By JUDGE PAT A. CASADOS
Los Alamos Magistrate Court
Citizens of Los Alamos,
Thank you so much for the honor of serving as your Magistrate Judge for another term. It is such a privilege to serve.
I want to thank the voters. It was such a joy to see all the people in Los Alamos who care about the election. I especially want to thank Nancy Holmes for being my campaign manager. I could not have done it without you. Thank you to my family for all your support and putting up with me.
I want to thank the Democratic Party of Los Alamos County for all your support and all the friends and neighbors who put up signs and spread the word.
We call our judges “Your Honor”. Every time I hear or see this in front of my name I am reminded that it is an honor, privilege and heavy responsibility to serve the citizens of Los Alamos and the State of New Mexico. Each time I put on the robe, attend a meeting, travel to another court I know I represent Los Alamos and New Mexico.
I grew up where a man’s word was his bond. You have my word I will work every day to represent you and treat those who appear before me with dignity, integrity, fairness, and uphold the laws of the State of New Mexico. Thank you again!
