Letter: Thanks to voters for supporting bonds on ballot


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

On behalf of Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell and New Mexico Military Institute, we would like to thank the voters of Chaves County who supported library Bond B and higher education Bond C on Nov. 3. Both bonds passed by 55% in Chaves County and because of that support, our campuses, our students and ultimately our community as a whole will benefit.

We would also like to thank the many service clubs and organizations who gave us the opportunity to speak to their members and provide information about Bonds B and C.

We also appreciate the Roswell Daily Record’s articles about these issues on the ballot and other local media for giving us time to share information and answer questions.

With these bond funds, we can now move forward with needed renovations to NMMI barracks sink rooms and new roofs for Wilson Hall, Godfrey Athletic Center and Toles Learning Center.

At ENMU-Roswell, we can make critical campus safety and security upgrades to our video surveillance equipment and exterior lighting. These construction and renovation projects will help to maintain the campus facilities voters have already invested in and will also bring jobs into our community.

Both of our campus libraries, the Roswell Public Library and public school libraries in the county will also now receive funds to update technology, equipment and improve 24/7 access to resources and information.

We sincerely appreciate the support we continue to receive in Chaves County and across the state.

We value the trust voters have placed in us as we work to improve our infrastructure for the benefit of our students.

Maj. Gen. Jerry Grizzle, Superintendent, NMMI;
Shawn Powell, President, ENMU-Roswell
