    Our community finds itself at just such a precipice with the impending decision about the Trinity Place strip mall development.
    When we began our quest back in 2005, we were searching for a formula that would significantly diversify our retail sector, provide a suite of new and exciting shopping opportunities, greatly enhance gross receipts tax revenue, provide a community gathering place, and ensure a large, constant revenue stream for our schools.

    Lujan said he was diagnosed with cancer in 2009 and has undergone radiation and chemotherapy treatment. He said his cancer is now at stage 4, the most advanced stage of cancer.
