Senator Crystal Diamond Releases Statement in Response to Resignation of CYFD Secretary

SANTA FE — Today, Barbara Vigil announced her resignation as Cabinet Secretary of the Children, Youth and Families Department effective May 1, 2023. Senator Crystal Diamond (R-Elephant Butte) issued the following statement regarding Secretary Vigil's resignation: "I am heartbroken to see the vulnerable children of our state failed by this administration yet again. We had a chance to force structural change in the department that would have created stability and accountability. Instead, certain legislators were bullied by the Governor into rejecting viable, bipartisan solutions with the empty promise that Secretary Vigil would be a steady hand of change. This is truly a sad day for New Mexico." ###
