Ms. Winter has represented local public bodies for over 25 years and served 12 years as a full-time in-house Deputy and Assistant City Attorney for the City of Albuquerque from 1991-2003 focusing primarily on utility, right-of-way, and procurement issues. Ms. Winter reported to no less than three mayors during that time. Ms. Winter was one of a handful of New Mexico “Board of Legal Specialization” Specialists in Local Government Law from 2005-2015. In July 2012, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez appointed Ms. Winter Chair of the New Mexico Finance Authority immediately after that agency disclosed the posting of a fraudulent audit. In March 2013, Moody’s reinstated the Authority’s high bond rating, citing strong governance and “positive organizational changes.”
