Remember when candidate Susana Martinez ran all those TV ads about Baby Brianna? A lot of people said those ads helped her win, and they were sure she would be serious about tackling New Mexico's child abuse crisis.

Hiring freezes without granting exemptions is a Governor's Office game at creating the image of being fiscally conservative--seems that 120 positions would be a huge percent of the workforce in NM and thus shows how empty the campaign words were. Thanks for posting Carrie.

My heart goes out to all our children who have to endure child abuse.

Thanks Carrie for the link to the shocking article, statistics and video. Another Republican politician' campaign promise down the tubes. Read, viewed and noted.

Martinez is quite simply ~ another self serving republican who cares little, if at all, about her constituents.

Gosh, I am getting sick of some of these politicians who forget they were voted in by the people and they should be acting on their behalf.
Thanks Carrie.

Politics as usual?

But why is anyone surprised? She is a Republican! OMG, I am so sorry New Mexico still has so many people who think a Republican can be believed if his or her mouth is moving.

And this will probably not even teach her not to field a campaign on promises that are contrary to the party platform, either. But those were.

The problem here is that Martinez is an Hispanic woman ~ so most of her flaws are overlooked. So sad that so many are so politically uneducated!

Omaree Is the real Susanna. She has encouraged CYFD to return money and has cut their budget. She does not deserve Baby Brianna's picture on her wall. New Mexico has fallen from 43rd to 50th in child well being since she took office and it shows.
