4 DAYS TO GO!

Four more days to go and then I can talk about something besides the election on this blog. My volunteers and I are working hard in the final days.

Here you can see that even the family pets are out campaigning for me. Here our friends poodle diamond came out at 7:15 am to welcome commuters on their way to work.

I have seen many of you during this last rush of non-stop campaigning. We have had a lot of fun and a lot of support holding signs on street corners during rush hours, attending many large gatherings, appearing on radio shows, and hitting the door to door and phones to remind everyone to get out and vote while asking for support for my candidacy.

Tomorrow, Saturday June 3, 2006 is the last day to early vote and the polls will be open from 10 am to 6 pm. After that you will have to wait till election day the big 6-6-06 to cast your ballot. I ask for your support and please take 15 minutes and call your family and friends and ask them to cast their ballot for me on June 6.

So after you cast your ballot come join us on Tuesday June 6, 2006 at our election night party. It will be at the Fraternal Order of Police at 521 Airport Road from 7 pm to 11:30 pm. We will have up to date election results, great food and the band SOUL FIRE which is an excellent young band led by Lumbre Del Sol's Chris Abeyta' son. I know we are going to have a great time so come and join us. AND DON'T FORGET TO VOTE! SU VOTO ES SU VOZ !

I wish you the best of luck in the upcoming election and hope you will be elected to continue your proactive philosophy of managing Santa Fe County. However, one item I do have an issue with is the use of county-owned sheriff patrol vehicles. I do understand that deputies must commute from areas outside of Santa Fe County and you have provided the "benefit" of allowing them to use these vehicles for essentially personal use. In the past week, I have witnessed on two separate occasions, instances where sheriff deputy vehicles have been exceeding the posted speed limits. On I-25, I was passed by a sheriff county vehicle traveling at 85-90 mph in a non-emergency fashion. On US-285, I was also passed by a sheriff county vehicle traveling 75-80 mph in another non-emergency state. In both instances ~15-20 mph over the posted limit. Any deputy or county employee must uphold the law but also adhere to the law! There should be no double-standard! A badge does not provide free rein to abuse power. From my experiences, I draw the conclusion there is an abuse of this "vehicle benefit".

I agree with you that it is an abuse. I can only do something about it when it is reported. When you or others observe such behavior please call us immediatly and try to get the unit number located on each side or the license plate number. I do take action when I recieve complaints such as these. Thanks for your support.
