Gallant Solutions, a Camarillo-based provider of technical staffing and executive search services as well as environmental consulting, has opened a branch office in Albuquerque, N.M. The new unit will concentrate on serving New Mexico's energy and defense industries, said Bill Barbee, Gallant's executive vice president. "Several of our consulting clients in Ventura County have interests in New Mexico, so it seemed natural to expand our efforts in that state," Barbee said.

If you want to know why California is losing businesses to other states, you can find the answer here. Need financing for a new factory? Meet Ron Smith of Bank of New Mexico. Want the new building up in four months, guaranteed? That's contractor Stephen Elliott's specialty. Looking for temporary housing? No sweat. Water permits? Road access? City development chief Art Corsie will work it out. State worker training funds? Call New Mexico's governor, Bruce King.

Franco Fernandez's comments about California's supposedly anti-business environment (letter, Aug. 27) spur me to ask how many states he does business in. Over the last five years my company has done business in New Mexico, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Michigan, Tennessee, Colorado, Texas and, of course, California. I have always found your state's employees to be helpful and hard-working and the required forms fairly simple and straightforward. Perhaps Fernandez should listen to less Republican propaganda and do more direct research himself before criticizing his state.
