SALES REPORT

A Message from Executive Director
Randy Randall

Randy Randall, Executive Director


Sometimes we do not realize how lucky we areǃ Santa Fe is a highly recognized tourism destination, loaded with the authentic qualities today’s visitor is seeking including our own look when it comes to architecture, our own style of dress, our own cuisine and the wondrous smell of piñon when the night chill comes to our climate. But beyond that, our Governing Body gives us almost the full latitude of spending the lodger’s tax dollars our hotels and short term rentals generate to ensure we are able to properly market and promote our destination. In a recent article in the Arizona Republic, the concerns of other destinations are outlined in detail. Of 8 separate destinations in the greater Phoenix market, several receive less than 50% collected for promotion of the destination. In our own state, I frequently hear of misuse of lodger’s tax by governmental entities or of funds being diverted for questionable tourism facility suppot – a great example being the use of lodger’s tax to acquire land as a potential landing space for balloons during the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.

Santa Fe has plenty of public needs that are underfunded, however our Governing Body has demonstrated an understanding that Tourism growth cannot be taken for granted. It realizes that the community benefit from tourism comes through all the direct and indirect GRT that is generated, the jobs that are sustained and the cultural and quality of life benefits that are generated beyond the level of most communities our size. We need to appreciate this quality and ensure it continues as we hear from the candidates vying for a seat at the leadership table.
