By Carl Trujillo, State Representative 46
Our upcoming primary will soon determine the democratic candidate for District Attorney for the 1st Judicial District, which includes the counties of Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, and Los Alamos.
The person most qualified to represent the Democratic Party is Maria Sanchez-Gagne. Maria has dedicated 20 years of her professional career prosecuting tough felony cases and protecting innocent victims. She also knows the need to treat addicts but will be firm in convictions, making sure the communities are kept safe. She will create a robust system so that DWI cases will be prosecuted and not slip through the cracks. She has a proven record as a good mentor and supervisor of younger attorney’s. Maria is by far the most experienced and accomplished candidate in the election for District Attorney.
Under Maria’s leadership, we will be proud of the District Attorney’s Office.
