What public? Small crowd for state reps

-A A +A
By Katy Korkos

The turnout was small at the Town Hall meeting with Rep. Jeannette Wallace, R-Los Alamos, Sandoval and Santa Fe, and Sen. Richard Martinez, D-Los Alamos, Rio Arriba and Santa Fe, but that meant those who did attend had good access to the elected officials. Every question from the audience was thoroughly answered in a relaxed setting in Fuller Lodge Thursday evening.Wallace has been elected nine times to serve her district. Wallace and Martinez are both planning to run for re-election in 2008, and circulated nominating sheets at Thursday’s meeting.Wallace said she loves her job. Even though the legislative sessions are part-time, her job is year-round and support staff is only provided while the legislature is in session. The only thing she would change about the job is that “someday I would like to have part-time help.” Wallace expects ethics, health care and education to be major topics in the upcoming legislative session, which begins in January.Martinez outlined his career in public service, where he has worked in city, county, and state government as well as being a magistrate court judge for 14 years before running for the New Mexico Senate.
