We wanted to inform you that another conservative candidate, Thomas C. Montoya, is running for Court of Appeals, Position 3. Mr. Montoya’s candidacy will mean conservative Republicans will be running for all three appellate seats.
Mr. Montoya, born and raised in New Mexico, has been practicing divorce and family law for more than 38 years. He has an “A” preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings. He’s been named in Southwest Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers in America and Best of the Bar for Family Law by New Mexico Business Weekly. Mr. Montoya has also lobbied and testified more than 30 times on family law legislation and has acted as appellate counsel in a dozen cases. He received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Southern California.
The next step is for Mr. Montoya’s campaign to collect 1,253 $5 contributions. State law requires this because Mr. Montoya, like our other judicial candidates, has decided on public funding. The contributions are part of the electoral process. If his campaign gets the needed number of contributions, he will receive matching public funds.
By law, judicial candidates cannot ask for donations, nor can they accept contributions from interest groups.
The collected $5 contributions will go to the Public Election Fund.
Contributors can be ANY registered voter of any party, but it is imperative that they print their name and address on a Qualifying Contribution form as registered with the New Mexico Secretary of State.
The deadline for the 1,253 $5 contributions is June 12. Time is short, so please fill out the form and send your $5 contribution today.
Any checks must be made payable to the Public Election Fund with Mr. Montoya’s name on the memo line or you can send cash.
The forms with enclosed contributions should be mailed to:
5150-A San Francisco Rd., NE
Albuquerque, NM 87109
Contributions can also be mailed to:
P.O. Box 94083
Albuquerque, NM 87199-4083
Thank you all again for your drive and commitment as we work together to turn our state red.
