Letter from Supporters

Dear Neighbor,

We are writing in support of Joy Goldbaum, who is a candidate for Municipal Judge.

Joy is qualified, honest, compassionate, and dedicated to serving the people of Las Cruces.

Joy has been a practicing attorney in Southern New Mexico for over 25 years. She spent 15 years as a Special Assistant Attorney General for the New Mexico Child Support Enforcement Division; she has also worked as a Special Commissioner for Domestic Violence, and been both a public defender and a prosecutor in New Mexico. She understands both sides of the court room, is comfortable handling a court docket, and is experienced with working with self-represented parties.

Joy has good ideas for making the court function better. For example, she believes Las Cruces would benefit from starting a Homeless Court Program. A Homeless Court Program would help the Court close cases sooner, free up Law Enforcement to spend more time on violent and felony crimes, make it more likely that homeless defendants appear for their hearings and comply with their sentences, and reduce the population of non-violent homeless defendants detained in jail. Closing cases and keeping people out of jail is also a fiscally responsible solution for our city. Homeless Courts have also been shown to help homeless individuals gain stability, stopping the cycle of going from the street to jail and back to the street again.

We need a judge like Joy Goldbaum. Las Cruces deserves great judges. When you go to vote in the upcoming municipal election, we ask you to vote for Joy!

Thank you!
