Hey, New Mexico and Illinois!

In keeping with our efforts to fight proposed energy taxes through ad campaigns and grassroots activism, we want to make you aware of two additional rallies at locations near you:

New Mexico will be hosting a Rally for Jobs next Wednesday, September 8, at McGee Park in Farmington to protest legislation that would further threaten our already embattled economy and energy security. Speakers include Marita Noon, Executive Director, Citizens Alliance for Responsible Energy (CARE); Dr. James Henderson, San Juan County Commissioner and Former President, San Juan College; and Rep. Tom Taylor (R-San Juan County), Minority Leader, New Mexico House of Representatives.
