For New Mexico Only
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham on Tuesday ordered state flags to half-staff in honor of former New Mexico Chief Justice Charles Daniels, who passed away this weekend.
Per Gov. Lujan Grisham’s executive order, flags will fly at half-staff beginning immediately through sundown Thursday, September 5th.
Gov. Lujan Grisham’s previously-issued statement on the passing of the Honorable Justice Daniels.
“I am truly saddened by the loss of an undisputed leader in the New Mexico legal community. Justice Daniels was an honest and committed jurist, a man of stellar wit and devotion to fairness and equity. As chief justice, he led New Mexico’s highest court with clarity and conviction, leaving a legacy rivaled by few. Not only was he professionally talented, he was incredibly kind, with a warm personality that drew so many people to him, including myself.
“I am incredibly grateful for his many years of service to the people of New Mexico. He made an immeasurable difference in the legal community and his loss will be deeply felt across the state. My thoughts are with his wife, Randi, and their family and friends, who I am keeping in my prayers.”
**When flown at half-staff or half-mast, the U.S. flag should be hoisted first to the peak for an instant and then lowered to the half-staff or half-mast position. The flag should again be raised to the peak before it is lowered for the day.
