I'm a long time advocate of law enforcement. I supported and voted for hiring a police chief in Belen that would boost morale within our police department and bring down crime. Our new police chief did exactly that.
My family has fallen victim to not only violent crime but to our own court system. Interpretations of our current laws let three murderers out into the public with only two years of jail time.
Our police officers are doing their job. It's time our court system does its part. We need stronger and broader laws that condemn violent and repeat crime.
I'm aware of the crime that rattles our county. It's time Valencia County residents feel safer in their homes.
As your next Representative of House District 7, I'll introduce strong legislation that'll crack down on violent and repeat offenders.
