ALBUQUERQUE - Today, RPNM Chairman Steve Pearce released the following statement after Governor-elect Michelle Lujan Grisham announced her first three cabinet selections, all of whom previously served under Governor Bill Richardson.
"One of the reasons I ran for Governor was to prevent a return to the disastrous days of the corrupt Bill Richardson Administration," said Pearce. "During the campaign, Michelle Lujan Grisham dismissed those concerns, but today she proved that New Mexicans were right to worry. Her very first picks to lead state departments all held positions under Richardson. New Mexicans should ask how this 'new' administration can govern any differently if its leaders are the very same people who worked under Richardson as he ran our state into the ground."
ALBUQUERQUE - RPNM Chairman Ryan Cangiolosi congratulated incoming chairman Steve Pearce, who was elected today by an overwhelming margin at a State Central Committee meeting in Albuquerque.
"I congratulate my friend Steve Pearce on his win in the chairman's race. Our party is in capable hands under Pearce's leadership and we will be positioned to succeed thanks to his extensive experience in management and New Mexico politics. I look forward to working with him in the upcoming election cycle to post strong Republican gains throughout the state. Our outgoing RPNM team will begin working right away to ensure a smooth transition. Congratulations, Chairman Pearce!"
