Luján Statement on Passing of Ron Wilmot

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Ben Ray Luján (D-N.M.), the U.S. House Assistant Speaker, issued the following statement on the passing of Ron Wilmot, a staffer in his Tucumcari, N.M. office:

“Yesterday, a longtime staffer and friend, Ron Wilmot, passed away. I am grieving with his family, friends, and the Quay community today over the loss of a dedicated public servant who brought care and attention to the people of New Mexico’s Third Congressional District. Ron was an original member of my team and epitomized what a congressional case manager can achieve by bringing a big heart, boundless optimism, and a belief in service to the job. Unquestionably, Ron made a significant difference in the lives of many through his public service and tenure as publisher and president of the Quay County Sun. His passing is a devastating loss for New Mexico. We will miss Ron, but will never forget him or his boundless kindness.”
