Tell these legislators to 'dump ALEC now!'

Tell these legislators to DUMP ALEC NOW
August 12, 2013

These state legislators outed themselves as ALEC members when they signed a letter to a US Senator.  

Read the full letter embedded below

In just the past two elections, ALEC dumped more than $1,000,000 into the campaigns of New Mexico legislators and the ALEC caucus in the Roundhouse is growing.


Rep. Yvette Herrell (R- Alamogordo) :  (575) 430-2113

Sen. William Burt (R-Alamogordo): (575) 434-6140

Sen. Lee Cotter (R - Las Cruces): (575) 525-3200

and ALEC State Chairman Sen. Bill Payne (R- Albuquerque):
(505) 293-5703

New Mexico is a target for corporations looking to buy our politicians –
ALEC is adding members and the Koch Brothers are setting up shop.

You already know ALEC as the organization that pushed the NRA-backed
“Stand Your Ground” law on Florida and is pushing pro-big oil “free to frack”
legislation that keeps us from knowing what chemicals they pump into our

Common Cause New Mexico has already asked our attorney general to
investigate the secret ALEC “scholarship” slush fund but until he does
they keep using it to fund lavish trips like this for some speed dating
with big corporate funders.

The first thing we have to do to take back our democracy is get our
legislators out of ALEC. 

Call these ALEC members and tell them to DUMP ALEC NOW!   They went to the ALEC convention and sold New Mexico as open for business – we have to welcome them home with another message.

“ALEC is not right for New Mexicans":  former ALEC member, State Senator George Munoz
