State Senator Sue Wilson Beffort, R-Bernalillo
Senator Sue Wilson Beffort, R-Bernalillo, is on the fiscal warpath, and she wants the New Mexico Department of Health to own up to nepotist practices in hiring—during a hiring freeze.
The Department of Health, Beffort says, hired approximately 91 new employees after Gov. Richardson declared a hiring freeze. It’s not the first time—at least 62 people were hired during the 2008 hiring freeze—but this time, Beffort’s righteously mad.
“I have been called by people in the Health Department that are demoralized by the nepotism that has been going on in hiring non-emergency people,” Beffort says. “After the hiring freeze, the Health Department hired, I think, 91 people. They said they were all critical people, so I backed down.”
She’s done backing down.
“It is a misuse of their definitions when they are bringing in people [who are] put in receptionist jobs and then trained into financial positions,” Beffort says. “As it turns out, they are people who are friends and relatives of people in that budget division.”

 
So, without further ado, here’s a sampling of said friends and relatives:

Beffort’s accountability initiative began yesterday, during the first of the Legislative Finance Committee’s five days of meetings to discuss the intricacies of New Mexico’s financial woes, when she hammered New Mexico Finance Secretary Katherine Miller on the Governor’s plans for trimming the budget “systematically, with recurring money” instead of using one-time revenue sources like capital outlay cuts, federal stimulus funds, and the like.
Miller had the unenviable task of delivering dire news: In FY 2010 (which began October 1), the state’s recurring revenues will be $10.2 million lower than expected; in FY11, they’ll be $52.7 million lower. Extend that out to FY14, and we’re looking at $158.2 million less than we thought. Sigh.
“I would also question the 8,000 [jobs] that [Miller] indicated were already formulated,” Beffort adds. “Up in the Farmington area, they’ve been getting all this money, and there are no jobs being created. Plus, are they permanent jobs? Are we going to have the money to keep all these people working?”
Oh, and Santa Claus isn’t coming this year.

I have worked at DOH for 15+ years. Never in my time there have I observed such corruption as under this administration. In the last 4 years or so, I have witnessed the actions in the e-mail, performed by Ms. Gonzales and Deputy Secretary Duffy Rodriguez. Let us hope that this is not just another corruption performed under the Richardson/Denish administration that is ignored, and that this situation is pursued and the correct actions taken on it. This would make a great investigative piece for the Reporter. Do not let this story die. Thank you for covering this.

As an employee of DOH for the last 15+ years I have not seen a level of corruption as under the Richardson /Denish administration. All that is written in the e-mail is the truth and Ms. Gonzales and Deputy Secretary Duffy Rodriguez are guilty as charged. This would make an excellent piece of investigative reporting for the Santa Fe Reporter. Do not let this story die off as this is bigger than it seems.

As an EX-employee of DOH (thank god!) I can tell you that this is a LONG TIME COMING….what gets me is how it is lead to believe this JUST started going on during the hiring freeze? Ha! Bernice Gonzales is the reason DOH has lost MANY well qualified and hard-working employees….her constant hiring of her buddies and indeed going around the system to get them their high dollar salaries has been going on since she started working there and WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF senior mgmt… and many others. If you are not “with” Bernice and play HER game, she has NO use for you…funny it isn’t mentioned her son also worked there at one time too. Her management practices made for a NEGATIVE working environment as she chose to favor those that would gossip with her over those that just wanted to do their jobs. And how nobody saw it BEFORE this article is even a bigger joke….you know what they say…”you scratch my back, I scratch yours”….it would be of interest if this indeed to be investigated for the HR department at DOH to also be questioned as she has her “circle of friends” there as well….at one time I was proud to say I worked for the Department of Health….now I just thank my DEAR LORD I left because even today I still speak with old friends and NOTHING has changed, only HER promotions, those of her BUDDIES and their wallets getting fatter by the hour…..they are truly the reason some people think there are LAZY state employees because they give state employees a bad name. The hard working loyal employees of that Department that I still know to work there are treated so badly yet her and her buddies are treated so good…while everone around is sickened by what they continually see go on to be IGNORED…I hope that this is given its due attention and not just swept under the rug….I’m sure State Senator Beffort will be getting alot of feedback on this……hopefully she will do something about it.

I think this is a ridiculous waste of time. Did anybody take the time to research these allegations before going public with them?? EVERYBODY that was mentioned in the email exerpt above were hired before the hiring freeze and BEFORE Duffy Rodriguez was with DOH. The Department runs 7- 24/7 facilities with patients and if hiring needs to happen to secure the safety and well being of the patients-it must happen! The employees of the DOH however are taking on some of the burden of the State’s financial situation by agreeing to furloughs while committing to continued excellence in proving services to the citizens of the State even if that means working with no pay. What else is the Department to do? Every citizen of the State of New Mexico should be EXTREMELY upset that this time and energy is being wasted on stupid allegations instead of trying to figure out how not to cut the services that are so despartely needed in the State!

I wish that all these so called “DOH employees” had something better to do with their time (like working maybe) than to slander good, hardworking employees.

State employee who left DOH 
December 9th, 2009 at 2:03 pm
It’s about time.
I left DOH and am currently working in another State Department and I could not be happier. The later years I was at DOH, I became very despondent and depressed because of their hiring practices and the higher pay of those (family members) that were hired. It also hurt to watch “strangers” come in off the street, report for duty, and no one knew who they were or what position they were suppose to fill. They would proudly announce that they were Governor appointees. We’d scramble to find office space, desks, and other daily necessities only to have these “hires” either not show up on a regular basis or spend most of their time in the Secretary’s office.
I annually got one of the highest scored reviews and every year I either didn’t get a raise or got one that was so small, the increase in taxes and health care costs ate it up and then some. As much as I loved working at DOH, I had to leave. The frustration and anger because of these family members and Governor hires drove me close to just walking out of my job. Fortunately, I am now in a place where I am appreciated for my work and continue to receive one of the highest review scores in this Department. I haven’t totally escaped all the “Governor appointees” but I don’t work closely with them in this Department.
I’m glad this finally came out about DOH. However, I just am wondering if this will all eventually get swept under the rug like all things of this nature in State government. There are several employees out there that always get away with murder and no one says anything and nothing ever comes out of their mis-deeds. NOTHING. They’re all around and in every department. DOH is just the tip of the iceberg. As far as this type of thing is concerned, this Administration is the worst of all the Administrations I’ve worked under. Under the other Administrations, my great work was always rewarded and reflected in my annual pay increase. Those who didn’t work either got nothing, very little, or were let go. Under this Administration, I might as well have just sat in my office, read a good book, and I’d still would get pittance for my service to this great State. My conscious wouldn’t let me do that though. I’m from the old school, you work hard, you get great rewards for your hard work.
And to think, I voted for him the first time. I wised up the second time and didn’t vote for anyone for the Governor’s position. At least in this case, the State would have probably been better off without a Governor.

Kaitlyn, sounds like you are a close friend of the “Circle of Trust”. You are so defensive of them. Were you posting from work? I know for a fact after being at DOH for so long that Duffy was already there when the Niece (Maureeana), Turners, Boone’ s, and such were hired. The funny part is that your hero Duffy Rodriguez had to sign off on all these hires. If the Santa Fe Reporter wants the proof, use your rights under the Public Information Act and request the hiring information from Daniel Jacobs or Teresa Padilla who run our HR bureau to see when these folks official date of hire was. On the neice’s hire they might not be able to provide that information if indeed hiring documentation was destroyed, would’nt that be a crime? As far as money being shifted around, the Grant’s Section has gone through such a personnel change in the last few years that it would make your head spin. In Robert Ortiz they finally got an individual with integrity that saw the wrong being done, and when questioning things was told by Duffy to “shut the f!$k up.” Wonder why they moved him to the Health Policy Commission? Maybe because he has too much on them? C’mon SF Reporter I know you can have a field day with this!

All Too Familiar 
December 9th, 2009 at 9:05 pm
I can’t believe it took this long to get attention…..AMAZING. Nepotism at DOH has been going on for several years now, actually since Bernice Gonzales starting working there. It continues to happen because she has Duffy Rodriguez there to back her up. There is more that hasn’t been said. A thorough investigation should be conducted. So much would be discovered. That group is famous for taking extended lunch breaks, disappearing for hours at a time (no accountability what so ever), favoritism, state rules and regulations not being followed, the list goes on and on!! The truly hard working employees, who of course are not part of their group, do not have this privilege. Kaitlyn you call it “slander”? I call it fact. You say they are “good hard working employees”? I say they are a disgrace to DOH. It is all about their “click” so called “circle of trust”. It is unfortunate that so many qualified hard working people have left DOH. People are either pushed out or just get disgusted with all the dishonesty at DOH . That is their perfect opportunity to bring in friends and family. Very Pathetic!! There was a time when Department of Health was a good honest place to work. Not anymore, it has now become a Circus Act. Enough is enough already!!
10.    
Remember it is not what you know it is who you know. YUP!! One big happy family.
11.    
Duffy’s “Circle of Trust” goes way back. She has always operated this way and promoted employees that have no qualifications even before DOH. She is the worst manager in state government and is never held accountable. As for Bernice, she has no qualifications, no college education and it is amazing how she can be paid the salary she gets. Maybe she should take a demotion to a position she can do since it will help with the budget deficit. All positions hired or promoted under Duffy should be investigated.
12.    
health worker: Requests to inspect public records were filed last week, on Dec. 4. The DOH has 15 days to respond.
13.    
Alexa, don’t forget to pull public records on Valerie Paulk, Stephanie Garcia and Ivy Martinez. You will find Bernice and Duffy have given these employees or should I say buddies promotions and/or raises, some in a mater of months. That is if of course these documents haven’t being destroyed as well.
14.    
To all those whom may cocern:
I am Valerie Paulk and all the information that has been posted on all these blogs in reference to my hiring and promotions while employed with state government is truley no ones business. I will state that I am a qualified and outstanding employee who has worked with the Department for over 11 years. I have EARNED every pay increase and promotion I have received. For those that still continue to tarnish my reputation or creditability, let it be know that I will seek legal counsel against anyone who defames me in such a manner.
And by the way I am not at work using government time or resources to respond.
PS Remember when honor is insulted the only response is to defend it.
15.    
PUT A CORK IN IT. YOU ALL ARE A BUNCH OF GOSSIPING BITCHES. LIES SPUN FROM JEALOUSY. MAYBE IF YOU WOULD HAVE DONE YOUR JOB(U KNOW WHO YOU ARE) INSTEAD OF BULLSHIT-ALL DAY, YOU WOULD STILL BE EMPLOYED. NOW BY A TREADMILL AND GO TO WORK. MERRY X-MAS
16.    
Ray Ray when you say “buy a treadmill”, are you refering to the “Circle of Trust”? I agree with you, they do need one and yes they do love to gossip and do need to get to work.

Nothing but the truth 
December 10th, 2009 at 6:16 pm
Looks like another lovely creation from Angela and Karl. Get over it enjoy retirement!! You would of done it too if you could of gotten away with it
18.    
that Bernice hasn’t chimed in yet to defend her honor (like she has any). The lawyer that she probably had to hire for records tampering probably told her not to say anything. This is just years of bad Karma coming back to her. By the way, when taxpayers money is involved, promotions and hiring records become public record.

SMART ONE TO HAVE LEFT 
December 11th, 2009 at 1:57 pm
As for Ms Martinez…you know that name sure sounds familiar, I believe there had been an investigation on this person once before….how corrupt and disgusting to even know that I had worked there…VERY SAD….
20.    
Has anyone looked at the person who started this whole mess????????? It usually is the guilty ones who point the fingers. What kind of credibility do they have to point the finger? Seems to me they can’t be doing their jobs if they are so busy looking at what everyone else is doing!
In a small city like Santa Fe people are going to know people. None of the mentioned people have ever received a poor evaluation! LEt’s see if the people who filed these allegations can say the same!
21.    
how writing a letter to the Honorable Senator Sue Wilson Beffort, with as much detailed information as one knows, to request a full investigation ,can do to take things off your chest. Will the circle be unbroken? In this case maybe.
22.    
Hey Amazing – sounds like the “circle” is already a little broken up and worried. Look how defensive they are. Funny how all their comments were made during working hours. Some things NEVER change…..
23.    
Hey Concerned I agree. This sure is a mess. Don’t you think its time for the Governor to drain this swamp of a few appointees? Enjoy your furloughs folks!
24.    
Dear Yup and Amazing looks like you two are the defensive ones. I wonder if you have enough guts to post your names so we can look into your job performance reviews? If you did a little more investigating you would know that part of the deputy secretaries job is to sign off on ALL personnel actions. Sounds like you even do a poor job of trying to ruin others good reputations!
25.    
Hey Concerned- Are you threatening Yup and Amazing? If you have access to their records you must be a manager. Nice of you to confirm the hostile work environment over there at DOH.
26.    
Like I said before, you are so defensive. Remember, I am not the one who is being investigated. I didn’t have to do anything to TRY and ruin what you call “good” reputations, that was done elsewhere. So many have seen the corruption that has been going on for years now and are GLAD not DEFENSIVE that something is finally being done. This is comical, it has brought a good laugh to me and I’m sure to others……Thanks. Keep it coming!!
27.    
CONCERNED, you sure are concerned. Obviously, because you know that everything being said about the “circle” is soon to be proven true. You are telling people to post their names, why don’t you? You and your pals have not done no wrong or injustice according to you. You basically stated in your last post that Deputy Secretary Rodriguez signed off on all these questionable hires, remind me not to rob a bank with you, you’ll whistle like a bird. Let’s let the LFC, State Auditor Balderas and Senator Beffort make the call on whether this is just business as usual or if it is illegal actions which need to be rectified.
28.    
Its amazing how backstabbing people can be with their fellow state employees. Everyone has had been referred by a friend, family colleagues to positions held in state, city and private sectors. This is not new and has gone on since the beginning of time. Its just a shame that people would go off and trying to ruin peoples reputation. I would guarantee that the ones starting this malicious letter is staff that have had write ups on their records. Shame on you. You should just do your job and go home appreciate that you have a job. It sound like a letter of jealousy!!!!!
29.    
A Llorona is a Santa Fe fabled ghost witch. Please post my other two comments,
30.    
Dear Amazing,
WHOSE defensive now! I am the one with the last laugh! LOL as a matter of fact!
31.    
Sure Pal!! You are an idiot!! You are making a fool out of yourself. Go do some Christmas shopping!!
32.    
The “circle” has admitted to promotions, raises, excellent evaluations, and Duffy Rodriguez signing off on all of them. What more are can be discovered? Of course you all are going to get excellent evaluations, look who gave them to you, Bernice and Duffy, DUH!! What a joke!! Sorry guys, but nothing is probably going to come out of all this. Just another disappointment from the wonderful state we live in. It will be justified, just like many other issues that have come about. BUT, if my name was in black and white in this type of scandal or any other, it would definitely affect me. When the “circle” walks down those halls in the Runnels Bldg. or in the city of Santa Fe, which they say is so small, that alone would be an embarrassment to me and have some impact (but then again these people have no morals). They will continue to be in denial even though so many people have witnessed it with their own eyes. It is all so amusing to me and I am a gettig a kick out of it, he he … Best story that has come out in a while. I can tell the “circle of trust” is just a little on edge, shows from all their comments. Better you than me…… By the way, I will be having a Merry Christmas!!

Long time DOH employee 
December 14th, 2009 at 1:50 pm
The reporter article was slightly incorrect about Valerie Paulk she has been employed a long time at DOH even prior to the circle of trust being formed with all its players. But one characteristic she does have that was not mentioned is the fact that she will kiss butt to whomever it takes to get ahead. That is how she has gotten her promotions by pretending to be their best friend until someone with higher authority arrives then she pushes her buddy to the side and gossips and brown noses the new more powerful boss. Ask Angela Montoya the prior DOH Accounting Bureau Chief, she did the same to her to get her foot into Accounting then when Bernice arrived and Duffy arrived she joined forces with them to force Angela to retirement. And how is it that more quailified employees are working under Valerie instead of heading Accounting. If you ask me Crystal Diaz is the best qualified person to be the Accounting Supervisor, didn’t she even train Valerie. Oh and by the way Valerie you have never cared about slandering anyones name before how different it is now that its your name huh. You just let everyone know how qualified you are, what happened the reporter didn’t have spell check for you. Let me help you out, not cocern its Concern. Maybe you should have had Ivy spell check it for you lol.
34.    
Concerned — Save the bullying for work (we know who you are). The people that started this mess are those that thought the rules didn’t apply to them. So take a chill pill and get ready to take the medicine, hopfully rectally!
35.    
Hey Long Time DOH Employee well said!! Ms. Amerifraud, I mean America, true to some extent but NOT the whole familia, it is like a family reunion at DOH lol. How strange how the “circle” keeps bringing up write ups, poor evaluations, etc. on other employees??? Can’t you do any better than that to defend your honor (as you call it)? This article is about YOU, so it doesn’t really matter what is on their record, does it? The “circle” is who is being looked at. Maybe you are trying to take the focus off yourself or are you trying to justify your crookedness? Don’t bother; it is too late for that. Oh, and Paulk it is spelled “TRULY” not “TRULEY”, you should have learned that in the 2nd grade.
36.    
that no one has touched on the second half of the e-mail concerning the inappropriate transfer of Grant money. That responsibility falls under Duffy’s golden boy “Mully”, Mike Mulligan. Mr. Georgetown educated, I’m smarter than everyone. Guess what, you aren’t, because you still have grants in such a disorganized mess, that, that is why Bob Ortiz got fed up and did what he had to do and alert the Department Secretary, the LFC and anyone else who would listen. Also, what does Bernice have on you that would make one think she is the Deputy ASD Director instead of you? Must be good stuff. I think the chance of losing millions of Federal Grant money should take prescidence over Bernice’s uneducated high school click. This might be where the State Auditor’s office comes in.
37.    
RUINIBG THE REPUTATION OF A FINE PERSON LIKE DUFFY IS WRONG. WHEN DUFFY GOT TO DOH HER FIRST TASK WAS TO DRIVE OFF THOSE THAT WOULDN’T DO THINGS HER WAY. SHE THEN HIRED BERNICE GONZALES AND MIKE MULLIGAN IN POSITIONS TO HELP CARRY OUT HER AGENDA. BERNICE AND MIKE HAD WORKED FOR HER BEFORE AND SHE TRUSTED THEM TO DO HER BIDDING. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT! DUFFY IS ENTITLED TO SURROUND HERSELF WITH PEOPLE THAT WILL NOT QUESTION HER ORDERS. SO QUIT COMPLAINING, IF YOU ARE SO UNHAPPY LEAVE, AS MANY OTHERS HAVE CLAIMED TO HAVE. YOU PEOPLE DON’T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND HOW STATE GOVERNMENT WORKS!
38.    
RUINIBG?? You also need to learn how to spell. How do all you people get where you are at when you can’t EVEN spell? Oh, I forgot compliments of Duffy and Bernice. Hurt feelings? Sure sounds like it? You coming to Duffy’s defense is so touching but if you had the slightest knowledge you would stop your comments, you keep sinking further and further. You have just confessed to everything you have been accused of, haven’t you? Kind of funny though!! Don’t you sense all the mocking? So many people are laughing at your stupidity, including me…. HA HA HA. The “circle” is so disliked, funny how it took an article for so many people to show it. Even if nothing comes out of all of this, you will always be looked at in a different way because SO many people know better!!
39.    
Sick and Tired, Where was Ivy? To spell check for you!! LOL

NOT ALL DOH EMPLOYEES ARE BAD 
December 15th, 2009 at 11:30 pm
The Runnels Building is like a ghost town. Few are hard working employees are left and few are honest. RETALIATION is a strong word there and you are better off not speaking of the “circle of trust”. I am glad I am not alone and other people know what I have known for a while now. I can only hope a full investigation is done. You will have dig way back though. Believe me, so much will be uncovered, but then again so much has been covered. As a taxpayer and citizen of the State of New Mexico, I feel it is a right not a privilege.
41.    
Sick and tired – Does Duffy know what you just said?? You are not even on trial? ha ha ha, he he he, lol………..need more be said!!
42.    
Sorry Valerie, one more time. It is “let it be known” not let it me ‘know”. Gosh darn it Ivy where are you? Need help with spell check!!
43.    
YOU GUYS STILL DON’T GET IT! GOVERNMENT IS ABOUT POWER…WE HAVE IT AND YOU DON’T. DUFFY WILL BE HERE LONG AFTER THIS GOES AWAY. WE WILL THAN CRUSH YOU. NOW WHO IS LOL? LOL.
44.    
Sick and Tire -YOU are pathetic and a waste of time. I will now be getting back to my normal life with a guilt free conscious, something you and the circle don’t have. You won’t be hearing from me anymore, I’m sure you will miss me but unlike you I do have a LIFE outside of work. There is such a thing called “KARMA” and guess what, it doesn’t discriminate no matter how powerful you claim to be!! Oh and by the way, more power to you…..lol
45.    
Disgusted – Congratulations, you finally get it! Now explain it to your friends. End of story!
46.    
It is pathetic to know that people with no ethics, values or morals run the Department of Health but look what has been achieved, they have admitted to their actions plus more than they were even accused of, goes to show what being under pressure does to a person. From this day forward the “circle” will be ridiculed and will be the laugh of the town. Job well done, now this deserves an outstanding evaluation….lol
47.    
SUCK AND TIRED- THE LAST INDIVIDUAL THAT THOUGHT THE SAME WAY ABOUT POWER AS YOU DO, WAS HUNG IN DECEMBER 30TH OF 2006. hE WAS A “DIC”TATOR. END OF STORY!
48.    
To Disgusted and all the other mistreated DOH employees:
Don’t give up. You are brave people that are to be admired. I am one of the people that was cruelly swept out of DOH shortly after the Duffy crowd blew into town. I was harrassed, bullied, called names, yelled at and my reputation (after 14 years in state government) was all but destroyed. They made up charges against me, spied on me and unmercilessly rode me until I broke. Luckily I landed on my feet in a descent agency. But I was and still am damaged by what happened to me. To this day I am unable to go into the Runnels Building. I am still angry and I am still very fearfull of Duffy and her circle. You probably should be too, but if you give up, THEY WIN. I know karma will eventually rule, but how many more people will be damaged? Thank you from the victims of the circle for speaking out. I hope that its true that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. God Bless You.
49.    
Sucked and Hired–oops did I say that? I meant Sick and Tired, did you say, we will “THAN” crush you?? It is “THEN”, you fool. Now who is LOL?
50.    
How can you be admired when you won’t even be brave enough to post your names. Come on Angela who used to do income tax returns at work and spent all day dreaming over her sons father, Marlene who used to run football pools, Emily who was hired because of her mother in law oh and lets not forget the “hearts” scandal. Let us throw out that dirt!!! Hello pot I am the kettle and were black!
51.    
LOL- Your comment was too funny!!! But in my opinion, Paulk should be called “Hulk”. Bernice should be called “I hired my niece”. Ivy, has to be “Sucked and Hired”(that is so her)……
52.    
Oh yeah I do remember the “hearts” scandal, it happened right before I left DOH. It was Christine and Patricia who took the rap for it (Ivy Martinez’ best friends). BUT, that was just a small part of why they were forced to retire and resign, there was A LOT more to the story. Big investigation and Ivy told all (to save her @$$ of course), even though these people were her best friends at the time. My my, I smell a rat!! This is why Ivy still works for DOH but they don’t, wonder if they are aware of all of this? Don’t bother asking Ivy what really happened, she will lie through her teeth, check her personnel file. I believe this is why a comment was made earlier in the week about Ms. Martinez’ name being questionable once before. Thanks for the information. Very helpful!!
53.    
THIS WILL BE MY LAST POST. DUFFY WANTS THIS TO JUST GO AWAY. WE WON AND YOU LOST. PAYBACK WILL BE A BITCH! MERRY CHRISTMAS- THERE IS NO SANTA.
54.    
SUCK AND HIRED- i MEAN SICK AND TIRED, IF HATING IS YOUR PROFESSION I GOT A FULL TIME POSITION FOR YOU! iT WILL PROBABLY BE LIKE YOUR LAST POSITION, ON YOUR KNEES! LOL HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
55.    
To Sick and Tired: Maybe you and your boss, Ms. Rodriguez, should find out what the word retaliation means. Your threats are just that.
56.    
ONE LAST TIME. WE FILED GREIVANCES WITH DOH HR AGAINST THE WOMAN THAT WENT TO THE LEGISLATURE FOR RUINING OUR REPUTATIONS IN THIS BLOG. ANY GUESSES HOW THAT WILL COME OUT? THERE IS MORE THAN ONE WAY TO GET EVEN. I TOLD YOU WE WOULD CRUSH YOU. WE ARE ALL SO….GIDDY! HE HE HE HE…
57.    
Sick and Tired – Did your parents have any children that lived? LOL
58.    
Yes you are. Giddy up Duffy’s @$$!! LMFAO….
59.    
Alexa, has Department of Health complied with your records request? If and when they do, please examine these records as carefully and detailed as you can. Also, have you contacted Senator Beffort to see what her take on this is and what she plans to do? As you can see by the comments, Duffy’s wanna be thugs, with Duffy setting the example, are making, just show that the truth is hurting them. Even if nothing becomes of this story, at least people outside of the Department will know what these individuals are about, and they are the ones that have to look at themselves in the mirror every morning knowing what they have done to people to further their careers. They can be in denial as much as they wish, but ultimately even though there might not be a Santa Claus, there is GOD watching us all and nobody leaves this world without answering for their misdeeds. “Circle”, laugh now, cry later. Once again Reporter thank you for bringing this story to light. Alexa, have a Happy Holiday.
60.    
The mood at the Runnels Bldg since the rumors of the grievances can best be described as intimidating, The halls are empty and people only talk behind close doors or not at all. We had craft fair yesterday that was poorly attended. Now I know what it was like to be Jewish in Nazi Germany!
61.    
WOW- Thanks for shutting up Such a Bad Hire, I mean Sick and Tired. LOL
62.    
how the “Circle”,and boy are they round, think they won a victory by filing grievances against people that brought out their little secrets. Bernice, tell everyone about the time you lost your part time job at Bed, Bath & Beyond for stealing bubble bath and soap, now that’s what you call funny. You make damn good money, but according to NM courts.com can’t hold on to a house (forclosed on twice) because you earn your money by being a dirty player at DOH. You’ll probably find a lump of coal or a bar of soap in your stocking. Happy Holidays!!

Amazing- Now that is amazing! If I were a crook and working at ASD/DOH, how would I steal? I know! I would hire family and friends and give them jobs in General Accounting, Contracts, Procurement and the programs. I would create fake procuremets and then submit fraudulent invoices for payments from other family and friends. Does any of this scenario sound familiar? Hello!!! The circle of trust is not a good thing for the taxpayers.

That’s what they call leaving the Fox in charge of the hen house.

TO ALL BAD COMMENTS 
December 23rd, 2009 at 7:30 pm
TO ALL OF YOU THAT HAVE HAD COMMENTS ON THIS BLOG YOU ALL NEED TO GROW UP NOW IT’S TIME TO GET TO WORK AND QUIT PICKING ON BERNICE. IT’S OBVIOUS THAT YOU DON’T LIKE HER NOT SURE WHY BUT THIS NEEDS TO STOP. I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT SUE WILSON BEFFORT WOULD BELIEVE ALL THIS CHILDLESS COMMENTS IT’S OBVIOUS THAT “CERTAIN” PEOPLE DON’T LIKE BERNICE FOR SOME REASON. BUT WHEN YOU START BRINGING IN HER OWN PERSONAL LIFE INTO THIS IT’S NOBODY’S BUSINESS WHAT SHE DOES ON HER OWN TIME IS HER OWN BUSINESS. BERNICE HAS A GOOD HEART THOSE OF YOU THAT DON’T THINK SO YOU OBVIOUSLY NEVER GOT TO KNOW HER AS A “PERSON”. I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT THE LIMP LADY WHO STARTED ALL OF THIS WITH THE HELP OF OTHERS, WHICH WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE. THIS IS GETTING WAY OUT OF CONTROL AND IT WOULD BE A WASTE OF STATE TAX DOLLARS TO DO ANYKIND OF INVESTIGATING BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY YOU ALL ARE JEALOUS OF BERNICE BECAUSE YOU HAVE ALL PROVED IT ON THESE COMMENTS. SO ALL I SAY TO YOU IS GET A LIFE, GO TO CHURCH AND PRAY FOR YOURSELF BECAUSE GOD IS WATCHING EVERY BAD THING YOU DO TO OTHERS. MY…. GOD WE SHOULD BE CELEBRATING THE BIRTH OF JESUS NOT ACTING LIKE CHILDREN GOD WANTS US TO LOVE EACH OTHER NOT HATE EACH OTHER. YOU KNOW IT’S THE TRUTH THAT YOUR OWN RACE WILL STAB YOU IN THE BACK. LET’S JUST ALL BE HAPPY THAT WE HAVE A JOB AND THAT WE HAVE A ROOF OVER OUR HEAD AND FOOD ON THE TABLE TO FEED OUR FAMILIES.
MAY GOD PRAY FOR THE PERSON’S WHO STARTED THIS…. SHE AND HE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES.

Too bad we can’t all work like Bernice and her crew which is to walk from office to office all day and talk smack about everyone who isn’t in the “not so little” circle. Now that is a waste of taxpayers money! If you have an issue with Senator Sue Wilson Beffort you should have the guts, as you are fond of saying, and call her up to express your feelings. Her personal and work numbers are listed on the legislative web site. I’m sure Senator Wilson is intelligent and professional enough to know when an injustice needs to be looked into. I’m sure you don’t like people making fun of you girls being so fat, so you should show a little respect for the lady with the handicap and not call her the “limp” lady. You’re right about Bernice’s personal life, if she can’t keep a man, or a house and she has sticky fingers, that is her business as long as she keeps it out of the Department of Health. How do you know that it is a guy and a girl who started posting on this blog about Bernice? She has HURT so many people in the past and present that her list of suspected bloggers could be a large number of people. She better hope that a Democratic wins for Governor as Duffy will not be there for her for the rest of her career to defend her wrong doings. She has burnt so many bridges that , hey you never know, one of the bloggers could be her next boss. I’m glad to see that you have discovered God during the holiday season. How about living by His rules the other 364 days of the year. You too must remember he is watching YOUR every move. You are right about our own raza looking out for themselves, example: Bernice. You’re right, let this issue drift away, for some reason a little of it may have sunk into the “Circles” head. Not sure if for good, but, at least for a little while. The good part about a New Year is that we can start out fresh with a new attitude. Think you can do the same “circle”?
67.    
Valerie – Leave God out of this. Osama Bin Laden uses his name to do his evil deeds every day. Duffy’s retaliations are al Queda like tactics and we are tired of it in the Runnels Bldg. I want to help you understand the difference between right and wrong, Someone steals a candy at the grocery store. Another person sees it and reports it. Who is at fault? You believe it is the person that reports it and the rest of us think it is the person that stole the candy. Does that help any? Were you celebrating the birth of Jesus when you filed grievance for Duffy against the person that reported the wrong doing to the Legislature?
68.    
Bernice helps people gain learning experince and that’s what we all need on OUR resumes, according to government hiring policy. No one can ” Exactly” apply for any state job without experience, Regardless of family or friends relatively and nobody can proove friend neither the less family, otherwise it all gossip. Unless someone can find someone to do blood tests; I doubt the state will pay for that. Thank you, for the rest of your opinions. Thats what helped me speak out on this worthless blog. Sorry it’s late, I party too, like ther Governor but yes you may lauph and who will report to work on monday? I’ll bet all of the “Circle of Trust.” Good job all of you in that particular target, you’ve all done very well…
69.    
Revision: ( And I didn’t need Ivy Martinez to help, or Word. ) Bernice helps people gain learning experience and that’s what WE all need on OUR resumes, according to government hiring policy. No one can ” Exactly” apply for any state job without experience, Regardless of family or friends relatively and nobody can proove friend neither the less family. Unless proved, it’s all just gossip. Unless someone can find someone to do blood tests to determine such alligations as family but I doubt the state will pay for that and I doubt all you liars could all put in for some kind of fund. Thank you for the rest of your opinions. That’s what helped me speak out on this worthless blog after so much jibberish. Sorry it’s late, I party too, like ther Governor and yes you may lauph but who will report to work on monday? I’ll bet all of the “Circle of Trust.” Good job all of you in that particular target, you’ve all done very well…
70.    
Hey Richard, LOL, ther governor… I meant the Governor. Sorry, I can’t reeeed this dumb junk blog anymorrrrrre……….
71.    
Scared, no need to be afraid of these bullies. When confronted face to face they are the fastest to not look you in the eyes when talking to you. Right Bernice. Looks like she’s about to pee in her pants the way she squirms back and forth when she is denying something, which she’ll always do. They are BIG, but they are not that BAD.
72.    
TO All BAD- Does Duffy know you wrote in? You seem “concerned” that they may investigate Bernice. You also seem “sick and tired” of people making “bad comments” about Bernice. And is it okay for the Circle to dump on thier own race everyday but La Raza needs to support Bernice? Don’t worry as corrupt as DOH has become, the head appointee has already signed the memo Duffy prepared stating that the matter was thoroughly investigated and all is well. And your, “we know who you are threats” are not very Christian like. But I guess Christmas is over and the Circle will be back to the same games. You need to take Amazing’s advice!
73.    
Sticky fingers has a gambling problem too. I thought everybody knew about that! And shame on you “BAD COMMENTS” for making fun of the handicapped. DOH is a SICK, SICK place that seems to be getting SICKER by the day. Glad I’m out of there. I pray for my friends that still work in the DEPARTMENT OF HELL.
74.    
TO ALL,HE, HE, HE..WAIT TIL YOU SEE WHO WE GET NEXT. HE, HE, HE…REMEMBER YOU WERE WARNED! HE, HE, HE….NOW LOOK WHO IS LOL.
75.    
To Regular Hire By Bernice,
Your posts are a credit to what the Circle represents to us all. You also admit that Bernice hires people without experience to give them experience. I wonder how the 20-30 people that applied for those jobs with experience feel about that? You should never drink and type!
76.    
Reading all 75 comments was exhausting. There are two sides to every story. There are those being oppressed by a horrific management only state government would tolerate and then there is this Duffy person and her Circle of Trust. The Circle’s answer to dissent is you should be glad you have a job and a roof over your head and keep quiet about the corruption. In the 40s other government employees worked at two other government facilities called Auschwitz and Treblinka and they gassed Jews and they also kept quiet and were content to have jobs and roofs over their heads. The oppressed should continue to speak up and care, I lost relatives at Treblinka, if only the worker would have spoken up.

From Sick and Tired to Disgusted 
December 31st, 2009 at 1:27 pm
First of all, my last post was not a credit, it was an honest opinion you dummy and second of all I never admitted Bernice hired me without experience, I said she helps people gaing new learning experience. Haven’t you ever learned something new in a job without having to go to school for 2 years? If not, you must have had some lousy employers. Not everbody that works with the state has to be a doctor to get a regular good paying job. Oh and I didn’t type this comment up on work time, I used my break! LOL…
78.    
From Sick and Tired to Disgusted 
December 31st, 2009 at 1:34 pm
I typed gaing instead of gain. BIG DEAL! I know one of you idiots is bound to bring anything like that up on this useless, worthless blog.
79.    
Hey Susan Beffort, I love that look. Stay to real politic meanings that matter most…
80.    
We all drink and type sometimes…
81.    
I love your look Bernice, especially where your makeup ends around your neckline and your skin becomes two-tone like, reminds me of Michael Jackson.
82.    
To Regular Hire by Bernice,
Once again you are a credit to the Circle! If you are a “Regular Hire by Bernice Gonzales,” does that make the rest of the Circle Irregular Hires by Bernice Gonzales? I am sure you have gained some valuable experience working “under” Bernice. Not sure that type of experience is good for much unless your name is Hoover or Dyson. Please don’t knock schooling if the Circle had more than mail order GED’s they could spell and write. Glad to hear you were sober at work when you typed your last post!
83.    
Observer: Understood.
84.    
HE, HE, HE, WE ARE ALL GIDDY TODAY. YESTERDAY THEY ESCORTED THE WOMAN WITH 5 GREIVANCES OUT OF THE RUNNELS BLDG. HE, HE, HE.. I TOLD YOU THERE WAS A SURPRISE ON ITS WAY! HE, HE, HE. NOW YOU ALL UNDERSTAND HOW STATE GOVERNMENT WORKS? HE. HE. HE. HE…..HA!
85.    
Well, this unfortunately appears to be an open and shut case of the bad girls (Circle) winning, which isn’t suprising with the state of the State under this administration. The lady that had the courage to speak out against these unfair and crooked hiring practices sent out an e-mail at the beginning of the week stating that it had been nice to work at DOH, but that she was leaving. No one seems to know if she went to another State Agency, quit, or was placed on administrative leave, I’m sure the “Circle” will take credit for this. In the meantime, the “Circle of Trust” walks around cocky like they own the building. The funny part is they don’t realize that their souls are literally on the line. In a way, I actually have a little pity for them. You never know, a major lawsuit may be in the works for both them and the Department. I guess we’ll all stay tuned. Just once in this corrupt Richardson/Denish administration it would be nice to see justice prevail and the good guy/gal win against the crooked “Circle” people of the world. If not in this life, maybe the next?
86.    
Has anyone seen Diane Moore in the Runnels Bldg? Are the rumors true?
87.    
Update – A fellow worker called from the Colgate Bldg called me, Diane was transferred there against her will. She now is working for DDS Division and they are looking for work for her. She was given no reason for the transfer. I guess retaliation isn’t an official reason.
88.    
Do any of the people in the Circle have any dignity or consciences? SICK AND TIRED you must be the Deputy Secretary’s soul mate. And that Deputy Secretary Duffy Rodriguez, what a crook! One thing is clear Secretary Vigil’s recently departed father would be ashamed of how his son is handling this whole situation! This is blatant retaliation.
89.    
This act of retaliation doesn’t speak well for Governor Richardson’s proposed Ethics and Whistleblower legislation if he is incapable of controlling his own appointees. As the Chief Executive, he certainly could step in and protect her without waiting for the legislation to be passed.
90.    
The circle is nervous. They hide in each other’s offices and whisper threats. They might be peeing in their trash cans because they don’t hang out by the bathrooms much any more. They are deciding what parts of an information request to give out and what not to. They are talking about inquiries and lawsuits. They are talking about grievances and transfers. They plan to “CRUSH” certain people. They read the blog.

“You are defined by your sense of honor….and redeemed by your actions” There is no honor and redemption at DOH. Only, blah?
93.    
The “Circle” would be best off keeping quiet and leaving things be for the moment. When all is said and done, all the threats they have made here against good honest workers will be used against them in a court of law, then we will see who is quote “giddy”, what a stupid sounding word. Face it “Circle”, you are guilty of mistreating people, and are like Pontious Pilate when he had Jesus crucified trying to wipe your hands of the whole thing. Face it, that duck don’t fly fools!! Once we all commit a wrong action it can never be taken back. In time, the truth will be known.

Check out today’s Santa Fe Reporter. DOH is one sick place. Sen Sue Beffort says, “It’s what you don’t want to think government was like.”

Former state employee 
January 13th, 2010 at 12:38 pm
Every one needs to get over this situation already it is nothing but a bounch of child like adults going back and forth. Yes the way they are going about doing things are wrong but if you were in there shoes you would help a family member or a friend out. It don’t matter what department you work with this kind of stuff happens from the mailroom all the way up to the secretarys office. I’m sure the circle is not the only people doing this in DOH. Get Over It!
96.    
There you go again, “Sick and Tired”, oops, I mean “Former State Employee”, your spelling and grammer say it all. By defending the “Circle”, who are guilty of harassing a lady, Ms. Moore, that is truly passionate abour her job and actually believes that the Department of Health is making a difference in the lives of New Mexico citizens, you are showing what a disgrace YOU are. If Bernice and her gang, which is the way they portray themselves, had any belief that they haven’t done any wrong, they would have had the courage, like Ms. Moore, to comment in the article. Makes the average reader ask, “what are they hiding?” Good timing on the Reporter’s behalf as all the Legislator’s will be in town by tuesday, and when seeing a copy of the Reporter will ask themselves, “what the hell is going on at DOH?” There are some good comments going on at the cover story of DOH. To borrow one, “If I had a dollar for everytime Duffy called someone fucking ignorant, I could pay off the deficit in California.” so true, so true. “Circle” your names are mud at DFA, and we all know that they are the hub of all financial jobs for the State. The sad news is that DOH is stuck with these rejects until they REALLY screw up, hopefully sooner than later.
97.    
Every time the Circle posts they insert their foot in their mouth. It is now amusing!
98.    
It’s funny how Bob wants to so called blow the whistle on everyone but why has he not said anything about the fact that the only reason he was hired was cause of his wife Edna who also works at the department. Oh yea and so does his daughter in law. And by the way he was forced out of LANL. Let’s not talk about how much time he spent on his daughters child support case while at work about 90% percent; not to metion that he was using his employees to help him with it.
99.    
Confused, Since you claim to know so much, please remind us who was the hiring official when Bob Ortiz was hired?
100.             
Observer: you jackass that’s my point, when it was for his convenience and when it was a benefit to him he was ok with it. You can have it both ways! And how many people know tha Ms. Mooore had a law suit against Corrections Dept. and this is her second time being moved while at the DOH. Seems to me that she has a problem getting along with people; don’t let her fool you!
101.             
Confused, Has someone been in Ms Moore’s personnel file? That would probably make you management. Do you really want to make Ms Moore’s lawyer angrier by continuing to retaliate? Every time the Circle posts they insert their foot in their mouth.
102.             
To Observer – You are wasting your time debating Mike Mulligan. That’s right Mike! You are never wrong; you like to argue and are fond of calling people jackasses. Oh, and let me add liar to the list. Everyone hates you!
103.             
We we all know that you don’t have to be part of mangement to know stuff, people talk as you can see. What’s funny is that you have adults going back and forth about shit they know nothing about and yet the person who they should be focusing on is sitting back laughing. You talk about a circle, the only person in the circle is-Bernice. She’s the one laughing at everyone, she got what she wanted. Suckers!!!
104.             
Late to report, We are All Free..Bernice, I can’t beleive how much shit you put up with, Yes, it’s ok okay for bad words in a blog, same as for petitions on the streets with governmental right issues. IT is the same and the majority of alot of people beleive in you and your practices of good employment. There is no point in worrying about who goes where or what happens to who except where you are and maybe where you might want to take yourself further, same as all include. This blog is a credit to show that people talked about here are around still at DOH and are doing what is told to their duties, not by little people, but by big people that know official standards. You all bad talkers should volunteer with community work and help the world, dont hurt any government situaiton.
105.             
how Bernice forgets that when JoAnn was making her life difficult she spent a whole week going to DFA trying to get in their good graces so they would take her back. Guess what, right when she would leave DFA they would laugh and joke about her. It was probably the same thing for her in high school too. She stuck it out at Health, JoAnn retired and she was able to stick the knife in everyone’s back, via Duffy, to move up. Funny part is, that a few years later the ugly truth has reared it’s head and thanks to the Reporter, everyone in State Government knows what Big Bad Bernice is all about. So all in all the laugh is on Her. You must have one miserable personal existance to be such a hateful, deceiving, mean person. Do you even like yourself?
106.

113.             
how quick Bob Ortiz is back in the Runnels Building. Just a matter of a few months before the “Circle jerks” best friend Ms. Dianne Moore is back. With the whistle blower act most likely getting passed soon, it will be interesting to see if Bernice and company win their grievances. A new era in State Government is on the horizon and the “circle” people of the world will not always get their way. Imagine, only ten more months and the mean, hateful Duffy will be out of DOH and wrecking havoc and instilling pain and hurt somewhere else. If Duffy and the other Exempt morons think that their “Denish” is a shoe in, think again, as she faces a very uphill battle and just might lose. Heck, that would mean the Exempt a holes would actually have to find real jobs in 2011. That should provide lots of shits and giggles. By the way, Senator Beffort did bring up DOH when introducing a bill about a true hiring freeze. Guess this means this issue isn’t a dead dog yet. Good job Senator.
114.             
TO amazing, THAT SMILE WILL SOON BE OFF FROM YOUR FACE. DUFFY WILL SOON HAVE BOB ORTIZ KICKED OUT OF RUNNELS. THE WHISTLEBLOWER BILL IS JUST CRAP ON PAPER AND THE PARTTIME POLITICIANS WILL BE GONE BACK HOME SOON. LOL!
115.             
I don’t think Duffy is that stupid to leave herself open to a potential lawsuit for retaliation. Glad to see that the legislature is finally looking at bills that protect those that are actually looking out for the taxpayers money. By the way, it is sad, but a true example of higher management at DOH spending their time sending out stupid e-mails to all their little click to pass the time away, instead of working, huh Bernice. I especially found the one with the little baby with the sad face saying “can’t wait til summer”, funny. Don’t you have numerous bureaus to supervise? I noticed that all the circle was on there, except for Duffy. How come? LOL

February 11th, 2010 at 9:35 pm
Karma. That’s all that is left. 1st amendment @ the workplace? gone. Ethics? non-existant. Transparency? a joke. Accountability to taxpayers? As SPO exhibited only recently….evidently not capable. The state of affairs at DOH is shameful and taxpayers (all of us) have reason to be angy and SHOULD demand transparency & information. The good guy? Beffort. The bad guy? DOH mgmt-for being truly clueless & not caring.
117.             
Now now Sick and Tired, the whistleblower act passed both chambers of the legislature and the Governor is soon to sign it. Guess this means the “Circle’s” days of harassing people and playing favoritism games could soon be over. Guess that means the good guys, Ortiz and Moore have to be left alone by you evil things. By the way your favorite Senator, Sue Wilson Beffort sponsered the bill. Way to go Sue!!
118.             
Can you believe it, Duffy Rodriguez is actually being considered for Kathleen Miller’s job as the Secretary of DFA. If that happens do you think any of the “Circle of Trust” will be going along for the ride? NOT, she wants nothing to do with this scum and they will be left behind to face those that they have continually screwed over at DOH. What is the “Circle” going to do without “mommy” to take good care of them, Work, ha ha that’s funny. Duffy’s loyalty is to no one but herself as she is one ugly human being much like her boss “Fat Bill”. Harsh lesson “Circle”.
119.             
You people truely need a life. If you all only posted your real name, we would see the complainers, are the people who do minimun work while in their state protected jobs, and scream lawsuits and union to their supervisors when they dont get their way.. Like Bob Ortiz and Diane Moore.By the way Mrs. Moore, What other state agencies do you have lawsuits filed againt or pending against. That is public information as well. You people think that your entitled to jobs in state government because you have been there so long. I’m sure Duffy will take hard workers with her to DFA, if what you say is true health worker. She recruits people she know can do the job. That is one of the reasons she was a CFO of the year. Because she gets the job done. Now quit useing your state issued computers to post on the internet during work hours your opinion.You were hired at DOH to do a job, now make sure you do it, and let a dead horse die. Also SHAME on SF reorter. I wasmt sure before, but now I’m positive that your journalism is one sided bunk, just like KRQE’s Larry Barker.
Steve
120.             
Now Now Fat Boy, didn’t you and your Sponge Bob Square Pants wife Marlena work for Duffy at Health. I recall the Old lady moving up from Accounting to Grants pretty fast, could it have been Duffy? Good strategy as the wife is at DFA, right? You Riggs’ play the political card right and it has served you well. SF Reporter and Mr. Barker aren’t too well liked because they have the courage to tell the truth! It will be funny when the Republicans take the Governor’s seat and you have to work for a living. Oh well I guess all good things must end.
121.             
By the way, Duffy’s CFO of the year was a very solicited award which wasn’t a merit award. The kiss asses lobbied for her and she got it. Face it, Duffy sucks!!

Dorothy Rodriguez: “Fxxking Idiot of the Year”!
123.             
Alexa, if you are reading this, keep on top of it. I haven’t heard more on Duffy replacing Katherine “on the boat” Miller . Could it be that Duffy is setting her skinny a** up for a classified position at DFA like the rest of the flunkies Barker reported on? With this administration it would not suprise me. I saw her today, her office is looking emptier each day that goes by, and to quote the hefers from the “Circle” she looks absolutely “Giddy”, pathetic if that is the case.
124.             
Thanks, health worker. I’m still on it.
125.             
Steve Riggs, get your facts straight. According to NM Courts, Ms Moore has never filed a lawsuit. You and Mike need to lookup the word” libel”! You stated Duffy will take hard workers with her to DFA. There are SPO rules for hiring classified positions. Oh that is right, your Daddy got you and your Sponge Bob and Square Pants wife jobs with Duffy in ASD sans the rules.
126.             
Bernice, have you sent Mr. Rigg’s a thank you card yet. After all, he is taking away the attention from you and your big purple body, especially that you and your hiring practices are the focus of this article.
127.             
Any word on Duffygate?
128.             
Latest on Duffygate is that we are all just waiting for the Old Bag of Bones to leave. Some say it will be very soon. One of the heads of her financial departments is headed to another agency. Question is, when Duffy leaves, which of the “Circle” jerks will be scrambling to Workforce Solutions in Albuquerque, since their hero will be gone and they will have to face those whom they have hurt and messed with. They are such cowards they will probably crawl under a rock, hopefully!!

This just in:
Adelina Roybal promoted to acting Financial Accounting Bureau Chief;
Bernice Gonzales exiled to the mailroom to work for Tim Herrera

Ding Dong the Wicked Witch is gone. Duffy’s last day with Health was Friday. Who’s “giddy” now circle jerks? Seems like she left the State to go and start here own company or something of the sorts. Wonder if this company won’t be contracted by Health to run their finances? With this corrupt administration one never knows. Oh well, only 7 more months to go until the Republicans win the Governor’s seat back and all the Exempt losers are run out of town. “Circle of Trust”, two words for you, “Suck It.” Every dog has it’s day!
132.             
This sounds too good to be true!
133.             
So now, what’s the status of Mike Mulligan , Jim Green, Bernice Gonzales and the infamous Dan Jacobs/Erlinda Roybal tryst? Are they still lurking in the bowels of the Runnels Building? If so, what may be needed is an industrial strength pest control bug bomb, although even that won’t get their stench out of the carpets anytime soon.
134.             
What happened Sick and Tired, I thought you said Duffy would kick Mr. Ortiz to the curb and that the whistleblower act was crap. As far as I know he lives in the halls of the Runnels Building. Ms. Moore is alive and well at DDSD and Duffy’s just a bad memory. Seems to me that the only ones left to kick to the curb is the “Circle of Trust”. Might not happen at Health, but it will happen sometime.
135.             
Below are some of Secretary Vigil’s guiding principles:
Integrity that Builds Trust
Open and Respectful Communications
Teamwork that Values Individuals
Pride in Leadership.
It is obvious to the readers of this blog and the Jan 13 DOH article in the Santa Fe Reporter that Secretary Vigil gives lip service to his own guiding principles. In Secretary Vigil’s e-mail today he stated that each of our goals should be to leave DOH in better shape than when we started. I believe that Secretary Vigil’s only hope to accomplish this goal is by resigning. DOH and the State would be far better off without his poor judgement, self-serving mediocre leadership and his OBSCENE salary. The taxpayers and the employees at DOH deserve more than hollow guiding principles by someone who is only capable of malfeasance.

136.             
Alfredo Vigil’s email was a joke! Duffy was not a hero, she was a corrupt bully who was feared by all in the agency. I was surprised that Mike Mulligan is her replacement. Mike has been telling everyone that the senior financial team was all leaving so the DOH would fail. Mully’s level integrity has no equal except for Bernard Madolf. He also has serious anger management issues. We should all be very afraid.
137.             
Hey Alfredo loved the email. It was a joke, right? Got any nice words for Hitler and Stalin too?
Did you smoke some of that medical marijuana before your wrote the email? Oh I forgot, you screwed that program up too.
What a slap in the face to all the decent people you allowed to be victimized by the 4th Reich (the circle of crap). We all hope that the reign of terror is over, but what do you care. You should check out http://www.Monster.com.

In my 20 plus years with the Department I’ve worked under several administrations.  Never have I experienced the corruption and the blatant disregard for those we are here to serve as under the current administration.  Hard working professionals have lost the trust and respest of our legislators under the current administration.  Taxpayer dollars are diverted from providing direct patient care to pay-to-play service contracts.  Intimidation is the weapon of choice to deal with those that question unethical practices.
I have always voted for a Democrat for governor, this fall I intend to vote Republican.  Denish is more of the same business as usual.

One would think that people would learn from what happened to Duffy, but Health is still the same old bullshit. Even though we are in a hiring freeze, we can still take positions from one section and give them to one we like better. That is O.K. because if you give someone enough rope they will eventually hang themselves.

I want to say I am sorry to all those I have hurt. Especially, Diane Moore. We all got carried away with working for Duffy Rodriguez and thought we could do no wrong. Duffy was forced to go and we now work for Mike Mulligan. Not a day goes by that Mike isn’t threatening to write one of us up. I guess you could say we got what we had coming to us. Someone needs to ask the question why the big blonde in accounting climbs out of Mike’s car late in the afternoon with messed up hair? Mike has no integrity.

The big blonde in accounting who climbs out of Mike’s car late in the afternoon with messed up hair is Vicki Sanchez.

This is “Special!” I guess we now know why Mike has been palming the condoms in the STD baskets down here at PHD. Everyone pretended not to notice. We thought they were for home consumption (or is that consummation?). Now we know their purpose was work related. On the bright side Mike is practicing safe sex. On the dark side he is practicing it with his employee. Rules don’t apply to appointees?

Mike thinks he is a Ladies’ Man. He kept hitting on a co-worker. She finally had to remind him she knew he was married to get him to leave her alone.

    Oh wow! I nearly forgot about all of those comments. Still the same "Usual Suspects," still in play. I would have thought we would have chased some of these people off. Shows you how how the least qualified hyenas are the ones with the most survival skills. Anyone more qualified or skilled than them are viewed as a threat and they "take care of them."

    It's sad to see thet "The Circle of Trash, I mean Trust" is still alive and well and still telling Torres who to like and dislike. We got an HR manager/nanny picking up the kids, a Purchasing/Accounting Manager going to the movies and dinner with her, and an ASD/purchasing agent still being a follower and not questioning whether things that are being done are right or wrong, oops, you have to have morals first. When the Martinez administration started we thought things would change, obviously they didn't. Still Here said it right, these fools have survival skills. Johnathan Publix, I wish I knew who you were so I could give you a big high five. I'm sure we pass each others all the time. Keep up the good fight my Brother or sista!!

      I didn't know where to put this but after reading Health Worker's comment this seems to be a good place.

      THANK YOU!

      Johnathan is quickly becoming a folk hero in the halls of the Runnels building. His work has been a big uplift in recent days. Be careful Johnathan. You can count that Torres and her crew want to find you. Love the fact you post from the Runnels building on twitter and on the website. It looks like it has inspired others to do the same. This format is great. Keep fighting!

  3. Time for a new begining1/25/12, 1:54 PM

    Health Worker is right! When Torres goes the island of misfit toys need to go with her. Whenever a new administration comes in it becomes Lord of the Flies all over again in order to curry favor. The Conch has been smashed and now the bullies are riding roughshod all over the place. Sadly enough, these are the people that are the least qualified and add little to no value to DOH. We need to name names! Without identifying them they will stay and nothing will be solved. At least Alfredo kept them from destroying the place but now they have free reign.

    The Secretary for Homeland Defense is leaving, why not move Torres to that position? She can take her goon squad (Ivy, Bernice, Teresa and Jim) with her. They can provide security for the EOC and can monitor the employees' email, arrival/departure times and the illegal aliens/terrorists in NM. A better fit for all. Please act on this quickly before they start waterboarding at DOH.

    1. Waterboarding would be a welcome escape from the mental abuse and hostility that we suffer.

    2. Bernice and Ivy will never leave this joint they act like they own the Department they try to scare us by knowing the Secretary ... that doesn't scare any of us maybe you need to try something else because this ain't working lady. Also Secretary you better be careful with Ms.B she tells us way to many of your personal stories during the lunch hour I would be careful what you tell her. How do you think we get alot of the stories and then it spreads like weeds. Secretary you have had lunch with them and you know how they talk so think about it they are not your friend the way you think they are she brown noises every secretary, asd director, that comes in with the new administration I can go on and on but you will find out in time that you can't trust the lady this is how she works to survive in the work place. And Ms. I she's like a little puppy give her a doggy bone and she will do what ever trick you want ask her master Ms.B.
