There is no precise way to explain the energetic life of New Mexico Governor David Cargo-attorney to the downtrodden, as well as the rich and famous; a changer of legislative reapportionment, and at the same time inventing the first Governor's State Film Commission in the United States. He was a dedicated promoter of many films shooting and spending fortunes in our state. Then the true miracle happened: a Republican became beloved by the liberal Democrats of Hollywood. It had never happened before and mostly likely never will again. He became personal friends with those behind the camera as well as the stars facing it, and consequently had acting parts in twelve of those films. And now, while writing his priceless historical memoir, he has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to build, and/or maintain twelve libraries in such isolated New Mexico villages and towns as Mora, Anton Chico, Villanueva and Corona. This is an unsurpassed heritage to leave for the mental and spiritual growth of the youth of New Mexico. Viva, Lonesome Dave
