SANTA FE – Michelle Lujan Grisham isn’t expecting much sleep the next few days.
She was preparing late Monday for a private swearing-in ceremony at midnight with relatives and friends at the Capitol – when she formally becomes the governor of New Mexico.
Nine hours later, she will head to Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Santa Fe, followed by a public inauguration at noon and inaugural balls in the evening.
Today “is going to be a really exciting but incredibly long day,” she said.
Lujan Grisham wrapped up her transition Monday by filling critical positions in the Governor’s Office.
