Santa Fe, NM – Please see the below statement from New Mexico Attorney General Hector
Balderas, following the passing of Representative Henry “Kiki” Saavedra:
“Chairman Saavedra was a compassionate and strong leader that will greatly be missed. He
taught my generation of legislative leaders to always be optimistic and civil in the communities
we serve. He served all people in New Mexico as a statesman and a veteran of the U.S. Air
National Guard. My thoughts are with his family.”

At the center of the seal is a gradient circle with a dark blue roman-inspired Pillar in the shape of New Mexico.
