Richardson: Spaceport America “is the future”

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson paid a visit to Las Cruces and stumped for Spaceport America, saying that voters should approve tax referenda in three southern counties in April. “I’m asking every citizen to go out and vote yes on the spaceport because it is the future,” Richardson said in a speech at a Las Cruces middle school. The event did attract a “handful” of protestors outside the school who oppose the tax increase. One of them said they plan to organize a formal group to oppose the tax in the upcoming referendum, in an effort to counter the pro-spaceport group People for Aerospace.
