The Santa Fe County Commission on Tuesday approved about $1.2 million worth of spending related to the new First Judicial District Courthouse by a vote of 3-2.

About $500,000 will cover a change order to the construction contract for work mostly related to the underground parking garage — which the County Commission decided last month will not be open to the public for security reasons. The commissioners voted unanimously to cover costs of those improvements.

    This is what we consistently get when the County refuses to have any significant public outreach or community discussions about these big ticket capital projects.

    Disgusting! This could have been built on Rodeo Rd. or at the Jail for half or less than this boondoggle. I live in Stefanics' district, I voted for her, but I won't again. She can keep her pain. Good on Anaya!
    The property was better off the way it was, a PRODUCTIVE tax revenue generating one.

    Politicians are notorious for saying one thing and doing another!

    I'll go along with this, but only because Liz Stafanics was "pained." I mean, sure, it'd be nice if our elected officials did what's expected of them by those that put them into office, BUT i prefer not to set the bar so high for politicians. If they can at least be quoted by the media that they "struggled" or were "pained" by not doing what their constituents voted them to do, I believe it to be win-win.[beam]
