1. Describe your platform and why you are running for office?
I would like to continue with the progress we have made from the last five plus years that I have been Municipal Judge. I have started a deferment program for first time offenders that has been very successful. This allows first time offenders to give back to the community by way of community service or donations to needy children. I have also contracted with the Farmington Municipal Probation Department to monitor our DWI offenders.
2. What do you think is the biggest challenge facing Aztec?
I think the state of our economy right now is going to be large challenge for all of our communities in the coming months and probably years. This will affect the court system as well as every other department in the city. Our challenge will be to continue with the programs now in place while dealing with smaller budgets to work with.
