A busy week with the launch of our 2018-19 Election and Legislative Strategy and several actions at the Roundhouse and PRC. And we also look forward to a week of action. Plus one absolutely critical action that will take you 5-10 minutes.

The Poor People’s Campaign NM launched, Retake Our Democracy’s Roundhouse Advocacy Strategy emerges, a win in the Supreme Court, and a daunting challenge in the Roundhouse Session: A PNM Wealth Grab. Details and calls to action captured in this blog.

Retake Plans for the coming Roundhouse Session; the Mayor’s race is beckoning; Progress NowNM Summit; Chainbreaker Edge of Equity series begins; and the PRC rescinds its decision to curb PNM cost recovery..

An excellent guest blog today from Bruce Berlin, friend, author and advocate for getting money out of politics. Great piece highlighting some of the absurdities of 2017 and some of the surprisingly positive developments, as well. A nice short read. Also a couple Retake announcements for 2018.
