Hello to everyone!
This past week at the Republican Party of New Mexico we continued our work to prepare for the upcoming redistricting process. We want to fight for fair districts by encouraging our legislators to fight for competitive lines. It is a long and complex process and over the summer we will strive to keep you informed on what is coming up and how you can get involved. Please also check in with the New Mexico Legislature’s Redistricting site for the latest news and information on the public comment period.
Last Thursday night, at the Dona Ana County Lincoln-Reagan Day dinner, guests were treated to a wonderful speech from Governor Susana Martinez on her bold plans to improve New Mexico’s education system and ensure a brighter future for New Mexico’s kids. State Representatives Rick Little and Terry McMillan were also on hand to provide updates and insights from the 2011 legislative session. Spirits were high and the turnout was exceptional. The number of young people in attendance was especially impressive and encouraging. Congratulations to County Chairman Russell Allen and the committee on a great event and a job well done.
RPNM is looking forward to Independence Day next weekend and all the Fourth of July activities that will be happening around New Mexico in the days ahead. I personally have watermelon and fireworks on the brain already.
If you plan to attend your town’s parade or Fourth of July celebration please take a picture and submit it to email@example.com. We would love to have photos and/or short videos from Republican floats, booths or patriotic moments that you are willing to share. Celebrating America’s birthday and honoring our freedom, and those who sacrifice to ensure that our Country will endure, is a special and moving occasion. We would be grateful if you would let your Republican friends from around New Mexico share in your celebration.
