I retired from Vinson & Elkins, LLC, Dallas Office, after 23 years working as legal secretary and document production specialist. My husband, Mike, and I relocated to Ruidoso January 2010 and we love living in New Mexico. Since moving here, we both became members of the Democratic Party and have found our political home. I will work hard to continue building the Democratic Party membership here in Lincoln County and am proud to be a member of and represent such a wonderfully diverse party that truly represents the people of New Mexico.
