The Committee to Keep Judge Daniel Gallegos is running a genuine grassroots campaign in Bernalillo
County and WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
Any amount you can contribute is greatly appreciated! You can rest assured that your hard-earned money
will be spent effectively and efficiently in our effort to keep Judge Gallegos on the district court bench!
The Code of Judicial Conduct prohibits a judge from knowing the identities of those persons contributing
to the campaign, and the Code requires all fundraising to be conducted by the campaign committee. While
this rule seemingly protects judicial independence and impartiality, Judge Gallegos believes that this rule
does not go far enough. That is, even if Judge Gallegos has no knowledge about the sources of
contributions to his campaign, the reality is that if either of the parties appearing before Judge Gallegos
knows that the other party donated to the campaign, the non-donor party may nevertheless think he or she
is going to be treated unfairly or that the deck will be stacked against him or her.
In order to combat any perception of partiality, or worse, corruption, Judge Gallegos has directed the
campaign committee as follows:
No campaign contributions will be solicited or accepted from attorneys who are likely to appear in front of Judge Gallegos, nor shall contributions be solicited or accepted from lobbyists.
Because the Committee is unlikely to identify individual donors who meet this
description, we ask that potential donors self-identify, and if they meet this description, refrain from
contributing monetarily to the campaign. We thank you in advance for helping Judge Gallegos in his fight
for a truly independent judiciary!
