  • MAJOR PROFESSIONAL ACCOMPLISHMENT: Oversaw the renovation of the CYFD building providing improved housing for at-risk children. I helped prevent the DOJ from forcing a consent decree on NMSU’s athletic department. I reduced the delays in the New Mexico Workers’ Compensation system by about 30 percent. 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. I was instrumental in getting an arsonist convicted and incarcerated for a 13-year sentence.
  • MAJOR PERSONAL ACCOMPLISHMENT: My family – married 32 years to Julie Jensen with four daughters and three grandchildren.

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.
