RPNM Chairman’s Statement on Governor’s Amended Public Health Order

Posted On July 30, 2020

The following is a statement from Republican Party of New Mexico Chairman Steve Pearce after today’s Public Health Order update from Gov. Lujan Grisham:

“Today the governor blatantly made the Public Health Order political. During her press conference, the governor denounced candidates for going door to door, taking away our freedom of speech and right to seek votes. The Democrats are running scared. Now the governor wants to benefit their inactive candidates by outlawing campaigning! Yet she allows protests in the streets. Instead of addressing the real needs of New Mexicans, Gov. Lujan Grisham also blamed the Trump Administration and attacked Washington politicians for having no plan. She provides no answers herself, no leadership for New Mexicans.”

“She also took aim at Republicans over unemployment. The governor offers no direction, no hope, and has now cemented even harder the state’s economic collapse by extending her Public Health Order. For months her emergency orders and unjust, inequitable decisions have violated our rights, attacked our freedoms, and crushed our local economies. Today the governor reminded us that we’re “a poor state.” Yet her school reopening plan ignores families without computers and internet creating a further class divide. This governor doesn’t get it—she’s the CEO of New Mexico.”
