NM-03: Luján to Hold Thank You New Mexico Town Halls Across District

Ben Ray Luján (r) talks to voter at town hall before election

That Ben Ray Luján (or maybe I should start getting used to calling him Congressman Luján). He never stops. Fresh off his week-long trip to DC to attend the freshman orientation for new members of Congress, he'll be reaching out again to New Mexicans in the Third Congressional District -- starting on Monday.

Congressman-elect Ben Ray Luján just announced the schedule for his Thank You New Mexico Town Hall Tour to express his gratitude to the voters of New Mexico and to talk with them about the issues facing the state and the country:

"I'm excited to meet with the people of the district, thank them for their support and talk to them about the challenging issues facing our state and our country," Luján said.

As part of the Thank You New Mexico Tour, Luján will hold several regional town halls. Every town hall is open to the public. I know I'm going to try and go to one of them to hear Ben Ray's take on his week in Washington and his plans for the future.

Here's the schedule for his Thank You events:
