Article examines legislators’ personal e-mail use
The article quotes state Rep. Eleanor Chavez, D-Albuquerque, as saying legislators are in a different category than the governor, who has been under fire because she and other members of her administration were using personal e-mail accounts to discuss public business.
“We’re a citizen legislature, not state employees,” the Reporter quoted Chavez as saying.
I’m quoted in the article disagreeing with Chavez.
“They get per deim, they get retirement benefits — they get compensation for their job. And I don’t think that’s the point,” I was quoted as saying. “They’re public officials.”
