I would like to follow up on Alex Montoya’s letter to the editor (published Sept. 9) about the Help New Mexico office in Mora County.
As a prior elected official, I can truly say, that the Help office is one of the programs that has been of much help, and proved to be effective to those less fortunate, who are not lazy, but need a shove in the right direction. These people who go to the Help office are the same people who cast their votes on election day. So be very careful with labels. As the saying goes, “There (but for) the grace of God go I.”
