From the Santa Fe New Mexican:
June 13, 1919: Transcontinental tourists are now coming through town by scores. The chamber of commerce office has twenty to thirty people a day coming in for information of various kinds, chiefly about road conditions. Part of the secretary’s job is to make sure that visitors in the Capital City see everything of interest and leave satisfied with the reception they have receive. That is a way to make a booster out of the casual traveler.
If you are approached by a tourist who wants some information you cannot give him, send him to the chamber of commerce office. We have a supply of pamphlets for free distribution, and we keep informed as to road conditions everywhere in the state. Remember, that to most strangers, Santa Fe is simply a place to buy oil and gas, and fill the radiator.
June 13, 1969: A report prepared monthly by county magistrates indicates that the district attorney’s office is having difficulty keeping pace with the criminal caseload in the lower courts of the First Judicial District.
In Santa Fe County 77 criminal complaints were filed by the district attorney since Jan. 1 and only 18 cases disposed of, 13 by dismissal. This leaves 69 cases pending for further court actions.
Dist. Atty. James Thompson of Espanola has pointed out on numerous occasions that the position of district attorney is a part-time job.
June 13, 1994: More than 300 Democratic Party members from around the state showed up in Albuquerque on Sunday to express their dissatisfaction with Gov. Bruce King, U.S. Sen. Jeff Bingaman and U.S. Rep. Bill Richardson, one of the event’s organizers said.
“It was an opportunity for people to tell it like it is about the problems with the Democratic Party in New Mexico and the fact that a lot of them don’t want to support Gov. King for the gubernatorial race,” said state Sen. Roman Maes, D-Santa Fe.
In addition to Maes, Lt. Gov. Casey Luna and Art Trujillo, chairman of the Democratic Party in Bernalillo County, were other leading Democrats at the meeting.
