Reducing crime and creating jobs are cornerstone issues in Michael Segura’s campaign for the Santa Fe City Council.

They also are albatrosses for Segura because of his personal record.

    The economy collapsed in 2008, and it hasn't improved much since. That forced lots of entrepreneurs into bankruptcy, and put many of them in a position where they couldn't meet their tax obligations. It's not spectacular news, and it's not something I'd put on my resume, either.

    What is the Affordable Wage? If someone is wants to work for less than the Living Wage because they believe in what they are doing, I don't see any harm in that. The city doesn't pay the Living Wage to its part-time or temporary employees, and the New Mexican doesn't pay its street newspaper sales folks the Living Wage, so I can understand Segura's confusion about an employer's obligations under the ordinance.

    Frankly, I'm glad I don't live in District 1 anymore, because neither of these candidates is an attractive choice.

    I doubt Ms Lindell is a Coss crony. As for Segura, at forums, he mentioned several DWIs (in the past) but failed to mention the bankruptcy and huge tax debt. He didn't pay his employee the Affordable Wage or write off the difference off as a contribution in kind. He apparently hasn't paid much attention to the changes in that law. In addition, he seemed clueless that the state has a medical marijuana program. Some of his statements concerning his stake in this community come across as thinly veiled homophobic or racist comments IMO.

    It's interesting that Milan Simonich doesn't give Segura (a.k.a. Rockstar505) the same kid-glove treatment that he gave to Signe Lindell. Is the fix in for another Coss crony?
