Last week, state Rep. Eleanor Chavez, D-Albuquerque, wrote on Facebook that she held a town hall with her constituents. She said they told her they opposed a food tax and education cuts, wanted to close corporate loopholes and pushed reform of the tax structure.
She said she walked away impressed.
Wait a minute. State lawmakers hold town halls?
Apparently, some do. Our lawmakers held one at Luna Community College in the summer, but they haven’t held one in the months leading up to the annual legislative session, which starts this week.
