Lenton Malry, Legislative Wrap-Up, Staying Safe in School

Lenton Malry

This week on New Mexico in Focus, correspondent Megan Kamerick has an in-depth discussion with former educator and lawmaker Lenton Malry. He served in the state legislature and on the Bernalillo County commission. Malry was the first African American elected to both positions and speaks openly about his experiences with racism in both the education system and the early years of his career.

Gene Grant and the Line opinion panelists debate the outcomes of the legislative session that ended last week and efforts to ramp up security in local schools in the wake of the recent shooting at a Florida high school. They also discuss reactions from early voters in Santa Fe to the new ranked-choice system.

  1. Thank you for this interview. Many years ago I attended the same church that Dr. Malry attended and it was wonderful to learn more about him and what he has done.
