ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The governor last week appointed a senior assistant county attorney to fill a vacant Metropolitan Court judgeship.
Jason Jaramillo will join the court’s civil division and is scheduled to be sworn in May 17.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham selected Jaramillo from a list of four candidates recommended by the Metro Court Nominating Commission.
Jaramillo graduated from the University of New Mexico School of Law in 2006 and has dedicated his entire legal career to public service, according to biography provided by the court. The Albuquerque native served in the Army National Guard and began his legal career as a prosecutor in Metro Court and an appellate attorney for the 2nd Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
Jaramillo and his wife, Vanessa, have two children, and are active volunteers at Mile High Little League.
