Santa Fe – The New Mexico State Fair begins this week in Albuquerque, however many youth participants will be shifting their focus to Roswell. Organizers of the annual State Fair livestock show canceled the Albuquerque event, citing Governor Lujan Grisham’s COVID mandates as a major factor in the decision. The event was reorganized in Roswell at the Eastern New Mexico Fairgrounds as the New Mexico Youth Livestock Expo on September 14 – 17, 2021.
“The tremendous effort that the city of Roswell and our agriculture community have put together to ensure that this moves forward really reveals how strong rural values run in this state,” said House Republican Leader Jim Townsend (Artesia) pictured above. “It is very unfortunate that the Governors decisions have impeded on the State Fair’s activities again this year, however I am certain that the youth livestock show will be just as good as it has ever been. These opportunities for our children to show and sell their work instills important values and keeps our state’s great agricultural heritage alive.”
Entries for the New Mexico Livestock Expo are due on September 8, 2021. Entries are free and there is no limit on the number of entries made. More information can be found at nmyle.fairwire.com.
“These livestock shows provide an important opportunity for future agriculture producers to learn livestock production, skills and practices, and I am so proud of New Mexicans banding together to ensure these opportunities are not lost,” said House Republican Caucus Chair Rebecca Dow (T or C). “Canceling the livestock show at the State Fair might seem insignificant compared to the other activities, yet the NM State Fair is one of the few events where Agriculture and Albuquerque come together. It’s a chance for urban kids to understand where their food comes from. In a time of unprecedented division in our nation, this was an opportunity to create understanding of our state’s diversity.”
Wife of Wounded ABQ Policer Officer Holds The Mayor and Police Chief Accountable
I agree with Tryna Verbeck!!! Why are not more holding the Mayor and Chief accountable? Where are the men???????????? The Mayor pretends he knows CRIME!!!!!!!!!! He has no reason to be up in front of the cameras and microphones every time their is a shooting in Albuquerque! NONSENSE! He knows so very little about Law Enforcement! I feel bad for Police Chief Harold Medina, he is caught between the Mayor, politics and the Justice Department. Remember the Mayor fired the last Chief we had in a city park. The Mayor runs the police department. I am very disturbed by the lack of support for our Police Officers! We learned from Tryna Verbeck that the day her husband and three other officers were shot there was only 5 officers on duty in the foothills, and 4 were shot!!!!!!! The city of Albuquerque is fighting this horrific Satanic wave of crime with a garden hose. It will continue to rage, it is Spiritual Warfare! Hearts need be changed for JESUS! The Church in Albuquerque needs to hit the streets and carry out THE GREAT COMMISSION, to reach into hell and save souls for JESUS! It is time for Christians to look into the mirror. What are you doing for JESUS? For heavens sake people of New Mexico you allow the killing of God’s babies through abortion!!! What are you doing about it? Do you understand my friend that carrying out THE GREAT COMMISION is not a suggestion? It is a command from our LORD!
