“I want to remain in New Mexico and become a gentleman rancher.” That is Gov. Bill Richardson’s latest life-after-governor pronouncement.
It occurred recently as part of remarks the governor made thanking the Governor’s Mansion Foundation for its efforts in furnishing the public areas of our governor’s mansion.
First Lady Barbara Richardson also expressed thanks and ended her remarks saying the couple plans to remain our neighbors, perhaps within a few blocks of the mansion.
There go all my uneducated guesses about both of them having New Mexico in their rear view mirror. Of course, this may not be the final word but it came less than a month from their moving out date.
We heard Gov. Richardson say for years that he had no interest in running for president or vice president. But maybe he is closer to the truth this time.
Richardson loves to ride and hunt. He can do that while serving on corporate boards and accepting speaking engagements, which bring in a nice income. He recently re-expressed his lack of interest in heading the Motion Picture Association.
