    Coming to terms with President Trump

    Now that the unthinkable (for me and most of my friends, and the pundits) has happened, and after the initial shock, I am seeking a few things to be hopeful about in a Trump presidency.

    Resignations are in order at Luna
    Nepotism is a threat to most employees. Undue power attaches to those connected to powerful persons.

    However ethical or capable in fact, nepotic employees are perceived to be incompetent tale carriers and unfair competition.  The result is an unhealthy workplace seething with discontent.

    City portrayed unfairly
    There is no way I can remain silent about the recent article by the Albuquerque Journal and the harsh portrayal of boarding homes in Las Vegas and surrounding area.

    Having lived in Las Vegas all my life and volunteering as an ombudsman for the New Mexico State Agency on Aging for almost five years, I find it hard to learn that no state agency regulates boarding homes for recently released patients of the New Mexico Behavioral Health Institute.

    Voters should support Bond C
    In order for Highlands University to attract students, it is important to have an infrastructure that is inviting and welcoming. Over the years HU has done a great job in building dorms and new classrooms. It is time to spend money renovating the historical buildings on campus.

    Don’t be hasty in passing judgment
    As a friend of Mayor Tonita Gurule-Giron and resident of Las Vegas, I would hope that voters would at least give the mayor 12 months in office before passing judgment on her performance.

    I was surprised to read that the petition advocates claim that the last election was fraudulent. What proof do they have, whether it is one vote or 20? A win is a win. One cannot expect a new administration to fulfill campaign promises or anything else in seven months.

    Trump a peddler of snake oil

    There is no doubt about it.  Donald Trump is an ace at grabbing interest, attention and headlines.  In the best tradition of all snake oil salesmen, he knows exactly what words to use to mesmerize his audience. And he knows exactly what buttons to push to get them to dig into their pockets and buy his product.

    AWC has done much for the community
    I will be honest, I am a supporter of the AWC. There are many reasons why, but the following will basically sum it up.

    In the past three years, they have coordinated thousands of volunteer hours (an average of 400 hours per month). They manage a successful Trap-Neuter-Release program funded by Zimmer Feline Foundation for feral cats.

    Wake up, El Norte!

    When will we start to include in election discussions the Green and Libertarian Parties as serious alternatives to the circus we call the two-party system? Are we not tired of candidates with close ties to wall street, war mongering, racism, hatred, and profit, profit, profit?
