09/06/2017

Bernalillo County Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins invites the community to her next monthly neighborhood luncheon on Wednesday, Sept. 20, noon-1 p.m. at the McKinley Community Center, 3401 Monroe NE.

This month’s guest speaker is Raúl Torrez, Bernalillo County District Attorney. Raúl Torrez will discuss many important issues facing Albuquerque, including crime and addiction, and the efforts and programs being used by his office to combat these problems and protect the community.

Before being sworn in on January 1, 2017, as District Attorney, Raúl Torrez, who was born and raised in Albuquerque, worked at every level of the criminal justice system, including Assistant United States Attorney, Assistant Attorney General and Assistant District Attorney. In 2009, President Obama appointed Raúl to serve as a White House Fellow and Special Counsel to the Deputy Attorney General of the United States. In that role, he represented the Department of Justice in critical criminal justice issues including efforts to reduce southwest border violence, crack down on drug cartels, and reduce violent crime and domestic abuse.

Prior to his legal career, Raúl helped a start-up company dedicated to good government and served as the Development Officer for the César E. Chávez Foundation. He is a former American Bar Association/Young Lawyers Division Scholar and served as Deputy Regional President of the Hispanic National Bar Association, Treasurer for the New Mexico Hispanic Bar Association and was a board member of the Rio Grande Community Development Corporation.

This is a Brown Bag lunch. You bring a sandwich and we will provide the beverages. An RSVP to jhartley@bernco.gov is appreciated but not required.

Please feel free to share with your friends, neighbors and association memberships.
