Guardianship issues was the topic of the first hour of the July 29, 2020 edition of Speak Up, Las Cruces. Rio Hamilton, a Cruces native who returned from New York City to help his mother, will discuss his experiences so far in trying to do that, and Frances Williams will also discuss what she's seen of the case. We'll later talk with Rick Black who have been fighting guardianship abuses around the country full-time for several years. Rick will likely comment on the Hamilton case but also discuss ideas for policy and statutes to curb abuses. NONE OF THE ABOVE SAYS OR IS MEANT TO SAY THAT ANY PARTICULAR PERSON OR COMPANY IS GUILTY OF ABUSES IN THE HAMILTON CASE. We have invited the guardianship company involved in that case, and a lawyer involved in it, but neither chose to participate in this show. Also present throughout the hour -- on this case, the general problem of guardianship processes and the abuses of those, and legislative attempts to improve the situation -- will be Mary Kay Papen, State Senator and long-time Las Cruces resident.
