It’s been a nice ride

-A A +A
By Jay Miller

This will be the final column of Inside the Capitol. I hope you have enjoyed the ride as much as I have.
Jeanette and I are moving to Scottsdale, Ariz., to be closer to our son, daughter and grandchildren. Although it is time for the move, we do it with heavy hearts.
We both were born in New Mexico. The longest I have been out of the state during my 75 years was for six weeks of Air National Guard basic training in San Antonio, Texas.
At least I won’t be deprived of exciting politics. Arizona has impeached one governor and sent another to prison. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio keeps the county correction system in constant turmoil with his summer outdoors lockups and pink underwear for everyone.
Recently, the president of the Senate stopped his car on a busy Phoenix freeway and threw all his girlfriend’s clothes out of the car. He then left her stranded at the side of the road. Republican senators soon voted him out of office. Later he resigned while being investigated by the Senate Ethics Committee. Of course, New Mexico has provided plenty of excitement during my 26 years of covering it. Gary Johnson was the most off-beat governor any state could ever have. New Mexico got to learn what a true Libertarian really was.
