From the Jeremy Gay for Attorney General Campaign:
ALBUQUERQUE — Jeremy Gay, Republican Marine Veteran, filed Feb. 1 to run for New Mexico attorney general in the upcoming Jun. 7 primary elections.
“I’m excited to start my campaign,” Gay said, “and begin talking with my fellow New Mexicans about my vision for the future of our great state. New Mexico needs new, strong leadership in the Attorney General’s Office. For too long we’ve been led by career politicians that have put themselves ahead of the people they are supposed to represent. We deserve better than that.”
Gay earned his law degree from Ave Maria Law School in Naples, Fla. He later transitioned to active-duty military service as a United States Marine Corps Officer and judge advocate.
While on active duty, Gay served as a federal military justice criminal trial attorney, managed a legal assistance office, served as a Special Assistant United States Attorney, and honorably carried out all of his additional duties and obligations as a Captain of Marines.
“In the upcoming weeks,” continued Gay, “I look forward to officially launching my campaign and starting to have the important conversations with people about what I can do to serve them. Together, I know we can accomplish great things for our state and communities.”
Gay resides in Gallup with his wife and six children where he manages his own law firm, The Advocate Law Center, serving the legal needs of families and local businesses, defending victims of domestic violence, and providing legal services for the financially needy members of the community. This company is known for Native American law, personal injury, criminal defense, record expungement, and family law. In the past four years, Gay has prosecuted and defended federal felony offenses, and has legally advised service members, veterans, and their families.
Gay’s life of service, exceptional training, and hands-on experience have honed his ability and desire to serve the vast needs of his local community and the State of New Mexico. As a man with strong values and good experience, Gay will work hard to protect the community, uphold the state’s constitution, and promote the welfare of those whom he served once before.
