County Commissioner Debbie O’Malley officially joined the Bernalillo County Board of Commissioners Dec. 7 after being sworn in during a special ceremony held at the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Government Center.
"I am honored to join the County Commission and represent the residents of District 1 who elected me to be their voice on the commission,” says Commissioner Debbie O’Malley. “I am already familiar with many of the quality of life initiatives that District 1 residents care about, which allows me to hit the ground running.”
O’Malley has served as an Albuquerque city councilor for the past seven years, representing some of the same neighborhoods that are part of County Commission District 1.
O’Malley was elected to the County Commission on Nov. 6. She will complete the remaining two years of a four-year term as commissioner of District 1, an office previously held by former County Commissioner Michelle Lujan Grisham. Lujan Grisham was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in November.
“Debbie is a seasoned public servant whose dedication and talents will bring depth to the Bernalillo County Board of Commissioners,” says Commission Chair Art De La Cruz. “We welcome her and look forward to collaborating with her on programs and projects that improve the lives of all Bernalillo County citizens.”
O’Malley will be seated at the commission’s Dec.11 meeting.
