Best Political Scandal 2008

And Yes, Road Construction Is a Scandal

July 23, 2008, 12:00 am
OK, given how we worded this category, perhaps it’s no surprise that construction on Guadalupe Street rose to the top of scandalous events for this year’s voters. Quick recap: Last winter, the city tore up the street, then it got really cold (as it sometimes does in the winter), work stopped, ruts froze and the entire area was a barely negotiable mess for drivers, not to mention the local businesses in the area. While the Guadalupe Street construction—and construction in general—garnered the most votes in this write-in category, there were several other hot topics, including: the fall-out from Gov. Bill Richardson’s endorsement of Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama (the governor’s facial hair also garnered a few votes) and proposed oil and gas drilling in the Galisteo Basin.
