Republican Party of New Mexico Releases Statement on Results of Vote on Santa Fe Sugary Beverage Tax

Albuquerque, NM – Today, the Republican Party of New Mexico released the following statement on the results of the vote on Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gonzales’ proposed tax on sugary beverages:

“Santa Fe voters made the right choice today,” said Republican Party of New Mexico Spokesman Tucker Keene. “This tax would have hurt local businesses and working families while doing nothing to increase access to healthier beverage options. The Santa Fe County Republican Party worked tirelessly to defeat this misguided tax hike with phone calls, letters to the editor, and research showcasing why Mayor Gonzales’ proposal was wrong for Santa Fe. We hope that the defeat of this tax plan will allow Santa Fe’s government to seek better solutions on nutrition and child care.”
