Update: call TODAY to save your pay, retirement, and health care! (Political Update #7)
Republican State Representative Larry Larranaga has tried for years to hand over public services to private, for-profit companies. If he succeeds, virtually every city, county, university, and state employee in New Mexico could lose your retirement, health care, and take a big pay cut.
Make Phone Calls and Write Emails NOW! (see below for committee targets)
This year, Rep. Larranaga's bill is House Bill 275, and it's being heard in the House Transportation Committee tomorrow, Thursday, February 16. He has all the Republican votes locked down, and since it's a 5-5 committee, that means that we need all 5 Democrats to be present and to vote "NO" on House Bill 275.
Don't let the big corporations take away your health care, retirement, and pay, just to fatten their profits. Make the calls NOW, and ask that each of these representatives votes NO on House Bill 275. Make the calls on your own phone and on your own time (like during lunch or a break), and be kind to the workers answering the phone. Thanks!
Chair Bobby Gonzales (D-Taos)
[NOTE: Rep. Ruiloba and Rep. Garcia have the same phone number--you can leave a message for each on the same call!]
