THIS WEEK IN DETAIL:

PAY TO PLAY SCHEME BY GOVERNOR MARTINEZ

On Saturday, state senators killed Senate Bill 430 after Senator Steve Neville (R-Aztec) said that he had misled his colleagues about connections between Governor Susana Martinez and real estate developers who were campaign donors and stood to benefit from the legislation.  A group of Senators have charged that the bill, which would have extended a building lease for state offices in Albuquerque, was a classic example of pay-to-play politics. Democrats have called for an investigation by the Senate Rules Committee into Governor Martinez's involvement. You can read more on this HERE.

Please call New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas, and the Chair Senate Rules Committee Linda M. Lopez to demand an investigation into Governor Martinez's motives in pushing Senate Bill 430.

Hector Balderas, AG: 505-717-3500
Linda M. Lopez, Senate Rules Committee Chair: 505-986-4737
Jeff Steinborn, Senate Rules Committee Vice-Chair: 505-986-4862

Talking points:
• I am calling to ask you to investigate Governor Martinez's involvement in pushing Senate Bill 430.
• This bill would have directly benefited one of her campaign donors and I will not stand for corruption in the governor's office.


MARCH 15th, THE IDES OF TRUMP

We encourage everyone to participate in THIS INTERNATIONAL ACTION by mailing postcards to Washington on March 15th.  The plan is to flood the White House with postcards from all around the globe expressing our vocal opposition to the President.  How to participate:

1. Write one postcard. Write a dozen! Create your own cards, buy them, share them, it doesn’t matter as long as you write #TheIdes or #TheIdesOfTrump on them somewhere.

2. Take a picture of your cards and post them on social media (tagged with #TheIdesOfTrump or #TheIdes, please). This will help us verify our numbers.

3. Spread the word! Everyone on Earth can let Washington know their opinion of the President. They can’t build a wall high enough to stop the mail.

4. Then, on March 15th, mail your cards to:
The President (for now)
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500


Thank you for all you are doing!

In solidarity,Amelia + Marisa
