Conservation Voters New Mexico
Report cards are out!
We’ve released our 2013 Conservation Scorecard. You can access it at CVNM.org/Scorecard. In the Scorecard, we report the votes cast on the most critical issues affecting our air, land, and water during the 2013 legislative session, as well as an evaluation of the environmental performance of Gov. Susana Martinez.
Scorecards are a clear and comprehensive means for New Mexican citizens like you to see how well your elected officials are representing conservation values at the state capitol.
Water was by far the hottest conservation issue of this year’s session. More than half of the measures scored this year reflect deep disagreement over the management of our state’s scarce water supplies.
As our population grows and water supplies dwindle—exacerbated by the growing effects of climate change—we must work even harder to keep our water clean. Sadly, the votes tell the story: legislative actions to proactively protect our water resources were the exception, not the rule.
Remember to say “thanks” or “no thanks” to your legislators. Your legislators’ contact information is on our Scorecard website. It’s the only way elected officials will know if they are representing their constituents well.
We have an opening for a Political Director. The application deadline is Dec. 6.
