Governor Richardson's 2007 State of the State Address
Here is the text of Governor Richardson's 2007 State of the State Address.
And here is a sample of what the Governor said:
We can take the timid path of the status quo, or continue down the path to progress with bold steps and strong action.Substitute United States of America for the great state of New Mexico in that last paragraph and you've got the makings of one heckuva stump speech in the Presidential campaign.
As I’ve said before---Let us choose to be bold. Let us choose to act. Let’s choose to make a difference.
We care too deeply for this generation and every one that follows to do anything other than make a difference for the people we serve, in the place that we cherish—the great state of New Mexico.
