12 October 2012
 
 The Honorable Dianna Duran
 
New Mexico Secretary of State
 
325 Don Gaspar, Suite 300
 
Santa Fe, NM 87501
 
Ms. Duran,
 
Please let this letter (also attached) serve as a formal complaint against the Reform New Mexico Now PAC, John Ryan for State Senate, and the Committee to Elect Nate Gentry for improper coordination between thesegroups.
 
On October 9
th
I became aware of a mailer sent by John Ryan for State Senate (see attached) that lists theReform New Mexico Now PAC as its return address (PO Box 35892, Albuquerque, NM 87176-5892). TheReform New Mexico Now PAC appears to have designed and disseminated the John Ryan for State Senatemail piece in violation of rules governing coordination between PACs and candidates.
 
Further evidence of improper coordination between the Reform New Mexico Now PAC and state politicalcampaigns can be found in a previous mailer sent by the Committee to Elect Nate Gentry.
The aforementioned  John Ryan for State Senate mailer is almost identical in design and content to a mailer sent out by the Committee to Elect Nate Gentry earlier this year.
Both mailers use an identical rope and knot image as a symbol for the tax loopholediscussed in the mailers. Furthermore, the wording of each mailer is almost identical, with only a few wordchanges between the two (see attached).
 
Here are the examples of the almost identical language in two separate mailers sent by John Ryan for StateSenate and the Committee to Elect Nate Gentry:
 
Ryan mailer
 
“…when out-of –state corporations exploited a loophole in the law to take jobs that belonged to New Mexico workers, John Ryan stood up and stopped it.”
 
Gentry mailer
 
 
“…when out-of-state corporations unfairly used a loophole to steal jobs that belonged to New Mexico workers, Nate Gentry took action to stop them.”
 
Ryan mailer
 
Protecting New Mexico Jobs
 
 When the state bids out work paid for by New Mexico tax dollars, those jobs are supposed to go toNew Mexico workers. But some out-of-state corporations found a loophole that let them unfairly qualify as New Mexico businesses in order to get state contracts. Then they sent those jobs to workersin other states.
 
 John Ryan stood up for our jobs and passed a law that closed the loophole ensuring those jobs stay inNew Mexico. Closing the loophole could create 3,000 to 7,000 New Mexico jobs each year.
 
Gentry mailer
 
 
Protecting NM Jobs
 
 When the state bids out work paid for by New Mexico tax dollars, those jobs are supposed to go toNew Mexico workers. But some greedy, out-of-state corporations exploited a loophole in the law that was meant to ensure those jobs went to New Mexico small businesses.
 
 These out-of-state corporations pretended to be New Mexico businesses to get state contracts, thenshipped our jobs out of the state.
 
Nate Gentry passed a law that closed the loophole and stopped those out-of-state corporations fromstealing jobs. Closing the loophole could create 3,000 to 7,000 New Mexico jobs each year.
