Eliminate NM’s Lt. Governor?

Our new Capitol Reporter, Rob Nikolewski wrote a really interesting story over at Capitol Report New Mexico today about the lack of responsibilities, and heavy costs of, the Lt. Governor’s job in New Mexico. Given the budget problems facing New Mexico these days, it would seem that now is as good a time as ever to cut spending, even if it means pulling the rug out from under government workers looking to rise in the political ranks.

Anyone got a specific objection? I’d love to hear it. It certainly doesn’t seem that NM taxpayers are getting their money’s worth!

  1. Great idea. Even when Richardson was out of town, he still had his people manage things for him and the Lt. Gov was not that person.
