Ah, the men in Susana’s life. What to do with the first gentleman and the second fiddle? It’s a pesky problem.
The first gentleman, Chuck Franco, is unique in New Mexico politics. We haven’t had a first gentleman before.
Chuck is retired and so doesn’t have a job to go to every day. He was always at his wife’s side during the campaign, helping in anyway he could. But now what does he do?
Franco has volunteered to help his wife in any way he can. His areas of expertise are in law enforcement. He worked undercover much of that time so he’s good at playing other roles.
He’s also a hunter and fisherman so he has been appointed to the transition committee for the Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department and the Environment Department.
When Kathy Carruthers, also from Las Cruces, was first lady, she created a Governor’s Mansion Foundation to purchase and oversee the furniture, equipment and decorations in the public areas of the mansion.
The arrangement has worked well, saving the state time, effort and money.
The first ladies and foundation members have worked together well in identifying needs and making changes.
