After Bill Richardson returned in 2002 from Washington D.C. and New York City and points foreign, hither and yon, to claim that big suite of offices on the fourth floor at the Roundhouse, most New Mexicans were more or less prepared for the frenzy that came home with their new governor.
Barely had he completed the oath of office before a gaggle of North Koreans materialized in Santa Fe seeking help with some difficulties they were having with Washington.
Eight years later, when Susana Martinez moved up to Santa Fe from Las Cruces to occupy the governor’s residence, most New Mexicans probably expected the former Doña Ana County district attorney to usher in an era of relative calm.
It just goes to show how fickle expectations can be.
During her more than two and a-half years in office, whatever record Martinez has amassed in the way of accomplishments, reforms and innovations remains modest.
But from the get-go Gov. Martinez and her administration have managed to foster sufficient political chatter and clatter to routinely arch eyebrows among rank-and-file New Mexico political junkies.
