Petitions are being circulated throughout the community, requesting that Truth or Consequences City Commissioners follow the will of the people, and demanding that they set aside all private and personal interests, whatever they may be, and work solely for the benefit and in the interests of the residents of the city.
The petitions also demand that the city commission recognize that the residents of the city object to any and all commercial development of properties along Interstate 25 that may be detrimental to the economic growth of the city’s downtown area.
The petition is opposed to the development of a truck stop, or any other private facilities by the airport, or at any other freeway location with the city limits.
It also is opposed to the placement of the Spaceport Welcome Center on any land adjacent to I-25, or otherwise less beneficial to the great downtown area. And it requests no publicly-owned land be given, sold, traded, leased or in any other way transferred to private interest without a public hearing.
The petition notes that the residents have the right to recall and replace any officials shown to be working in any way for special interests, and against the interests of this community.
