U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich is traveling to western New Mexico for a series of community meetings.

The New Mexico Democrat is spending Wednesday in Grant County, where he is hosting round table discussions in Silver City on helping small businesses and job seekers. He is also meeting with students at Western New Mexico University to talk about student loan debt and how to make college more affordable.

Later in the afternoon, Heinrich will lead a discussion with members from The Wellness Coalition, a non-profit coalition that works to assess youth needs and service gaps.

Heinrich will end the day at the Silver City Tourism & Visitor Information Center, where he will deliver remarks at the Silver City Gateway Community Continental Divide National Scenic Trail Designation.
