Primary 2018: Paloma G. Romo

Paloma Romo of Taos is running unopposed this year for Taos County Probate Judge.

In 2014, Romo, 36, ran against Republican Michael Tórrez to replace former probate judge Andres Vargas, who had then reached his two-term limit.

Halfway through her first term, Romo says the court has improved.

"I believe the probate court is more accessible to the public," Romo said. "We provide printed information and pamphlets. We have a great relationship with all other county departments and work collectively to ensure the citizens are fully informed."

In future years at the post, Romo hopes to make the court more efficient, but her own role, primarily meant to serve as a mediator during settlement negotiations for wills and trusts, will remain steady, she said.

"A probate judge should maintain neutrality and provide clear information," Romo said. "The relationship with citizens should be one where customers feel comfortable and fully informed."
