New Mexicans did pretty well on ballot questions

 New Mexico voters did their usual good job separating the wheat from the chaff when it came to the questions at the end of the November ballot.
Predictably, they gave a sound thrashing to two constitutional amendments designed to give politicians a longer leash. They gave our veterans a couple more breaks. And they sent a message to our higher education system that it is getting out of hand.
In an era of “throw the bums out,” it is inconceivable that voters would allow county commissioners who have served two four-year terms to run for a third term.
Some small counties argued that they couldn’t find enough people to run. If that’s the case, since we’re already talking about consolidating state agencies and school districts, maybe we should add small counties to that list.
The other defeated amendment in the politico category would have allowed the governor to appoint current legislators to government jobs. That is currently an issue because it prevents Gov.-Elect Martinez from appointing any current legislators to her cabinet.
