Albuquerque, NM – Sometimes, when life's challenges weigh heavy on our shoulders, it's hard to keep from getting caught up with worry and anxiety. Commentator Carmela Starace shares how she found much needed guidance in an unlikely place.

Starace is a fiction writer and advocate for low income New Mexicans. She lives in Albuquerque.


Albuquerque, NM – The state Public Regulation Commission is holding meetings this week in Albuquerque to hear from consumers on Public Service Company of New Mexico's most recent rate hike request.

Commentator Carmela Starace is a lawyer with Prosperity Works. The non-profit organization advocates for low income New Mexicans and has filed a motion in opposition to PNM's rate request.

PNM says the rate hike is needed to offset capital improvements and to pay for future investments.
