News New Mexico is launching the “SAVE THE LAS CRUCES PUBLIC SCHOOLS $1 MILLION CAMPAIGN.”
News New Mexico travelled to the north end of Sonoma Ranch boulevard on the east mesa of Las Cruces today to take pictures of the area we are calling, “The emerging fiasco of the North Sonoma Ranch Boulevard - City Council Special Assessment District - Soon to be a $1 million scandal.”
What the pictures reveal is that there is still the opportunity for the citizens and taxpayers in our area to help LCPS save $1 million that they are being forced to spend. Story here. The first picture (top left) shows a distant view of Monte Vista Elementary School which will open next month.
