If Governor Richardson tryly cares about the envirnment and renewable energy in New Mexicio, he should put his money where his mouth is, and insist that the Santa Fe County baord of commissioners act responsibly towards their constitutents and the land. Tecon Energy, which is probably actively lobbying the Governor, WILL destroy the Galisteo basin if they are given the unhampered access to the area promised by the new draft ordinance. If a ballot referendum were possible, Governor Richardson would find that virtually the entire county is opposed to Tecton's activities. Giving away the county to oil and gas is regressive and short-sighted, at best. The whole deal reeks of corruption.
If he doesn't want to get his hands dirty, the Governor would be well advised to investigate the special relationships between certain commissioners and Tecton, particularly Steve Ross, Virginia Vigil, and Paul Campos.
