As elected city leaders, New Mexico Municipal League members understand the importance of creating jobs in a state where recovery from the 2008-2009 recession has been slow at best.

It seems as though the secret agent genre has been undergoing something of a resurgence recently, with titles like Kingsman: The Secret Service, Spy, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, Spectre and Bridge of Spies hitting cinemas over the past year.
