1. ICYMI - CIBOLA COUNTY SHERIFF TONY MACE DISCUSSES UNCONSTITUTIONAL NM GUN LAW

Cibola County Sheriff Tony Mace, president of the New Mexico Sheriff's Association, has been a key leader in the fight against the unconstitutional gun laws that earlier this year passed the New Mexico legislature and were signed into law by Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham.

We are deeply troubled by the recent breaking news about secret payouts to state employees that appear to have violated state procedures which are supposed to protect taxpayers from paying out frivolous claims.

We support the valiant efforts of leaders like Republican State Senator Sander Rue who fight every day to make New Mexico’s state government transparent and accountable to the people. In order to create and maintain transparency, we call upon our state government leaders, that include the Governor and the Attorney General, to take action to unseal these secret agreements.
