Homeowners hopeful for legislative foreclosure help
New Mexico Comunidades en Acción
More than 55 community leaders from Chaparral, Anthony and Las Cruces are preparing to trek to Santa Fe this week to advocate for many of their issues. One of the issues is stopping preventable foreclosures. Since the end of 2011, New Mexico has seen a huge climb in the numbers of foreclosures, mostly due to unemployment. However, measures to protect homeowners have not been been able to pass in the last legislative sessions.
Last week, Gov. Susana Martinez sent a message to senate asking to hear legislation that could help thousands of families stay in their homes. Southern New Mexico families are cautiously optimistic that the governor and the Legislature can come up with common sense and pragmatic solutions to helping homeowners across our state.
NM Comunidades en Accion y de Fe (CAFe) and its partners, United South Broadway, Partnership for Community Action and local and state community officials will hold a news conference on Wednesday to show continued support for legislative action on foreclosures and to urge the governor and other legislators to keep fighting for the families of New Mexico.
