New Covid cases in New Mexico are declining, recently under 1000 a day from a peak of over 3000, but now back up over 1000 per day.  Tighter restrictions ordered by our Governor and state Department of Health have helped reduce new cases, but most importantly the cooperation of our fellow citizens. Please wear your mask, minimize travel and shopping, maintain distancing, and sanitize after touching ANYTHING; door handles, shopping carts, self-checkouts, keypads, pens, etc.  Allow extra distance between you and unmasked or improperly masked people.  Note that the Silver City Police Department is issuing citations for non-masking and improper masking.

Covid Vaccine is coming to New Mexico!

 

Healthcare workers first;  The general public hopefully by Summer.

 

Visit the New Mexico Department of Health information site and pre-register now to be notified when the vaccine becomes available.

Well, based on the violence, threats, and seditious statements of trump supporters, maybe not that happy yet.  But with Rev Warnock and Jon Ossoff victorious in Georgia, things are looking up, at least as far as returning to a sane, functioning government.

Petitions demanding Yvette Herrell's resignation

 

Herrell has continuously supported the Republican Party’s disinformation campaign about the 2020 election, including President Trump's completely baseless accusations of widespread election fraud. Herrell supports Trump’s refusal to accept the election results and is complicit in the undemocratic, violent takeover of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday which delayed congressional action to certify President-elect Biden’s win until late into the night.

Throughout her campaign for the U.S. House seat, she invoked support of President Donald Trump’s bigoted and undemocratic ideals. She continues, just days after her swearing in, a show of obsequious loyalty and parroting with Trump’s false claims about election fraud.

Despite Wednesday’s violent insurrection intended to overturn the election results and illegitimately keep Donald Trump in power, Herrell voted AGAINST certifying Arizona and Pennsylvania's electoral votes.
