Kerry Kiernan announces candidacy for New Mexico Court of Appeals

Albuquerque appellate lawyer Kerry Kiernan of the Sutin, Thayer & Browne law firm has announced his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for the New Mexico Court of Appeals.  If Kiernan wins that nomination, he would likely face current Judge Miles Hanisee, a Republican, in the 2014 general election.

Campaign Kick-Off event will be held on Friday, August 2. Kiernan has announced that he will be pursuing public financing for his campaign under the New Mexico Voter Action Act.

I was once involved in a case in federal district court where Kerry Kiernan was on the other side, and I can say without reservation that he was a very civil and highly competent opponent.

I have not heard whether any other candidates will be seeking the Democratic nomination for the seat.  If you know of anyone else who has, or will, announce his or her candidacy, please drop me a line.
