A bold forecast of things to come

-A A +A

SANTA FE — Happy New Year. Here’s a toast to it being a happier year than this past one. Actually the entire decade has been pretty grim in many ways. Let’s hope this decade is an improvement.

In keeping with tradition, herewith are some predictions about what may be in store for our state in the coming year.

This year will be another uncertain one as far as our leadership is concerned. It was during the opening week of January 2009 that Gov. Bill Richardson announced he wouldn’t be leaving for Washington.

The governor’s announcement led to a year of speculation about what would happen next. It is easy to predict the speculation will continue.

Despite that speculation, I predict Gov. Richardson will remain in office through the final year of his term. After all, that’s what he told us and, so far, he’s kept his word longer than Brett Favre or Urban Meyer.

Lt. Gov. Diane Denish will best former state GOP Chairman Allen Weh in the November gubernatorial election. The lieutenant governor race remains too unpredictable on both sides.

So far, U.S. Rep. Martin Heinrich appears to be making the right moves to stay in his 1st Congressional District office. The 2nd Congressional District race, down south, appears to be another close one that can go either way.
