Senators Seek US Attorney Applicants

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich are accepting applications for the position of United States Attorney for the District of New Mexico.

On January 4, 2013, President Obama nominated current U.S. Attorney Kenneth Gonzales to a federal court judgeship. Upon Gonzales' confirmation by the Senate, the position of U.S. Attorney for the District of New Mexico will become vacant.

In accordance with their constitutional responsibility to provide advice and consent with respect to federal appointments, Udall and Heinrich will recommend a short list of qualified candidates for the position to the president.

Individuals who are interested in the position must complete and return an application to the senators offices no later than March 4, 2013.
