This Ed Buhr Trucking Company operator got stuck in a traffic clogging parade in Roswell NM Monday October 2 2017. The La Jara CO transport business should have routed their driver around the congestion via the loop around alien city called the relief route!
Mayoral candidates Dennis Kintigh and Del Jurney were centerpieces of the Main Street US 285 closing event with former Mayor Jurney shaking all hands and kissing all babies in sight. Based on his amiable demeanor and almost fanatical reception by parade goers, this out of town observer predicts a landslide victory for Mr Jurney!
Also Senate Majority Whip Michael Padilla was a strong presence, adding a personal touch by toting his sign down main street near NMMI and hinting he would make an appearance at the State Fair. I am not impressed with his emphasis on glorifying poverty-related issues. The dude has actually promoted a legislative session bill banning “lunch shaming” for students whose parents don’t pay their cafeteria bills!
Roswell is so poor that Michael’s initiative may actually get him some votes, BUT there are NO free lunches Mr Padilla. You are sending the message that it is OK to shirk one’s financial responsibility. No wonder young people grow up expecting the government to take care of them.
