Support Santa Fe's Living Wage at Appeals Hearing

From the Santa Fe Living Wage Network:

*  Hear the Court of Appeals argument at 9:30 AM on June 22nd. A three judge panel of the New Mexico Court of Appeals will hear the appeal of the Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce from Judge Daniel Sanchez's June, 2004 ruling that the Santa Fe Living Wage Ordinance is legally valid. The panel consists of Judges Lynn Pickard, Michael Bustamante, and Cynthia Fry. Come and show your support by listening to the argument. The Courts of Appeals is at 237 Don Gaspar in Santa Fe.
