I am already an admirer of New Mexico's new governor, Susanna Martinez. I think that she is a no nonsense type of person who knows that if you want to reduce the deficit, you actually have to cut back on spending. If she can get the congress to go along with her and cut red tape and reduce taxes, she should see an improvement in the states future business relations.
According to the Los Angeles Times "She has ordered the state jet sold, cut expenses at the residence by 55%, including letting go two personal chefs who had been working there, cut her cabinet ministers' salaries by 10%, and frozen all new vehicle purchases, except for law enforcement, among other stringencies".
Remind you of someone? Kind of sounds like a woman along the lines of Sarah Palin. I wonder if the media will start to treat her with the disrespect that they do Sarah? Would the hispanic community stand up for her? Race does not have anything to do with it, though. As a commonsense conservative, she knows that she has to lead, and lead by example.
