Sanchez visits LA

Politics > Lieutenant Governor meets with constituents and county officials

By Tris DeRoma

Sometimes, you don’t have to go to Santa Fe to get your voice heard, sometimes, Santa Fe comes to you.
At least, that was the case Thursday when Lt. Gov. John Sanchez did one of his annual “Mobile Office” visits to Los Alamos. From 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at the Mesa Public Library Thursday morning, residents as well as town leaders showed up in the library’s upstairs meeting rooms to meet with Sanchez and tell him what was on their minds.
According to Sanchez, education and the economy were the main issues.
“My mobile office days are the best part of being Lt. Governor,” Sanchez said. “It gets me out of the state capitol and into the local communities where I get to hear directly from our bosses, which are the citizens of this state.”
According to Sanchez not only did residents compliment Martinez’ administration for introducing tax cuts, programs to help diversify the economy as well as improvements to the state’s infrastructure, especially where water supply is concerned, but they also offered “suggestions” as well.
One of the hot topics on residents’ minds was public education, and the controversies surrounding the student and teacher evaluation programs introduced by Education Secretary Hanna Skandera.
