Gov. Appoints More University Regents

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Gov. Susana Martinez today rounded out her regent appointments for UNM and NMSU.


At UNM, Martinez selected Bradley Hosmer, an Air Force lieutenant general who has served as superintendent of the Air Force Academy, to serve on the seven-member Board of Regents. Hosmer, of Cedar Crest, will replace Regent Raymond Sanchez.

Martinez also reappointed Regent Jack Fortner, a Farmington lawyer and UNM alum, to serve a third term on the board. Fortner currently serves as the regent vice president.

At NMSU, Martinez appointed Michael Cheney, a regional president for Wells Fargo bank in Las Cruces. Cheney graduated from NMSU in 1985. Cheney will replace NMSU Regent Blake Curtis.

Regents serve four-year terms on the university governing boards and receive no salary for the job.

On Monday, Martinez appointed student regents at UNM and NMSU. All available seats on the regent boards at both universities now have been appointed.

The nominees will face confirmation in the state Senate.
