For a pub­lic bank

Santa Fe New Mexican - - OPINIONS -

I sup­port a pub­lic bank for Santa Fe, and so should you. Know­ing where your tax dol­lars go to work in our city (trans­parency), turn­ing the debt bur­den that we now pay to Wells Fargo into dol­lars for use in pub­lic work and com­mu­nity projects (lever­age), and de­vel­op­ing a bound­ary be­tween city gov­ern­ment and man­age­ment of the bank by pro­fes­sional bankers (ac­count­abil­ity) are three ex­cel­lent rea­sons to take con­trol of our fi­nances and con­trib­ute more lo­cally to the pub­lic good.
