Congresswoman Michelle Lujan Grisham, a 12th-generation New Mexican, has dedicated her life to serving her community, fighting for seniors and veterans, and building an economy that works for all New Mexicans. Serving her third term representing New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District, Rep. Lujan Grisham was recently chosen by her colleagues to serve as chairwoman of the prestigious Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
Rep. Lujan Grisham serves on the Budget Committee and Agriculture Committee in the U.S. House of Representatives. She passed legislation to help local tribes, public schools and pay for training for law enforcement. She also took on the VA to increase veterans’ access to health care, convinced the Social Security Administration to hire more judges, and held bureaucrats accountable for cleaning up a jet-fuel spill that threatened Albuquerque’s drinking water.
Prior to serving in Congress, Lujan Grisham served as a cabinet secretary for three different New Mexico governors – overseeing the Department of Aging & Long-Term Services and the Department of Health. She also started her own small business and was elected as a Bernalillo County Commissioner.
