Justice Shannon Bacon & Justice David Thomson Campaign Kickoff @ Law Offices of Egolf + Ferlic + Martinez + Harwood
Aug 15 @ 5:30 pm

Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham appointed  Shannon and David to the NM Supreme Court earlier this year, after having been recommended by the bi-partisan Judicial Nominating Commission. Now, they must run in the 2020 Election to keep their seats on the NM Supreme Court. Join them as they kick off their campaigns statewide.

Both candidates are pursuing public financing under NM’s Voter Action Act. The Act allows the campaign committee to accept up to $100 from individual, NM-registered voters. (Business and companies cannot contribute – only individuals who are registered to vote in NM).

Keep Justice Shannon Bacon

Keep Justice David Thomson
