If at all possible, I hope you can make it to Santa Fe on Monday to register your comments with the Environmental Improvement Board. Information on the hearing can be found here. Jim Scarantino, our investigative journalist, has been doing a great deal of groundbreaking work on the makeup and political conflicts at the Environmental Improvement Board over at his site.
Once you are done with the EIB meeting, I hope you’ll attend our District 3 Congressional candidate forum between Adam Kokesh and Tom Mullins which is being held from 6pm to 8pm at the Santa Fe Community College.
Oh, and of course you can come up for the first day of the special legislative session and tell your representatives and senators that tax hikes are unnecessary.
Additional details on the EIB meeting can be found here:
* TIME: The EIB will convene its all-day meeting at 10 a.m. Monday, but it will hear comments in opposition to the NEE petition beginning at 2 p.m. Comments in support will be heard from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. (If your schedule only permits you to comment in the morning, the EIB most likely will accommodate you)
* LOCATION: The meeting will take place in the State Personnel Office Auditorium, Willie Ortiz Building, 2600 Cerrillos Road.
* PROCESS: Comments will be limited to 3 minutes. Comments will likely be heard on a first-come, first-served basis based on a sign-up sheet that should be available at the comment session. Those who wish to comment are advised to arrive as early as possible.
* FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE: If you find you have a long time to wait for your turn to comment, feel free to utilize the ACI Convenience Room at the nearby Courtyard by Marriott, 3347 Cerrillos Road, about one mile south west of the Willie Ortiz Building. Enjoy comfortable seating, complimentary refreshments and free Internet access. The convenience room will be open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
