What they say about themselves: I desire to be the Mayor of Albuquerque because I believe in accountability, integrity, responsibility and using your life to make a difference in other people’s lives. This is truly public service. A prayer that my family always prays is asking the Lord to place us in situations where He can use us. I believe most of us desire to be of service as there is no greater reward than to have helped someone in your day. It brings us joy. It brings us happiness.
As a native of this great city, I have learned that we are like family. I attended Saint Mary’s, Valley High School, and the local campus of Wayland Baptist University. As a retired APD police woman, who was patrolling the streets by the age of 22 and then a detective working violent crimes, I believe in providing safety and security for the families, children and visitors of Albuquerque.
