The serious but pleasant-looking lab student in safety glasses and latex gloves says it all: “A vote for Bond C is a vote for me.”
Moreover, continues the young man pictured on the pro-Bond C website, it’s not just about buildings. “It’s about ensuring higher-ed students have the tools to excel in their fields and contribute to our economy. It’s about renovating old, out-of-date classrooms and providing the technology necessary to compete with other states – and around the world. It’s about bringing 1,400 new jobs to New Mexico. Bond C is about New Mexico’s future!”
As good as that may sound to potential voters, the pro-Bond C folks are taking no chances. Still smarting over the defeat of a higher education bond issue four years ago by the slimmest of margins, they are looking to repeat the rebound victory in 2012.
