DOCUMENTS: Mayor Gonzales Releases Transition Report

Call for change in City Hall, from outsiders and insiders

June 3, 2014, 3:45 pm

Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales on Tuesday released a report from his 36-member transition team.

The 140-page document calls for long-term and short term goals for Santa Fe, whose government has been suffering budget gaps and unfilled positions since the onset of the recession.

The transition team consisted of mostly City Hall outsiders (and some Gonzales campaign insiders and former city workers).

Gonzales asked the team to investigate strengths and weakness in city government. He asked them to identify how to change government the short term (100 days) and long term (6-12 months).

The mayor also tasked the team to identify steps toward three targets:

  • Economic diversification and job creation 
  • "Making this community a global leader in green energy."
  • Providing pathways for educational achievement for young people
