A Santa Fe New Mexican columnist published an article entitled “A new choice for worst state legislator” on March 16th. The subject of Mr. Milan Simonich’s criticism was our own Senator Bill Sharer, R-Farmington.
The following is our response:
To call Senator Bill Sharer New Mexico’s worst state legislator is to defame a champion of New Mexico politics, a man who has given the state 23 years of consistent dedicated service. If you randomly ask anyone if they sense the nation has over-reacted to the coronavirus, inevitably you’ll get the answer “yes.” Senator Sharer’s only mistake was saying it out loud. The good Senator has often stood in opposition to knee-jerk policies and legislation in the State Senate.
For example, destroying the major employment opportunity for New Mexico’s Native Americans in the four-corners region is unconscionable, especially when the technology to save those jobs is available. When conservative New Mexicans want to know what’s really going on, politics aside, it has always Senator Bill Sharer whose voice we can trust. Senator Sharer, as one of the longest serving Senators, is also one of the most cherished.
