  • $80M in the red is no way to start a fiscal year

    SANTA FE — As of July 1, New Mexico state government began fiscal year 2011 $80 million in the red, maybe. That’s what the Legislative Finance Committee is guessing.

    The first one, which begins today and runs through Sunday, features John Sullivan, Jr., the son of the church’s pastor, Rev. Jack Sullivan. Sullivan, Jr. will be accompanied by his wife, Sofia and Kolynn Hansen.
