Should the city of Santa Fe decriminalize marijuana use?

City Council District 3 candidate Angelo Jaramillo said it’s an idea worth considering if it could provide a revenue stream that would allow the city to avoid cutting vital services in times of economic hardship.

    Good hearts and youthful vigor are inspirational, sure, but worse than useless when wasted on petty class warfare and "Occupy" sloganeering. I'm sure Che Guevara had a good heart and youthful vigor, and the accompanying self-righteousness to sleep well at night after murdering the children of people falsely accused of opposing the revolution.

    By the way, I'd bet I'm at least a decade younger than you, old man. [smile]

    I wanted to agree with Ms. Campos's suggestion in the recent forum that we should energize the youth in our city through getting them more involved with ways to beautify and enrich our city. She used the example of partnering with the city departments that keep our streets and arroyos in my neighborhood (Tierra Contenta) clean. But this is only one way they play a role in making this a better city for of us. My wife is laughing over the comment that using young people in our city for this purpose constitutes "slave labor." As a south Texas teenager, she spent a summer working for the revived Civilian Conservation Corps working on outdoor environmental projects, and has great memories of all the fun they had.

    There is a big difference between conservative Republicans in Congress asking kids to work for their food stamps, and neighborhood kids pitching in (alongside adult volunteer organizations) help make Santa Fe the beautiful city we all love.

    Pierce, you're turning into a grump. I think there has to be a hope for a future for Santa Fe coming from some place, even if its just Jeff E. Green and Angelo Jaramillo. I bet they both are against the charter revisions. You have to look at the heart of the candidate. People like Bushee and Dominguez don't have a heart ...they're government programed machines. Angelo and Jeff Eeeeee Green have good hearts and youthful vigor ... get out of they way old man.

    So Jaramillo said that he would “give wealth back” to the good citizens of District 3?
    From where is Jaramillo planning on getting this wealth that he's planning on "giving" back to the lucky folks in District 3? How will this wealth be distributed to those District 3 citizens, cash or check, divvied up equally or on an as needed basis? Will there be means testing, or will anyone living in District 3 be eligible to receive some of this wealth? Does one have to be a current resident of District 3 to get a share of this wealth, or would one be eligible of a chunk of it if one moves there after the election?

    Campos is a 'Rubber Johnny' (former St. John's student)? Aren't they taught not to lower themselves to be part of the Santa Fe community? What a laugh .. this must be the work of St. John's volunteer librarian Jill Cooper Udall and political busybody Valerie Plame.

    Dominguez is half right about his role in making Santa Fe Government "leaner and meaner" ... he was right on about the "meaner" part. It is also obvious that he wasn't talking about his part in getting "leaner." He is one of those 'Fat Cat' politicians that cause the financial crises over the last few year. Just like Bushee, he has never voted against a tax increase, voted for Councilor's pay raises and like bushee is heavy supported the charter revision. His work with the State should be a conflict of interest.
    He has thrown his weigh around on the Council.He is , as we use to say , one 'heavy dude.'

    didn't Carmichaels relative from the police department Andy Leyba benefit by a change Carmichael made solely for him to the sick leave payout policy at the city by cashing unused sick leave to the tune of over $100,000.000? the city later had to change this back and reduce sick leave buy back for everyone else.

    Isn't he a double-dipper. He certainly has bellied up to the public trough.

    Carmichael reminds me Christie with facial hair.
