Saturday: Common Cause Luncheon to Feature Ethics Reform Panel Discussion

From Common Cause New Mexico:
Join us on Saturday, October 10 for Common Cause New Mexico's annual luncheon in Albuquerque!

Our theme this year is "The Future of Ethics Reform in New Mexico" and we're trying something different. Nicole Brady from KOB-TV Channel 4 will moderate an ethics reorm panel made up of state legislators from both major parties: Senators Sander Rue and Peter Wirth, and Representatives Kathy McCoy and Eleanor Chavez.

Two former state treasurers and a former state president are in jail for corruption, and numerous investigations into other alleged corruption cases in our state are ongoing. These disturbing facts have focused national attention on New Mexico's weak ethics laws. How to reform these laws is a bipartisan concern, and this panel will help deepen the public discussion regarding these crucial issues.

Here are all the details:

  • What: Common Cause New Mexico's annual luncheon; $20 includes a catered lunch, and all proceeds support our work in New Mexico
  • When: Saturday, October 10 from 12 to 2 PM
  • Where: UNM Continuing Education Building, 1634 University Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM
  • Who: Nicole Brady, state legislators, and you!

Space is limited so please RSVP today by calling Common Cause New Mexico at (505) 323-6399, and leaving your name and the number of people in your party.
