All Politics is Local

In its day, Debbie Jaramillo’s 1994 upset mayoral victory was seen by many as a referendum on Mayor Sam Pick’s pro-development policies in Santa Fe during the 1980s and early 1990s. When the two served together in city chambers—Jaramillo was a city councilor before she became mayor—they often engaged in heated debates on the issues of the day. On Thursday, Dec. 5, both mayors will be back together sharing their views on a current heated local topic: proposed changes to the City Charter that would give more political powers to Santa Fe’s mayor. The pair will be speaking at the Neighborhood Law and Policy Conference, which will be held at the Santa Fe Community Convention Center that day and Friday, Dec. 6. Members of the public are encouraged to attend the conference, which is free and is scheduled both days between 8 am and 5 pm. Other topics to be discussed in panels include resisting foreclosures, addressing health care competition without forgetting about patients needs and conserving Santa Fe’s water supply. Roughly 140 people attended the conference last year, according to Fred Rowe, the president of the Neighborhood Law Center who’s helping organize the event. (Joey Peters)
