Gov. Susana Martinez just announced that Cabinet secretaries in her administration will earn less than those under Gov. Bill Richardson. She also said that no secretary will earn more than $125,000 a year. No details yet, however, on specific salaries.
"Families and small businesses across New Mexico are being forced to balance their budgets and cut back on their spending," she said.
"It’s time for government to do the same and my cabinet will be leading by example."
Martinez also has said that the cumulative salaries for her administration will be 10 percent less than those of the Richardson administration.
