House Republicans ask for justice, fairness and equity for New Mexico
Santa Fe, NM– Today, all 24 New Mexico House Republican members delivered a letter to Governor Lujan Grisham highlighting the need for her to modify her Public Health Orders to ensure all New Mexicans are treated with justice, fairness, and equity.
The letter outlines a growing frustration with the Governor’s “one size fits all” approach across New Mexico and urges the Governor to recognize that local communities must have a stronger voice in determining when local businesses can reopen. In addition, the letter discusses the concerns of many New Mexicans about the inability of people to receive essential preventative healthcare services, the trampling of civil liberties, and the unfairness of how big box stores can remain in businesses while local small businesses are forced to close.
The House Republican letter also warned that there is little time remaining for the Governor to work with local community leaders to keep this growing frustration from devolving into civil disobedience. The 24 members of the House Republican Caucus called on the Governor to work with them to address the serious personal and economic hurt New Mexicans are feeling during this time of crisis.
