Lost moral com­pass

Santa Fe New Mexican - - OPINIONS -

The city has lost its moral com­pass, ex­tend­ing the Santa Fe city bank con­tract with shame­ful cor­po­rate Wells Fargo Bank (“Mayor, coun­cil re­luc­tantly keep Wells Fargo as city’s bank,” Aug. 31). The City Coun­cil’s 6-3 vote rub­ber­stamped this fi­asco with the city Fi­nance Com­mit­tee’s rec­om­men­da­tion as, in Coun­cilor Peter Ives’ words, “the log­i­cal choice,” de­spite Wells Fargo fraud and Dakota Ac­cess Pipe­line loans in the face of Santa Feans, New Mex­i­cans and mil­lions of folks across the coun­try clos­ing their Wells Fargo ac­counts and trans­fer­ring their money else­where to take a stand against the greed, fraud and dis­en­fran­chise­ment by cap­i­tal­ism at its worst. Right here in Santa Fe is an­other at­tempt to “drain the swamp,” only to re­veal all the fos­silized rep­tiles ly­ing on the sandy desert floor. Pamela Cany­on­rivers
