A Santa Fe businessman is considering entering the Democratic primary for governor as a fresh face in New Mexico politics, his political consultant confirmed Friday.

Alan Webber, 65, co-founder of a business magazine and former managing editor of the Harvard Business Review, is a political progressive who has lived in Santa Fe for about 10 years, said consultant Neri Holguin of Albuquerque. Originally from St. Louis, Webber lived in Portland, Ore., and Boston before moving to Santa Fe.

    The only thing I remember about the administration of Governor Gary Johnson was his hand gliding adventures from Sandia Crest!

    I would love to have the impossible knowledge — some assurance that Webber wouldn't turn out to be just another double-talking doofus. I've become a cynic of late. I've voted for some smooth-talking politicos at many levels and have NOT been impressed with my return on investment. I'm beginning to worry especially about the two-party setup, and am ready seriously to consider alternatives.

    The Governor doesn't have that power. This is a federal issue. Contact your Senators, asking them to get Obama, the man with this power, to stop the slaughter.

    Perhaps a very interesting alternative if he can bring a realistic problem solving approach to government. Accomplishments outside of politics yet involving people and leadership outside the political procees would be great.

    What is Webber's stance on the proposed "house of horrors" horse slaughter plant. So far Gov. Martinez has refused to issue an executive order to ban the practice in an otherwise beautiful state. She obviously has not read the reports from Kaufman, Tx where the city is still battling the aftermath of the plant that closed over 7 years ago.

    Just take a look at what the state has to look forward to if Gov. Martinez does not act. What would Webber do? A horse slaughter plant does not support enough jobs to justify the blood leaching into the water supply, the endangerment of several protected species, the stinch in the air, the cruelty of a slaughter process that has proven to not only be inhumane but will not uphold the standards set forth in the "Humane Slaughter Act"...not to mention it will produce NOTHING that can be sold here in the United States.

    Mr. Webber...what are your thoughts? There are a lot of us waiting for Gov. Martinez to step up to the plate. Tell us what you'd do if you were in her shoes.

    "A horse is the projection of peoples’ dreams about themselves-strong, powerful, beautiful-and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence."
