One of the first initiatives of Governor Susana Martinez and Cabinet Secretary-designate Jon Barela was to create the Office of Business Advocacy, a place where business owners and entrepreneurs can get help navigating the state’s inherent bureaucracies. The office opened on January 10, 2011, just days after Barela began his job as Secretary of the New Mexico’s Economic Development Department.
As a small-business owner, Barela was familiar with barriers – both within government and in the marketplace – that obstruct business development and impede job growth. His goal is to remove roadblocks and create an efficient route to building New Mexico’s economy one business at a time. The core mission of the business advocacy office is to advance New Mexico business by resolving regulatory and public policy issues that challenge business growth.
Economic Development Department advocates assigned to the Office of Business Advocacy act as caseworkers to solve issues such as delayed licenses, inspection problems and permit misunderstandings. Advocates check the status of applications and facilitate their movement through the system. Cases are not closed until issues are resolved.
