N.M. governor orders staff to end use of private email for work matters

From Santa Fe New Mexican:

After a week of taking heat following the disclosure that Gov. Susana Martinez and top officials in her administration used personal emails to conduct state business, on Monday she ordered all state employees in agencies under her authority to use official state email for state business.


The governor noted her order came following a "productive" meeting Saturday with the board of the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government. That organization was highly critical last week of government officials conducting government business using personal emails and for appearing to do "special favors for special people."
