ALBUQUERQUE — Gov. Susana Martinez has spent $2,378 of state money on exercise equipment for the governor’s mansion in Santa Fe.

Martinez told KRQE-TV (http://bit.ly/15DVEjq ) that she’s tried going to public gyms but said she couldn’t concentrate on working out because people want to talk and visit.

    I approve - good for your Susana! the previous Gov Richardson spent that much on cigars and booz in one week AND could have used some exercise equipment. lol

    So much for the conservative fiscal responsibility of the Republican party. [wink] a shortage of truth in advertising, I'd say. Next time, vote outside the box: it appears the Democrats and Republicans are woven from the same threads.

    In MY opinion, the money would have been better spent on CLE (Continuing Legal Education) Classes since she seems to have forgotten to take the class on Civics, and Ethics. A governor that doesn't know her responsibilities to taxpayers or employees; a governor who doesn't realize the depth or limitations of her powers is of no use at all.

    She is in great need of an education. Excercise? Walk or bike to class.

    I DON'T GET IT, WHEN RICHARDSON TOOK OFFICE AND WENT ON HIS WEIGHT LOSS KICK HE HAD A MILLION DOLLAR WORK OUT ROOM INSTALLED IN THE BASEMENT (MIRRORS INCLUDED) FOR HIM AND HIS SECURITY DETAIL TO USE, IT WAS VERY STATE OF THE ART, AND COST THE TAX PAYERS A VERY PRETTY PENNY, DID HE TAKE IT ALL WITH HIM.

    With the bloated paycheck she receives she could not pay for this equipment herself, really? Then she could have DONATED said equipment to the mansion on her departure, which IMHO will not be fast enough. Wow only the privileged have the audacity to use someone else s money to play around.
    [angry]
