PLEASE

VOTE NO

ON BOND D

It has come to my attention that Bond D on Tuesday's ballot --"for capital improvements at institutions of higher education and constitutional special schools statewide" includes hidden funding for "research" on Genetically Engineered crops at New Mexico State University.

All GMO vegetable varieties are prohibited at the Nob Hill Growers' Market. We invite you to learn more about the dangers of genetically engineered food and the delights of natural varieties and flavors.

PLEASE !

VOTE NO ON Bond D

Wish I had know this last Tuesday.
i know. late breaking news. i would have liked to have posted this a month ago.
what is your source?
here's the breakdown going to NMSU:

"(7) to the board of regents of New Mexico state university:
(a) nineteen million dollars ($19,000,000) to plan, design, construct, equip and furnish the arts complex in Las Cruces in Dona Ana county;
(b) two million four hundred thousand dollars ($2,400,000) for an agricultural center for research, education and services in Las Cruces inDona Ana county;
(c) six million dollars ($6,000,000) to design, plan, construct, equip and furnish the Dona Ana east mesa center to be used primarily for classroom and laboratory space at the Dona Ana branch in Las Cruces in Dona Ana county;
(d) five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000) to renovate and expand the trades building at the Dona Ana branch campus of New Mexico state university in Las Cruces in Dona Ana county;
(e) one million dollars ($1,000,000) to plan, design, construct, equip and furnish renovations of the general classroom buildings at the Alamogordo branch campus in Otero county;
(f) three hundred thousand dollars ($300,000) for infrastructure renovation and expansion at the Carlsbad branch campus in Eddy county; and
(g) one million dollars ($1,000,000) for infrastructure renovation and expansion at the Grants branch campus in Cibola county;"
good question! i love that question!

so, the source is an extension agent in alcalde, and it is hidden in (b) i believe.

i know this sounds like an attack on money for education, and as a student, i am certainly not trying to do that. I support 95% of this bond issue, just not the money for GMO research. Also, i believe that there is also money included for buying up water rights down south, which i disagree with as a farmer. again, that source is the extension agent.

Ouch. Sorry for the GMO funding, but there were four higher education design projects in this bond issue that my architecture firm is working on, so I had to vote "Yes".

"Old Town Plaza next to outdoor Gazebo would be a great place for someone to start up a Tai Chi or Yoga class. What do you think?"
