New Legislative Team at New Mexican

I'm about to witness my 14th regular session of the New Mexico Legislature as a Capitol reporter for The New Mexican. But this year the paper is beefing up its legislative coverage.

I'll be joined this by two veteran reporters who will be working out of the Roundhouse media room.

Milan Simonich and I have been office-mates at the Capitol for about two years. He was the Roundhouse reporter for the Texas-New Mexico Newspapers chain during that time, but now he's working for us. He's started a new blog called Ringside Seat, which I recommend you follow.

Also joining us here is Patrick Malone, who has covered the Colorado state Legislature for several years before coming to The New Mexican.

We'll also have other New Mexican reporters at the Capitol, including Robert Nott, covering educational issues (rumor has it this will be a major area of concern during the session) and Staci Matlock covering environmental issues.

Speaking of blogs, The New Mexican has a whole lot of those now. You can find those HERE)
