Cuts Should Begin in Governor’s Office

Over the next couple of weeks, the Governor is going to line item veto various capital outlay projects. That is all well and good, but you’ve got to wonder if he shouldn’t look at his own office first as a home mansion of unnecessary expenditures:

Seriously, five public information officers? How can that be in New Mexico’s best interest?
