Governor Martinez’s Corporate Policy Summit Shows What’s Wrong with Republican Priorities
Albuquerque, N.M. – As Governor Martinez hosts the Republican Governors Association (RGA) for what she called a “corporate policy summit”, the Democratic Party of New Mexico (DPNM) released a map of lost jobs under Governor Martinez’s watch.
Under Governor Susana Martinez’s watch, New Mexico has lost jobs across the state. From more than 1,600 jobs in her harmful behavioral health shakeup to thousands of private sector jobs, Governor Martinez and Republicans’ corporate policy agenda has done little to keep jobs in New Mexico.
In addition, Governor Martinez continues to put the interests of corporations ahead of the needs of New Mexico families. Corporate tax cuts have cost New Mexico valuable revenues that could have been used for infrastructure projects, to cover the $86 million Medicaid funding gap, to improve education, and increase the economic stability for New Mexico families.
