JOIN THE MOVEMENT FOR A SAFER, FAIRER, AND STRONGER BERNALILLO COUNTY.
I’m a Democrat running for District Attorney in 2024 with a clear vision and commitment to change.
In my decade on the front lines of the criminal justice system, I've learned that a strong community is one where everyone feels safe and is treated fairly, regardless of who they are, what they look like, or where they come from.
Right now, that doesn’t describe Bernalillo County. For years, we’ve recycled the same old, status quo, tough-on-crime policies that divide us and make us weaker. When we throw law enforcement at every problem, treat people unfairly just to move things along, and overcrowd our jails and prisons at taxpayers’ expense without any practical long-term plan, we don’t make our community safer, fairer, and stronger.
But there is a way forward. A District Attorney’s office with a clear vision and a commitment to change. A vision that prioritizes the most violent crimes, partners with community providers to help address substance use, mental illness, and poverty, treats everyone with dignity and respect, and supports investments in long-term solutions to help returning citizens from jail or prison reintegrate without reoffending.
That’s why I’m running. To bring new leadership to the DA’s office, and to fight every day for a more sensible, thoughtful approach to public safety in Bernalillo County. For a strong community, where everyone feels safe and is treated fairly, regardless of who they are, what they look like, or where they come from.
I look forward to working for you, and thank you for your support.
