  • Gov. David F. Cargo will be greatly missed in our state of New Mexico. He has meant a lot to the people especially those in the small communities.

    His influential and caring concern for the state went far beyond his time as governor. He continued to be involved in the government and the needs of the small communities. In Mora, he was much loved by the people.

    He did so much for them and other small communities while he was governor and continued to show his concern afterwards.
