    Tons on PERA and retired as a Lt. Colonel? By all means, retire and see your family!

    Tapia is not reflective of all of all government employees. He is an excellent example of those who know how to play politics. There are plenty of high level executive managers in local and state government who hold high positions based solely on WHO they know rather than WHAT they know.
    If you really want to play connect the dots with Tapia pull up the audit reports from the stage agencies he worked at in his carrier. Each of those audits full of multiple findings based on financial and personnel management issues.

    The manner in which business is done at the City of Santa Fe makes me wonder why anyone would want to work there. Nothing has improved in the 8 years I have been observing. Hope this mayor is able to make a difference, but I choose not to hold my breath!
