Luján Meets With Local Leaders in Mora to Discuss Wildfire Recovery
Mora, N.M. – Today, U.S. Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.) met with county and local officials from Mora, New Mexico, to discuss the historic wildfires that rage across the state and mitigation efforts to ensure affected New Mexicans can recover and rebuild from these disasters as quickly and strongly as possible.
“Collaboration with local leaders is one of the most important parts of my job – especially during emergencies,” said Luján. “New Mexicans are facing the devastating effects of these wildfires and floods on a daily basis, and they deserve a robust, coordinated response from their elected leaders. My staff and I have been in constant communication with the communities enduring the worst damage, such as Mora and Las Vegas, which has allowed us to help folks on the ground and secure resources for recovery.”
Senator Luján met with local elected leaders, including Mora County Commission Chair Veronica Serna, Mora County Manager Michael Rivera, Mora Emergency Manager David Montoya, Sheriff Amos Espinosa, Under Sheriff Americk Padilla, and Robert Baca of the Mora-San Miguel Electric Cooperative.
