ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE)- New Mexicans across the state took the chance to meet their government face to face on Saturday.

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham and her administration hosted their first ‘Governor’s Cabinet in your Community’ event. Around 200 representatives from the state departments set up at the Carpenters Local 1319 Union Hall to help people take care of issues ranging from SNAP benefits and childcare to well water tests and business consultations.

“The idea of it is to bring the government directly to you. I mean, the governor is rock-solid committed to delivering constituent services directly to people,” said Tripp Stelnicki, the governor’s director of communications.

The governor’s office says they’ll be planning more events like this in the future.
