(Note: this is not the Dem. Party Message)
PASS THE BUDGET
The Democratic Party Message is “We’re marching to restore higher education funding and give our state a bright future”.
PDA feels this is a very weak and limited message. We believe the message is not inclusive and doesn’t have an appeal for all New Mexicans. If the newly-elected party chair is serious about getting reluctant voters excited about voting, this is not the way to do it. There is much more in the budget that we want and must fight for. PDA believes the party and our legislative leadership must become bolder in their fight for all New Mexicans in this legislative session.
WHAT DO WE WANT?
We want our elected legislators to hand the current budget back to the governor and leave the building. If they can’t do that, they must insist that this budget be a budget that protects the well-being of all the people in this state.
We would ask that you make your own signs that express these sentiments.
Laura Stokes – PDA State Co-Coordinator
