SANTA FE COUNTY, N.M. — Santa Fe County voters displayed a generous mood in Tuesday's election results, decisively approving three bond issue proposals worth a cumulative $35 million. Rural county residents also approved a quarter-cent gross receipts tax increase to fund capital firefighting needs.

"I am particularly pleased because a lot of that bond is going to be for services that go directly back to the community, that affect the larger community," County Commissioner Virginia Vigil said.
