Rep. Andrea Romero (D-Dist. 46)
AG continues review of RCLC, Romero criminal probe

After one year, New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas is still reviewing whether he will pursue a criminal complaint against the Regional Coalition of LANL Communities and its former Executive Director Andrea  Romero, now a state representative.

Northern New Mexico Protects, the organization that called for a criminal investigation into the financial activities of the regional coalition and Romero, is still looking for answers.

The group filed the complaint in February 2018.

David Neal, the current president of Northern New Mexico Protects, is still waiting to hear from Balderas as to whether a criminal investigation into how the non-profit organization handled its finances will move forward.

“We can confirm the Office of the Attorney General has received a public referral and this matter is under review. All complaints received by the Office of the Attorney General are fully reviewed and appropriate actionis taken, but we remain deeply concerned about any misuse of public funds by officials,” said David Carl, spokesman for the Attorney General’s Office, Tuesday.

Northern New Mexico Protects lodged a criminal complaint against the coalition, accusing Romero and others of misspending funds on travel, food and other expenses.
