STEVE PEARCE'S FOUR POINT PLAN FOR JOBS AND ECONOMIC GROWTH
ALBUQERQUE—Steve Pearce, candidate for Governor of New Mexico, announced his plan to improve road safety in southeastern New Mexico by partnering with companies to construct private toll roads for commercial and oil and gas traffic. Pearce met with local business and community leaders in Carlsbad to announce his plan.
"We have all heard the tragic stories of accidents on our highways in southeastern New Mexico," said Pearce. "The roads are overcrowded and stressed beyond capacity, creating an unsafe situation for our New Mexico families and workers.
ALBUQERQUE — Steve Pearce, candidate for Governor, announced today he is calling on both parties to come together to change New Mexico law to prevent dangerous offenders from pretrial release. Steve Pearce issued the following statement:
"Our nation and our state have seen far too many preventable crimes where law enforcement failed to act. Recently, in Taos County, law enforcement did act to protect children and safeguard the community. The courts, however, ordered that they be released back into the community. The allegations in the case are horrifying, including the unexplained death of a child, child abuse, and terrorism. To millions of Americans, including me, it is unfathomable that those defendants would be released into the community.

Ruidoso, NM—Steve Pearce, candidate for Governor, announced today his Forestry Management Plan for all of New Mexico.
"New Mexico is a stunning and beautiful state. One of our great benefits is the vast expanse of undeveloped areas. We have abundant public land and that land should be accessible to all. As an avid hiker and backpacker, I value the majesty of our national forests, the solitude of our wilderness and the limitless horizon of the eastern side of the state. I believe it is critical that we invest in forest management to protect our forests and watersheds from the impact of extreme fire and drought. These lands are the lifeblood of our rural economy including tourism, forest products, and agriculture.
To entrepreneur and gubernatorial candidate Congressman Steve Pearce, the preservation of New Mexico's core industries – oil, gas, timber and coal – is the key to solving many of the state's financial and social problems.
For too long, he said, decision makers have chosen policy over people, and these same decision makers have fallen into a pattern of treating the symptoms of New Mexico's problems instead of the problems themselves.
ALBUQUERQUE – District Court Judge Sarah Backus, an elected Democrat, has released the suspects from the Taos County terrorist compound until their trial begins. According to media reports, suspects will be released on a signature bond, and will not have to post bail prior to their release.
"Judge Backus has put New Mexicans at risk by releasing suspected terrorists back into the community," said RPNM Chairman Ryan Cangiolosi. "By releasing these suspects without even requiring them to post bail, Judge Backus has put people in danger and created the risk that they could flee and harm other children and communities as well. If New Mexico Democratic Party leaders are serious about keeping our state safe, they should join me in denouncing Judge Backus and the incredible failure of leadership and judgment demonstrated by her terrible decision."
ALBUQUERQUE—Former Democratic Governor Jerry Apodaca today endorsed Steve Pearce for Governor. In an oped published in the Albuquerque Journal former Governor Apodaca writes:
"These past years I have sat on the sidelines very quietly enjoying my life with my family and friends, observing from a distance. I know the new politicians of the 21st century don't need my advice. But friends recently suggested I sit down with both gubernatorial candidates to discuss the concerns I outlined above. I agreed to but didn't expect anyone to call.
