THE PAST 100 YEARS

Santa Fe New Mexican - - LOCAL & REGION -

From the Santa Fe New Mex­i­can: July 13, 1918: Ed­uardo Otero Will Not Be A Can­di­date For Gov­er­nor, Lat­est Ru­mor; Fall Foot­steps Heard

The clans gather, the plot thick­ens, the trum­pets sound, the war horses sniff the con­flict from afar or words to that gen­eral ef­fect.

All of which is, be­ing in­ter­preted, that the Repub­li­can lead­ers are hold­ing con­fer­ences, im­ping­ing on Santa Fe and the gov­er­nor’s of­fice with much wag­ging of heads and that the bur­den of their pow­wows is three­fold: Shall there be a spe­cial ses­sion? and whom shall we name for gov­er­nor and what of Se­na­tor Fall and his piv­otal po­si­tion po­lit­i­cally?

July 13, 1993: State Tax­a­tion and Rev­enue Sec­re­tary Dick Minzner on Mon­day de­fended his po­si­tion to col­lect gross re­ceipt taxes from In­dian Mar­ket ven­dors, say­ing state govern­ment’s ex­ec­u­tive branch can’t sin­gle out one group for a tax ex­emp­tion.

“The gov­er­nor has no author­ity to ig­nore laws passed by the Leg­is­la­ture,” Minzner told mem­bers of the Leg­is­la­ture’s In­dian Af­fairs Com­mit­tee meet­ing in the Te­suque Pue­blo bingo hall.
