A Las Cruces wish list for the new year

For our community, please send more rain. (I promise to be better conserving water!) I’d also ask: 

Bumper crops for produce vendors at our vibrant farmers market, more people buying healthy, tasty local food — and growing some at home; and McDonalds ceasing to sell, so-called “nutritious” junk food that contributes to heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.

Removal of the eyesore on Main, between Lohman and Amador, a developer’s giant middle-finger to city government, which officials keep promising is being dealt with. (And could you remove Amador Live, or at least lower its noise volume to sane, healthy levels?)

Meaningful, evidence-based discussion of school policies, with folks on all sides actually listening. 

More water!

A higher vaccination rate, both to boost community health and to minimize disruption to our economy, health, recreational pursuits, and hanging out with friends and family.
