Bruch and Meek Keep Seats On Commission


Democrat Katherine Bruch successfully ran for reelection as Sandoval County Commissioner in District 1.

In an interview with Corrales Comment lamented the bipartisan cooperation of the past.

"We’d walk in, and we’d see our friends and neighbors working there from both parties and recognize that they are there to serve all of us and do the right thing," she said. "This business about stuffing ballots or ballot harvesting—the fraud that has been alluded to—I have seen no evidence that this is happening, especially in our county."

Bruch is focused on her mandate as a Sandoval County Commissioner. "We have some significant needs with regards to infrastructure, with regards to health and safety, with fire protection and emergency services. We pursue opportunities to address substance abuse and mental health. We have a detention center that we have to manage. We have a landfill, she said. "We have a lot of responsibilities that are day in, day in day out—administrative responsibilities."

Commissioner Bruch serves the residents of the Town of Bernalillo, the Village of Placitas, Eastern Rio Rancho, Algodones, Pueblo of Sandia, Budaghers, Santo Domingo, Pena Blanca, the Town of Cochiti Lake and La Madera.

In another commission race, Republican Michael Meek ran a successful reelection campaign to keep his seat for District 3. Meek defeated Democrat Gregory Bennett 54-46%.
