SANTA FE (AP) – New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and other officials are headed to Southern California to woo business leaders.
Martinez, state Economic Development Secretary Jon Barela and officials from Albuquerque and Rio Rancho will be in California through Wednesday.
The governor’s office says they’ll be meeting with business executives and site selectors to talk about New Mexico’s manufacturing and business competiveness.
The governor made a similar trip to the San Francisco area last year.
The expenses of the governor and her chief of staff, Keith Gardner, are being paid for by the New Mexico Partnership, the marketing arm of the state Economic Development Department.
