A new political action committee, led by a retired judge who co-chaired the commission that drafted Santa Fe’s city charter amendments, will seek voter support for a switch to a strong-mayor form of government.

Patricio Serna, a retired state Supreme Court justice who has been a supporter of the governance change, is co-chairman of the political committee, called Vote for 9 for a Full Time Mayor.

    You would think that Bushee and Dimas would realize that if Javier wins (which he will) that the role and the 'Power/Authority' of the Council Councilors will be be significantly diminished. With the way that the forums are being handled (no talking bad about your opponent) one might think Patti is part of the fix that's in. I mean after all, Fat Bill did give her a job with the State.

    You have to know that this is Javiers doing. Potter, Ellenberg, Morty, Carol, Judge Vigil and Carl Lopez were there at Gonzales' announcement party. Potter said of Javier's father "He gave me my first job." Maybe Potter is scheduled to be City Attorney and Lopez the City Clerk? ...Jesus, Mary and Joseph WTF.

    Not only is this the least honest election and the most rigged sham I have seen but it is the most depressing gutless politics ever.

    Dragging out the old half dead Democrats like Earl Potter and Serna to get in early on the corruption that will follow. I was already on their web site this morning try to vandalize it with "No on 9" slogans. This is getting creepier by the minute.

    I was at City hall harassing Yolanda (City Clerk) three weeks ago about such a PAC.
    It is interesting in that I don't have to declare or register as a PAC if I collect but don't spend money. So give me money for the "NO on 9" campaign and if it is defeated I'll give the money back to you.

    I think someone (maybe Donado Coviello?) should start up a PAC to stop this charter amendment from passing. Donado?

    No need to fret or wring one's hands over how to vote on this proposed change. Just consider how Debbie Jaramillo's administration would have operated under these radically expanded mayoral powers and then go ahead and cast your vote.
