Title: Should the State Treasurer and the State Auditor Be Appointed?
Author: Governor's Task Force on Ethics Reform
Subject(s): Governmental Ethics
Political Reform
New Mexico
Appointive Office
State Auditor
State Treasurer
Abstract: The impetus for this issue arises from the difficulty of disciplining or removing an official from elective office in the case of misconduct. Currently, the only provision for enforcement is impeachment. Impeachment is an expensive and burdensome procedure, especially for legislators who must devote great amounts of extra time. Also, voters are wary of any process which overturns their will as expressed at the polls. The practical effect of this situation is to remove accountability from these offices. The checks and balances that are central to successful governance are absent. Below is a discussion of whether making State Treasurer and State Auditor appointive would be an improvement.
