    Local Roswell NM resident and business owner Natasha N. Mackey made history last night. She is the first black female elected to serve on the Roswell City Council. She intends to be a "mover and a shaker" and looks forward to being part of the movement to revive Roswell.

    "I would like to thank you for electing me as the fresh voice for Ward 1," Mackey stated. "I look forward to representing you well as a member of the City Council. It is my desire to continue to keep the lines of communication open between myself and the residents of Ward 1 by hosting quarterly Meet and Greets. I will listen to your concerns and find timely responses and resolutions to the issues raised concerning our city. The collaborative work of the Mayor and City Councilors is vital to the success of our community as a whole. I look forward to working on the City Council to revive Roswell."

    Natasha Mackey has lived in Roswell for 8 years and lived in New Mexico for almost 20 years. She has worked in the Roswell community through various initiatives to bring unity in the city through the 21 Days of Prayer and youth rallies. She is a member of Gateway Church International under the leadership of Rick and Linda Rapp. In addition, she is a member of the Roswell Chamber of Commerce and serves on the Keep Roswell Beautiful board as the secretary.
