Crystal Diamond Formally Assumes Office Of State Senator

On Monday, January 4, the Sierra County commission chambers was the site for the official swearing in ceremony for newly elected State Senator, Crystal Diamond. Elected to represent New Mexico District 45 in the November elections, Diamond chose a Sierra County location for the ceremony. Sierra County Magistrate Court Judge Alan Brown presided. “I could have been sworn in, like most do, in Santa Fe,” Senator Diamond told us. “I am the first senator to serve that actually comes from Sierra County, so it means even more for the swearing in to be done here. This is my home, my community. I wanted the ceremony here so it would be done by people I know, who matter to me and my family, especially my daughters, could be a part of it.” Diamond has already taken up her duties, working to represent her community as the legislature prepares for the 2021 sessions.
