Why I'm Running
I am running to be the next Bernalillo County District Attorney because I believe that justice matters. It matters in our personal lives and in how we define ourselves as a community. It matters in the values we teach our children and in how we hold ourselves accountable to one another. It matters because only when justice is present in our lives are we free to achieve our full potential and build the kind of community we can all be proud of. I'm running to reform, rebuild, and renew our criminal justice system.
