ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Retired Judge William Lang will serve as chairman of New Mexico’s newly created ethics commission – a seven-member group that will begin hearing ethics complaints next year.
Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham announced the appointment Monday. In a written statement, her office called Lang “a well-respected jurist who worked in New Mexico law for nearly 40 years and continues to serve the community.”
Lang is a former chief judge in the state’s 2nd Judicial District Court in Albuquerque. He also has served as a Metropolitan Court judge, worked in private practice and served as a mediator and an arbitrator.
