen facilities.
While the Republican Party supports higher and public education, tribal schools, libraries and improvements for senior center facilities, these bond measures must be weighed against the economic and health crises along with the mismanagement our state currently faces. We must question whether approving the sale and issuance of $200 million in bonds makes economic sense at this critical time.
Given New Mexico’s economic crisis and budget troubles at this time, we believe it will not be prudent to burden future generations with more debt load. We believe each individual should decide whether it is wise to borrow such money.
During a time of such uncertainly and unemployment caused by COVID-19 and the Gov. Lujan Grisham’s response, now is not the appropriate time to borrow big and pay the price of future indebtedness.
While the bonds would pay for important items, New Mexico might need this money to fight the pandemic.

Progressives Take Over Democratic Party in New Mexico
Please see this short video at: https://vimeo.com/293632714
Before you vote, please look at this video about Progressives taking over the NM Democratic Party. Progressives are intolerant of other opinions, they are dividing us, they want to control the land and the people, they will destroy the culture and rich-heritage of New Mexico. Your children will be educated in the progressive education agenda to insure they control the future. Please think carefully before you vote.
The video “Progressives have taken over the Democrat Party” is brought you by New Mexico Turn Around (NMTA). NMTA is a nonpartisan, non-profit organization that is committed to investigating matters causing the state’s low rankings and then reporting the results of those investigations to New Mexicans. It does this in the hope that its efforts will assist New Mexico to become a state where children are well educated and where productive jobs are plentiful.
If you missed it, Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez was speaking on MSNBC and said, “There are no moderate Democrats left…” Of course, he caught himself in the midst of what he was saying and changed Democrats to Republicans. I guess that’s what they call a Freudian slip. Courtesy of “Freedom Outpost”.
The NM State Permanent Funds and Why It is a Terrible Idea to Raid these Funds
- NM state permanent funds are the source of the retirement pensions for both state employees and teachers.
- All tax payers will see their taxes increase by at least $1,200 if these funds are either depleted or severely reduced.
- Michelle Lujan Grisham has “no” authority to raid these funds. The legislature must pass by a majority a change to the percentage withdrawn.
