Democratic Party of New Mexico Chair Marg Elliston released the following statement regarding Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham’s planned reopening of retail establishments:
“We’re proud to see that Governor Lujan Grisham continues to take a science-based approach to address the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to her steady and prudent leadership, New Mexico has successfully begun to flatten our curve and we’re able to safely reopen the small businesses that are the backbone of our economy. Throughout this crisis, our statewide leaders have been working to balance the public health and economic impacts of this crisis so that New Mexico can come through it as safely and successfully as possible.
“We continue to encourage New Mexicans to do everything possible to flatten the curve, including staying home, wearing masks, and voting absentee in the upcoming primary election.”
