One really has to admire the rational approach Nora Espinoza champions as a state representative in New Mexico. She espouses a bill that would give police officers the latitude to tow vehicles if driver can NOT verify they are insured. Espinoza points out that responsible motorists who pay for insurance foot the bill for folks who choose to drive without, at least, the minimum liability auto insurance that the law requires.
Also, in the well written article by Ilissa Gilmore of the RDR, Espinoza is an advocate of a consumer protection bill that will PREVENT subcontractors from placing a lien on a home without the homeowner’s permission or knowledge. This would prevent new homeowners from being screwed over by an unscrupulous home builder who did not pay off a contractor!
Nora Espinoza, a former Protocol/Etiquette officer at NMMI, has made quite a name for herself as an uncompromising, no nonsense supporter of common folk trying to scratch out a living in trying times. She really cares about her constituency and is the vigilant watchdog she promised the people who voted her into office! She is NOT a career politician and her district is lucky to have her.
