On Tuesday evening, more than 10,000 New Mexicans joined a telephone town hall meeting with Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), local community leaders, and the Sierra Club to celebrate President Barack Obama’s recent decision to permanently protect the state’s Rio Grande del Norte region as a new national monument.
During the hour-long event, Senator Heinrich and Congressman Luján were joined by Questa Mayor Esther Garcia, Mora County Commissioner John Olivas, and Rivers & Birds Executive Director Roberta Salazar for a discussion of what the new Rio Grande del Norte National Monument means to New Mexico. New Mexicans participating in the call also had the opportunity to ask questions and get more information about the designation.
“I would like to thank the New Mexico Sierra Club for hosting a virtual town hall meeting to connect with thousands of constituents across the state to celebrate the designation of our new national monument,” Heinrich said. “The Rio Grande del Norte National Monument is a prime example of what can happen when local communities, businesses, sportsmen, tribes, elected officials, land grant heirs and others come together to build a brighter future for all New Mexicans.”
