Bill Fulginiti, Exec Director, New Mexico Municipal League
Air Dates: September 28-30, 2019
This week, REPORT FROM SANTA FE speaks with Bill Fulginiti, Executive Director of the New Mexico Municipal League, discussing such hot topics as cybersecurity, immigration, tax reform and internet sales taxes, and the $1 billion appropriated to fund roads in NM ($460 million of which is for new roads).
The New Mexico Municipal League represents all 106 New Mexico cities. And although New Mexicans think of themselves as living in wide-open rural spaces, 68% of our total population lives in cities.
Fulginiti discusses highlights from last month's Annual Conference of the Municipal League in Las Cruces, describing Governor Lujan-Grisham's speech detailing her ambition for the State to be a cooperative and collaborative partner with local governments. In terms of immigration and border issues, Fulginiti points out that the real work goes on in local communities like Deming and Las Cruces.
