Mayor proposes decorating with blue to honor law enforcement1

The holiday season might look a lot different this year in Rio Rancho.

Mayor Gregg Hull is asking Rio Rancho residents and businesses to string up blue holiday lights and d├ęcor in honor of law enforcement officers.

“We are one of the safest cities in New Mexico and I want to show the state how our city can come together to honor those who protect and serve us on a daily basis,” he said.

The mayor will judge the bluest business, house and residential street based on nominations made by residents.

The winners will be presented with a proclamation and receive a personal delivery of cookies and hot chocolate from the mayor on Dec. 20.
