If there were medals given out for perseverance I'm convinced that I would, at least, qualify for an honorary mention.
So I took some time this afternoon to go through ALL of the e-mails between myself and Robert Huckins, and government officials, since I hired him to build a home and horse barn.
I shouldn't HAVE to display this type of tenacity - this dogmatic determination to GET justice.
Having watched what has happened in THIS case I cannot imagine how the parents of a child rape victim must feel when a judge releases a dangerous person back onto the street to hurt another person.
I cannot imagine how solid, faithful, law enforcement officers must feel when, after untold hours of investigations the judge just slaps the offender on the hand and lets them go.
Certainly my opinions have changed considerably. And I am so un-civilized I feel that those elected officials who don't want to do the job hired to do should PAY THE PENALTY OF THOSE THEY refuse to protect society from.
Don't want to find stolen money? Fine, YOU pay the victims.
Some accountability has to be had.
The cowboys have an old saying, "Depends upon whose bull is being gored."
If it isn't your bull you don't give diddly squat! True Story!

I think perhaps it's time for us to have a heart to heart talk about this situation and see if we can come to an amicable agreement. I re-read your e-mail sent yesterday and went back through all of the e-mails to February. The common thread running through all is that you don't have the time to build my home or finish my barn.
Today, in June 2008, I am as close to having my own bed, cooking in my own kitchen, as I was in December 2007 when my mothers funds to purchase a home was transferred from England to the United States.
With the 1600 ft home not yet started and a horse barn that consists of nothing but 4 walls. With a well that has never been used and electricity not yet onto the property the only work of any substance that has been done on that property in two months is the septic system.
And the property has been left in an awful mess.
In the past few weeks I have had three real estate agents view the property and tell me what the market value was while we tried to figure out what my losses were going to be if you did not adhere to the contract.
Each one could not put a market value price above 40k for property I paid 30k for 6 months ago. The cost of the septic was not included in that estimate. Seeing as you will not tell me what the septic cost or who put it inI have no idea what the added value is. I do know that the well is a shallow well and that was not costly at all.
The barn, because it needed so much work and has NO building permits, was seen as a liability not an asset.
There should be a substantial amount remaining in the building fund I had sent to purchase a home. A SUBSTANTIAL amount.
It if is enough to build a 1600 sq ft home then it certainly is enough for me to buy a nice modular and get it moved onto the property. If there is enough for you to finish the barn there is enough for me to finish the barn.
The difference is, if I purchase a modular and get friends and family to help I can be in a home within 4 weeks - a home with water & electricity instead of my sleeping in the cab of my truck wondering when my home will be finished.
We could then go about our business and see to the priorities we have. For myself that is getting myself into a home as quickly as possible, getting back to work and being able to see my mother.
"No, I will not return any monies, besides you were homeless when I met you - what's the difference?" The refusal to return my mothers money said by BOTH Sylvi & Robert Huckins!
I am trying to find ANY government official(s) who are willing to protect residents of New Mexico from business people who are taking money and then refusing to give the services paid for. ( A builder/contractor.)
I have $80,000+ in cash missing from a safe deposit box- where it was placed as a building fund in DECEMBER 2007.
The builder was NOT supposed to take it, but AFTER telling the assistant district attorney that it was IN a safe deposit box he took the money and refuses to put it back.
I have 4 walls to the horse barn, the septic and the well done..And those have taken 7 months. He has broken every
schedule, lied about buying material, and lied about WHERE my mothers money has gone to.
I am homeless. Literally homeless with this building project just draining me more than I can cope with. I have NO protection, He has all of our money and he has robbed us of all of my hope.
Previous clients/victims tried to get the state to revoke his building license.
Did they? No, they simply ignored the clients he had stolen money from.
Mr.Bingaman, Are you going to tell me that you can't do anything either?
