Albuquerque, NM – Please see the below statement from New Mexico Attorney General Hector
Balderas, following the news of the passing of Senator John Pinto.
“I am truly saddened by the passing of Senator Pinto. I will miss his inspirational view of the
world and his kindness. Senator Pinto led New Mexico through some of its most important
periods of progress. He honored his state as its longest-serving senator, and his nation as a
Navajo Code Talker. My prayers are with his family.”
