Commentary: New Mexico voters have an unprecedented chance to send an important message this November that New Mexico takes corruption seriously and will hold government officials, candidates, and contractors accountable when they cross ethical boundaries and violate the law.  As former statewide elected officials, we wince every time we see the state tarnished by poor national rankings for good government and ethics, and worry that the perception of corruption is costing us business and opportunities, discouraging civic participation and decreasing voter turnout.  New Mexico is one of only six states that does not have a statewide ethics commission.
