A recent poll of Santa Fe residents paints a picture of a liberal-leaning populace that is uncertain whether the city’s leadership is capable of doing much to improve the local economy.

Forty percent of respondents said they’re confident the new mayor and City Council are capable of growing the economy, while the other 60 percent were uncertain or doubtful.

    If I remember correctly, the Do Not Call registry doesn't apply to election related telemarketing and polling, those being constitutionally protected political speech. Not that it's particularly effective at blocking any other type of telemarketing, either.

    Telemarketers are committed to increasing their calls to cell phones, which have been largely immune to their intrusions until the last couple years. The DoNotCall.gov website was apparently created by monkeys with limited logic for integrating appropriate and deductive questions to address a complaint. Ineffective by design, seemingly. Lawmakers and Attorneys General (Gary King, worthless) are also unconcerned, since they are on the payroll of telemarketing lobbying organizations, and are paid to "look the other way".I would vote for someone (representative, senator, attorney general, governor) who seemed serious about going after the crank-yankers who presently have no fear of federal DoNotCall regulations.

    What will the pollsters do when the last little old lady with a land line passes on?

    So Mayor Javier says: “The thing we have to do at City Hall is to develop positive economic policies that are going to see our economy grow in a way that impacts all families.”

    Well, apparently he's going to get around to that, right after he gets done with his fitness fun challenge and a stint in the rodeo. Priorities, priorities, priorities.

    Poll problems: The lack of complaints re broadband can be explained by the nature of the poll. Relying on land lines to contact people distorts the result and favors the less connected. More broadly, most people don't 'do business' with the City. Those that do have little good to say. Most will tell you that the City is anti-business.
