The strategy thing is that leaders must figure out the strategy. The strategy thing itself means making the best possible use of resources. But people must pose the choices, sell those choices to everyone involved and then execute.
For New Mexico’s state government we do have a strategy of sorts. Whether this strategy offers the best possible use of our resources is another question entirely. The strategy comes from a committee, the Legislative Finance Committee. Strategies from committees are by definition less than ideal. Even so, this is what we have.
In the “2013 Post-Session Review,” published in May, the LFC said, “The LFC’s FY14 budget guidelines proposed a balanced approach of maintaining general fund reserves above 10 percent while prioritizing services for education, early childhood investment, public health and safety, and protections for vulnerable citizens.”
Recommendations from Gov. Susana Martinez “were strikingly similar.”
The state’s strategy appears to be doing pretty much what we’ve been doing.
