Governor Susana Martinez: Make protecting New Mexico's water a priority now!

New Mexico and the Southwest are in the midst of a severe drought. What little water New Mexico has is now under threat.

And yet, since her inauguration in January 2011, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez has aggressively been dismantling water and other environmental protections that have been in place for decades. She has taken radical actions for the benefit of mining companies, oil and gas drilling companies, and other industries that seek to freely pollute New Mexico's scarce resources to make a buck.

Knowing that 90% of New Mexicans rely on groundwater for their drinking water, a sane policy would work to conserve and protect that water, not allow it to be polluted so some companies can make a profit.

Write Governor Martinez now and let her know that we the people are watching and we demand that she make protecting New Mexico's water a priority NOW.
