Gov. Martinez makes most influential list

-A A +A
By Jay Miller

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez has been named to Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. That’s a big deal as far as I’m concerned.
But it hasn’t seemed to mean much to others in the news business. Other than short reports saying it happened, the only opinion I have noticed was in Joe Monahan’s blog last Friday. Obviously I don’t get around to reading all blogs but I expected to see much more by four days after our governor’s honor.
Most of you won’t be reading this for another four days so maybe the news business will have noticed by then. Obviously Time magazine isn’t the last word on who is important in this world but I saw part of an interview with the editor who put the list together.
He said the staff working on the project tried to spread the recognition among as many new people as possible each year. Obviously, the president of the United States is going to be included every year, but not most of the rest of the Top 100.
Others chosen in the “Leaders” category were Joe Biden, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, the only other governor chosen this year. The influential Christie has been picked before.
