Recently Robert Cordingley was elected to the New Mexicans for Money Out of Politics board of directors following the resignation of Ishwari Solluhub. Robert has been an active MOP member for almost two years. He is MOP’s webmaster and a member of the outreach committee. The MOP board is very fortunate to have Robert with his expertise in developing websites, project management and related matters.
The efforts of committed NM MOP 28th Amendment Committee members are paying off, with nine New Mexican candidates and elected officials signing the American Promise Candidate and Elected Official 28th Amendment Pledge. We are thilled to have their support in this important work. We hope to have support from all our candidates for public office. We are actively growing our list of pledged incumbents too. With over 175 signers nationally to date, NM MOP is well represented, and very happy to announce the dedicated pledgers in our state.
As a 501(c)(3) organization, we do not endorse or support any candidates, and as a nonpartisan organization, we do not target or exclude any person or group. Our signers come from various parts of the state, and a variety of parties and political orientations. NM MOP has made every attempt to offer the pledge to candidates and elected officials across the board. We are delighted every time we learn that we have a new signer.
American Promise founder and president Jeff Clements spoke at the Aldea Community Center to an attentive audience of over 50 people last Sunday, April 22. He shared the motivations, cross-partisan support and progress being made for a 28th Amendment to The Constitution to restore American democracy in which “we citizens – not money, not corporations, not special interests – govern ourselves.” Audience members participated in a lively and informative Q & A session.
NMMOP hosted this successful event which was co-sponsored by Common Cause New Mexico and American Promise. In attendance were a candidate for the NM House of Representatives, NM Senate Majority Leader Peter Wirth and Santa Fe City Councilor Carol Romero-Wirth, Viki Harrison from Common Cause New Mexico and Steve Lipscom from FixItAmerica
