Seven months after his nomination as Economic Development Secretary, four months after his boss and state lawmakers failed to make jobs a priority in the legislative session, and one month after the state posted the first pathetic job growth after 32 straight months of losses, Jon Barela is traveling the state to hold job creation meetings.

He’s hit the ground walking.

It’s also four months after announcing the results of his task force to sound out small business people, which Lt. Gov. John Sanchez had already done back in December. Because the governor couldn’t wait to get Sanchez out of her hair, maybe his report didn’t filter down to Barela.

Meanwhile, the Association of Commerce and Industry, a reliable voice for business in the state, is advancing a jobs plan.
