(ALBUQUERQUE) -- The Democratic Party of New Mexico today launched "Where are the Jobs?" an ad questioning Governor Martinez's actions when it comes to the most important issue facing New Mexico -- jobs.
The 60-second ad will run in the Albuquerque metro area through the end of the legislative session. You can listen to the ad below:
"Here we have a governor who's clearly pushing a political and divisive agenda when the most important issue facing our state is job creation," said DPNM Chairman Javier Gonzales. "Apparently Governor Martinez's plan is to do nothing and wait for the economy to improve on its own. That won't cut it."
"At least the Democrats in the Legislature have been talking about investing in our workforce and preserving new and innovative industries like film and renewable energy," Gonzales continued. "I don't think one innovative idea has escaped Martinez's lips this entire legislative session. What we have heard is a lot of political hot air.
The script for "Where are the Jobs?" is below:
Gail: Hi Teresa, How are you?
Teresa: Oh Hi Gail, I’m ok - Have you seen the news lately? I can’t believe what Governor Susana Martinez has been doing.
Gail: Well obviously she hasn’t been focused on creating jobs, my husband is still out of work and Governor Martinez is spending all her time on her divisive agenda. Ugh, thought the campaign was over. Does she even have a jobs plan?
Teresa: I don’t think she has one and didn’t she just attack the film industry? I heard New Mexico just lost the possibility for 1,500 new jobs including 700 construction jobs.
Gail: Well, we better start clipping more coupons because with Governor Martinez’s backwards priorities my husband is never going to find a job.
There are just a few days left in the legislative session. Call Governor Martinez at (505) 476-2200 and ask her to stop playing political games. She needs to get NM’s priorities straight and stop killing the jobs our families need. Paid for by the Democratic Party of New Mexico, not authorized by any candidate or candidates committee.
