April 13, 2018 – Governor Martinez recently appointed Michael Brasher to serve on the UNM Board of Regents. Brasher replaces Alex Romero, who stepped down after less than a year on the board. Brasher also currently serves on the State Board of Finance. Jessica Dyer from the Albuquerque Journal reported this week that there are questions about whether serving on both boards will create conflicts of interest. Gene Grant and this week’s Line panelists discuss this story and how to avoid conflicts of interest in public life.
