Strong knowledge of and experience with the law is an important qualification for a Municipal Judge. As a practicing attorney, Elizabeth will bring legal experience to the Municipal Court. She is practiced both as a defense attorney and as a prosecutor. She maintains currency with legal policy and precedent through teaching of law at UNM-LA.
Elizabeth is a strong advocate for youth in our community. Through her work at the Teen Center and as coordinator of the JJAB (Juvenile Justice Advisory Board), Elizabeth developed an understanding of problems facing our youth. The activities that stress our children and the complexity of the situations which form their lives are constantly changing with the fast paced lives they lead. Raising her own children in our community will provide Elizabeth direct experience with the issues facing children.
Elizabeth Allen has the legal qualifications, interest in youth, and commitment to the community necessary to serve as Municipal Judge.
I urge you to give your vote for Municipal Judge to Elizabeth Allen.
