I saved the New Mexico Workers’ Compensation system several million dollars a year by paying off our building early and I also ran a surplus every year giving literally millions of dollars to the general fund.

Why are you running and what strengths would you bring to the judiciary?

I am running because it is critical we have judges who will uphold the Constitution and the rule of law. I will bring to the judiciary 26 years of experience. As the Workers’ Compensation director I oversaw their court system reducing delays and increasing accessibility through online calendaring and video conferencing at the field offices. Currently I serve as a prosecutor and understand the importance of holding criminals accountable and protecting victims.
