Susana Martinez—Una Loba ...

... con piel de cordero

Susana Martinez, una loba con piel de cordero, a wolf in sheep’s clothing

Something's very creepy about next month’s race for governor. There’s also something scary about the Susana Martinez message; her campaign speeches sound like tea party noise. And something is wrong with her sudden rise to power. Why is Martinez the nominee? Republicans have no substantive platform to offer the majority of New Mexicans. Therefore, their desperate strategy was to import a Hispanic from El Paso, Texas, hoping New Mexicans will base their vote on skin color more than policy issues. The scary thing is that this primitive strategy may work.

In her campaign rhetoric, Martinez will avoid specifics and just throw out glittering generalities like “government is corrupt.” This is true. Governments are corrupt not only in New Mexico but across the nation, under both Republican and Democratic administrations. Moreover, they’ve been corrupt for generations. This does nothing to address the pressing issues facing us like unemployment, poverty, the education crisis, environmental decay & economic instability

It is disturbing to see polls showing Hispanics favoring Martinez. It must be because of her last name, because it’s common knowledge that registered Democrats outnumber Republicans, especially among Hispanics. Are Hispanics falling for her empty promises of “bold change?" Hope not, because their livelihoods have never been of much concern to Republican leadership at either state or national levels. Everyone knows that Republican policies favor the wealthy, while Democrats are supposed to help the poor.

New Mexico is a poor state. I am a young Hispanic woman, who shares the same last name with Martinez. However, that is where the similarities end. My family has lived in New Mexico for generations. They reside in our poorest counties (Rio Arriba and San Miguel). The majority are civil servants, ranchers and laborers, or they work for small businesses. Policies favored by Republicans punish the typical Hispanic/working poor. Therefore I can’t understand why a working class or middle class Hispanic would vote for the Republican candidate and against their interest. When Susana says that it’s not the government’s responsibility to create jobs, she needs to go talk to N.M. residents who depend on state jobs. I’m especially irked that these people, mi gente, are so willing to cast a vote for her when she’s so willing to accept a paycheck from the state at their expense.

Susana is willing to take your vote, but she won’t enact policies that benefit you or communities in any significant way. Her ideas on education are ill-informed. Her ignorant statements regarding border security demonstrate a lack of understanding concerning state vs. federal jurisdiction. We need a governor who seeks to provide us with the best education and gives us good job opportunities in both the public and private sectors. Susana is not this person.

My mother would warn us around election time to be wary of politicians who use their ethnicity to win favor among a group when their policies actually harm the very people who brought them into office. She called them “lobos con piel de cordero,” or "wolves in sheep’s clothing."
