Surprising Contributor to Spaceport Tax PAC

Richardson's presidential campaign donated to help get spaceport tax passed

"Gov. Bill Richardson's unsuccessful presidential campaign was the largest contributor to a political action committee that pushed for passage of a spaceport tax referendum in Sierra County last April, according to reports submitted to the New Mexico Secretary of State's office. The Richardson for President campaign gave $10,000 to People for Aerospace of Sierra County on April 8, two weeks before the April 22 vote in which Sierra residents overwhelmingly approved the tax, clearing the way for a spaceport taxation district."
