DAVID IS KEENLY AWARE UNEMPLOYMENT IS AT A 22-YEAR HIGH AND THAT IT'S IMPORTANT TO HAVE A LEADER WHO KNOWS HOW TO CREATE JOBS New Mexico should be business-friendly, but we are not. Government has too big a role in all we do, is intrusive, burdensome and discourages innovation and job creation. And the state legislature just imposed an additional $230 million in new taxes! We have to reverse course in New Mexico, allowing individuals and small businesses to keep more of their earnings--for investment and job expansion. That will also encourage creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, leading to new job opportunities for more New Mexicans. Increased taxes force many small businesses to cut jobs at precisely the moment we are experiencing a serious economic downturn. Like you, David Doyle understands these basic economic realities and wants to bring that same common-sense understanding to Santa Fe.
