In November, the people of New Mexico spoke with a clear voice, and elected the most diverse and progressive group of leaders in state history. From diverse backgrounds as educators, public health advocates and renewable energy engineers, these leaders ran on and received strong mandates from voters to put the health of our kids and our economy, as well as our clean air and water, at the forefront.
From all over the state, new legislators, and new statewide leaders like Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham and State Land Commissioner Stephanie Garcia Richard are already hitting the ground running looking for ways to lead New Mexico into the future, moving forward important legislation protecting health care, ensuring the safety of our communities and improving our record on education.
This transformative change will take key improvements to our regulatory system, as well as a crucial piece of legislation currently making its way through the Roundhouse that can help give New Mexicans the health, air and water protections we deserve.
