  • BPU head makes unprecedented move

    Board of Public Utilites Chair Timothy Neal, who was the only board member to vote against the new tiered water rate ordinance in its recommendation to council, took an unprecedented step during council's consideration of the ordinance on Tuesday.
    Neal asked council to ignore the board’s recommendation so that the new board being seated this month could revisit the issue. Three of the five board members are being replaced.
    Council asked Neal if he was speaking for the board or as a private citizen. It is not uncommon for board members to speak for or against a board recommendation during public comment, as private citizens. Neal voiced his opposition to the ordinance during public comment and former board member Steven Tenbrink and current member David Powell spoke in support of the recommendation.
    But during the presentation to council, Neal insisted he was speaking on behalf of the “new” board, which has not yet met, since they would be the ones required to implement the new ordinance.
    Councilors challenged Neal’s claim to be representing the board.

  • Unions give $180,000 to group for New Mexico races

    SANTA FE (AP) — Labor unions have contributed $180,000 to a Democratic-leaning political committee that can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money to influence legislative and other state races in New Mexico.
    The political action committee Patriot Majority New Mexico received $100,000 from an American Federation of Teachers’ political committee last month and $80,000 from a committee of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees in late May, according to the latest campaign finance reports.
    The PAC was a top spender in New Mexico’s fiercely contested legislative races two years ago when Democrats retained majorities in the House and Senate.
    Democrats have long controlled the Legislature but the GOP hopes to pick up enough seats in this year’s elections to gain a majority in the 70-member House for the first time in 60 years. Republicans could receive a boost from having GOP Gov. Susana Martinez running for re-election this year in much the same way Democrats benefited in 2012 from having President Barack Obama at the top of the ballot to draw voters to the polls.
