Gov. Martinez: Send us a refund

To be delivered to Jay McCleskey, Susana Martinez Campaign Manager and Governor Susana Martinez

Petition Statement

State police helicopters should be used for law enforcement, not as your personal air taxi to attend political fundraisers.

In the campaign, you promised not to use state aircraft as a personal air taxi. Now you say you did just that.

Shame on you and your political team for this abuse of power. I demand an apology and a refund to taxpayers for the cost of the trip.
There are currently 2,424 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Gov. Susana Martinez used a State Police helicopter to fly to Albuquerque so she could catch a commercial flight to Houston for political fundraisers.

Even though she promised not to use state aircraft for personal purposes, she took a State Police helicopter away from law enforcement duties to be her personal air taxi.

It took about an hour to fly Martinez to Albuquerque, then return to Santa Fe. The hourly operating cost of the helicopter is about $800.
