“Dr. King’s words inspired, and continue to inspire daily, millions across the globe,” Hull said.

He also said people are asked through their acts of dedication and service in local communities what they do for others.

“I, Greggory D. Hull, the mayor of Rio Rancho, do hereby recognize January 16, 2023, as the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday in Rio Rancho,” he said.
