This month鈥檚 content sponsor is the Friends of Salinas Pueblo Missions, who invite you to join them for the annual Luminaria de Ab贸 on December 2, 2023. This will be a magical evening with flickering luminaria amongst the historical ruins of the San Gregorio de Ab贸 Mission. There will be a Roman Catholic mass at 4:00 PM, followed by a posada, a traditional reenactment of the Holy Family鈥檚 search for lodging practiced in Mexico and Latin America since 1586. The public will be able to tour the grounds of the ruins amidst the flickering luminaria beginning at 5:30 PM, and there will be refreshments for all ages and pi帽atas for the children. This will be the largest luminaria event in Central New Mexico.

While these are technically not final results yet, they reflect the counting of write-in votes.

With the write-in ballots, the municipal judge race can be formally declared for Michelle Archuleta (allegedly, one write-in ballot was for "Annette's Mom," reflecting Archuleta's relationship with newly-elected town councilmember Annette Padilla).
