Gov.-elect Susana Martinez named certified public accountant and business owner Demesia Padilla as her nominee for the state Taxation and Revenue Department Secretary on Friday.
"I selected Ms. Padilla because she is a professional administrator, one who understands how New Mexico tax code affects businesses, families and certainly the parents that live in New Mexico," Martinez told an Albuquerque news conference Friday.
Padilla has owned and operated her own tax preparation and consulting business in New Mexico for 18 years, formerly worked as an IRS agent and ran an unsuccessful campaign for state treasurer in 2006.
Martinez said Padilla has a large agenda before her when Martinez's administration takes office Jan. 1. "Together, Ms. Padilla and I will promote reforms to our tax code to make it more understandable, business-friendly and fair," Martinez said.
"And as overseer of New Mexico's motor vehicle department, I have made it a priority for Ms. Padilla to develop a bill that will revoke the driver's licenses that have been issued thus far to illegal immigrants, as well as to change the law to no longer issue driver's licenses to illegal immigrants."

How about her for President? How can she lose?
The liberal heads will explode because they want women and minorities to be good communists/democrats.
This could shift some Hispanic votes to conservatism.
It sounds like you did yourselves proud with your new governor. She just came out of her corner swinging.
NM list PING!

“... a bill that will revoke the driver’s licenses that have been issued thus far to illegal immigrants, as well as to change the law to no longer issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.”
Happy days are here again! Bless you, Susanna, and thanks!
good luck! Naming Padilla is genius! Very pragmatic!
She has a record of doing that. A gun-toting security guard at 17, a Republican district attorney in a heavily Democratic county, many successful prosecutions of drug criminals, and of perps who committed sex crimes against women and children. Her husband is under-sheriff for Dona Ana County (will resign with her becoming governor). She is one tough customer.
Sugar ants will leave if there is no sugar IMO.
More like VP. But she needs time to build up a resume. BTW, Hispanics who want to get ahead need to join the Republican Party. They will soon get to the head of the line, at least for State-wide offices.
Now if Washington State would do that. Fat chance.
there will be a big bulls-eye on her back. The Democrats will be going over her life with a fine tooth comb, looking for any bit of dirt, real or imagined.
I hear Dan Rather has a big ranch in the area. He may be able to type something up for them.
I hope she is ready.
