Martinez declines to release schedules

-A A +A
By Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — Gov. Susana Martinez bills herself as the transparency governor, promoting her mandate that all state employee salaries be posted publicly, touting her support for a bill that would require agencies and elected bodies to post notices of their meetings 72 hours in advance and promising quick responses to requests for public records.

But open government advocates question whether Martinez is walking her talk.

Other than public appearances, Martinez’s office has declined to publicly release information about how she spends her work days on the taxpayers’ payroll. She refuses to release her travel schedules, whether it’s for state or political business. And even notification of her public appearances and press conferences, which are generally the only opportunity for the media to ask her questions without going through her handlers, often comes with just a few hours’ notice.

A recent request by The Associated Press for copies of correspondence between Martinez’s office, the New Mexico Environment Department and Los Alamos National Laboratory took nearly three months to fulfill.
