3,2,1 Blast off...
This week has been a pretty busy week at the Round up, Gov. Richardson came into town to discuss a few things concerning the state not to mention his presidential bid for the 2008 elections. These photos were shot in and around Vista middle school Monday afternoon, the main focus for this rally was the new spaceport that is going to be build outside of Las Cruces. The main point Richardson made was that New Mexican should support a new tax increase to help pay for the spaceport.
Down the street from Vista Mitch Boyer stood with others who were protesting the proposed tax increase. The protesters felt that this tax increase should be used to support local community needs. One example they gave was the funding of volunteer fire fighting units that could use more money for equipment and other items.
