Marie Campos says she hasn’t seen much change in District 3 in the four years since she last campaigned to represent the area on the City Council.

“Right now, I don’t seem much difference between what’s going on on the south side and what’s going on in any low-income community,” she said. “I don’t really see any changes that really show people’s lives are getting better. We still see all the crime and home break-ins,” she said. The break-ins are actually worse than before.”

    "Asked at a recent forum about whether she was in favor of a multimillion dollar expansion of the the Rodeo grounds in the adjoining District 4 — an idea that has been publicly debated for about a year — she said she hadn’t heard of the plan."

    I think I've seen a story or two about that idea here in the New Mexican, but I don't think I've heard anyone discussing it anywhere else. I'm not sure it's a topic that weighs heavily on the minds of District 3 residents, or any Santa Feans who don't live right by the rodeo grounds. But the New Mexican isn't interested in addressing the community's real problems, like burglary and drug addiction, because discussing those highlights Mayor Coss' failed liberal agenda.

    I will not vote for any of the Three Stooges running for mayor, but I will vote for Marie Campos, and NO to the charter changes.

    People spin lies, and attempt to destroy and manipulate others thinking by using pieces of truth and leaving out key information.
    Here are facts the New Mexican conveniently left out:
    1. Complaints were not made by “farmers”; accusations emerged in meetings run by Eric Griego a politician from Albuquerque in the Bueno Foods district- the company that was illegally using Chimayo’s name on one of their products. We, the farmers and I, had to fight Bueno Foods for the name and won.
    2. I worked with the farmers for 4 years to create a certification mark, I incorporated them, and I still hold the secretary position for the Chimayo Chile Farmers, Inc.
    3. I worked one year without pay to secure the $475,000 grant and the $159,375 salary was approved by the federal funders and covers a grant period of 3 year not 1 year.
    4. The federal agency that awarded the grant issued a statement to the newspaper at the time, "The Office of Community Services, Administration for Children and Families, Health and Human Services, has been monitoring the grant and has found no reason to be concerned about its progress at this time,"
    5. I don't know about three $6,900 default judgments only one was entered.
    It is a shame to read that the New Mexican is still spinning the smear campaign against me. The only thing I did was lead the community to victory. No good deed is left unpunished.
