Legislative update from Rep. Eric Lucero

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I wish you blessings, fun, and safe travels this holiday season as we remember the great words of the prophet Isaiah “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given” while celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.

2020 has been a crushing year for many individuals, families, and businesses across our great community and state, but I’m absolutely committed to continuing the fight in the ongoing battle for truth, our values and principles, the Constitution, and the future of our great Republic! I’ve included several pictures below recapping just a handful of the events and activities I participated in throughout 2020.

I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a MUCH, MUCH, MUCH happier New Year in 2021!
