In case you’ve been out of the country, you are probably already aware that the 2010 elections this November are very important to New Mexico’s future. Before we get to November, however, there is a primary on June 1 and early voting is going on right now.
In order to help decide who they want to vote for in November, the Rio Grande Foundation (along with KOB Channel 4) is holding a televised gubernatorial candidate debate to be attended by all five candidates.
This debate will be held on May 27th from 7:00 to 8:00PM and will be televised live on KOB Channel 4 from Rodey Hall on the campus of the University of New Mexico. We are extremely pleased that all five Republican candidates have accepted the invitation to participate.
As you might imagine, putting together an event of this size and importance costs money. Our expected outlay for this event will be just over $2,000. This amount will pay for an auditorium, staging, and a variety of other important things that go into this once-in-a-campaign opportunity.
Please support this history-in-the-making opportunity and help the Rio Grande Foundation by donating at least $20.00 by no later than Sunday, May 23rd. You can donate safely and securely online. And, as a thank you for your donation, we will have two tickets waiting for you at the door on debate night!
We hope you will support this event with a generous donation, even more than $20, and in return we will provide you with additional tickets to this once-in-a-lifetime event. And don’t forget, if you will not be able to attend the debate, you can still show your support by making a donation today!
You can mail your donation to Rio Grande Foundation, P.O. Box 40336, Albuquerque, NM 87196, or, as mentioned, online at our secure site. Or if you are more comfortable with “offline” communication, please give us a call us at 505-264-6090 and we will be happy to take your credit card information over the phone.
Please donate on or before May 23rd so we can be sure to reserve tickets for you! Tickets are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis, so we urge you to donate early and generously!
We, at the Rio Grande Foundation, are working hard to continue our efforts to make the public aware of who the candidates for Governor of New Mexico are and what they stand for.
