Editorial Reviews

Review

''Dave Cargo was a visionary governor. He was one of the first New Mexico governors to see the value of the film and television industry to our state's economy. He continues to be a colorful New Mexican and has a strong place in New Mexico's folklore.'' --New Mexico Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish

''David Cargo gave New Mexicans a say about those things that affect them. Through his leadership and his collaboration with the 'Loyal Opposition' in the New Mexico Legislature, Dave accomplished much for the unrepresented citizenry. The establishment of 'one person-one vote' districting resulted in diverse representation of the legislative body. This significant action later permeated County, Municipal and School District levels of government. In addition, State parks and libraries will always provide New Mexicans with fond memories of (not so) Lonesome Dave.'' --Roberto Mondragon

You think history is boring? Politics is only for the rich? Get acquainted with David F. Cargo, a young man from Michigan who became Governor of New Mexico without campaign funds in the 1960s. "Lonesome Dave" details a political system unchanged for a hundred years, and the hard work it took to transform it. Factual, funny, and informative, you'll love Dave's spunk, his honesty.

I found this book to be quite interesting from the perspective of one who lived through these times and worked for the N.M. State Police during Governor Cargo's tenure.

Format: Hardcover
I found this book VERY GOOD and INTERESTING.
I knew David Cargo from Portland Oregon in the late 70's and then moved to New Mexico shortly after David Cargo himself moved back himself.
I grew up in a political family myself in Indiana and found that many of the things that he stated were as I remember in my home State- only our 5% contribution to the 'party' was automatically taken out of our pay not collected from us on pay day in person.... But yes having our road (or even driveway) paved depending who was in power all happened as he said..
To get this personal and public background on a person whom I knew and respect was very good and insightful, and the information within the State was very good and useful,,, many of the people were still there in the 80's when I moved there.
A great book.
