Keith Bell is a Roswell,NM icon like it or not. He has managed to irritate/incense people on both sides of the conservative/liberal divide in southeastern New Mexico. This divide is quite magnified in a town that battled acrimoniously over the three mill levy which would have injected life blood into the deteriorating infrastructure of ENMU.
As you can see in the most recent Keith Bell cartoon below, either he or his employer does not want to see Incumbent Mayor Del Jurney reelected. His employer is the Roswell Daily Record and one would think they endorse the views of Bell cartoons that appear in The Voice of the Pecos Valley.
Bell’s cartoon which leverages an association with the well known music group Journey, criticizes Jurney for trying to always raise taxes, being good to his self, any way you want it(song title), won’t get fooled again(isn’t that by the Guess Who?), give PC a chance, and other selections in Jurney’s Greatest Hits. Yes Keith, the apostrophe after the y is a way to form the possessive of the proper noun Jurney. Learned that from Dr Heidi Huckabee at ENMU. I believe her salary was partially paid for by Bond money whose passage you so predictably oppose.
I don’t think Keith could vote for Dennis Kintigh either because Bell has likely published cartoons offensive to the Roswell Police Department and Dennis is a former police chief and FBI special agent.
More recently Keith made sure the city did not forgot that ENMU is not above reproach when he exposed an internal faculty composed disciplinary committee which ruled against the the findings of a respected accounting firm out of Albuquerque. The auditors found that EMS instructors over billed for their services.
