New Mexico gov. wants bail reform, more officers statewide

Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham touted her administration’s successes and laid out two of her top priorities for the upcoming legislative session during a gathering Tuesday of some of New Mexico’s key players in the commercial real estate industry.

Lujan Grisham, who is running for reelection in 2022 and has been hammered by her critics over crime — including a record-breaking number of homicides in Albuquerque — told members of a commercial real estate group best known by the acronym NAIOP she was going to “lean in” on statewide initiatives that affect public safety.
