Gov Holds Open Office Hours

Gov. Bill Richardson will hold open Office Hours next week for people who want to discuss ways to balance the state budget.

Still no word on exactly when the special session of the Legislature will be. Richardson's still saying October.

Richardson will grant five-minute meetings on a first-come, first-served basis. "People must provide their driver’s license for a background check by State Police," a news release said. "Anyone representing a group or organization should be prepared to meet with the Governor as a group."

Here's the schedule:

Wednesday, Sept. 16 (Santa Fe)

Meetings will be in the Governor’s Office in Santa Fe between 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. People can start signing up as early as noon.

Friday, Sept. 18 (Albuquerque)

Meetings will be from 1:00-5:00 p.m. at the CNM Workforce Training Center, 500 Eagle Rock Avenue N.E.
