SANTA FE — Our new governor has been accident prone recently. At least that is the way members of her administration have explained it. There were oversights, a typo, and a foggy memory.
A big uproar was created over the governor’s chief advisor, Jay McCleskey, obtaining a list of non-union teachers from the Public Education Department. That act created a number of controversies. First was preferential treatment. How did McCleskey get a request filled without putting it in writing?
Second, how did he get a list compiled by department staff when the rest of us are told if a document does not exist, they don’t have to go to the trouble of compiling one.
Third, why were some of the email communications on private accounts and the rest on Gov. Martinez’s political account? They should all have been on state government accounts.
Fourth, is it allowable to release names of teachers’ union membership status, along with their school email addresses?
It didn’t take long for lawmakers to start calling for investigations of state business being conducted through private email.
