Weekly Word: Combined reporting, ABQ mayor race, political non-profit

The Weekly Word recorded in Santa Fe this week, splitting it into three topics. Kind of like an episode of This American Life but without the production values, calm and soothing voices or theme.

You can listen to the full podcast below.

Joey Peters and myself were joined by Santa Fe Reporter staff writer Justin Horwath. Horwath spoke about Prosperity New Mexico, a non-profit with an early document that explicitly said it was to help promote Democrats for office — a no-no in the 501(c)4 game.

We also discussed a story on combined reporting that I wrote for Albuquerque Business First. The combined reporting bill was targeted at big box stores — but was further watered down so as to exempt big box stores with 750 or more employees at non-retail locations.

We also touched on the Albuquerque mayoral race and what Pete Dinelli qualifying for public financing means — and how the organizational clout it showed may be as valuable than the $362,000 in public funding that Dinelli received.
