About Commissioner Katherine Bruch

After several visits to the Land of Enchantment via her husband’s family, Sandoval County Commissioner Katherine Bruch couldn’t wait to call New Mexico home.

Bruch said when her husband Frank Serrano began looking for a new job in 2011, New Mexico was high on his list of places to move to.

“We thought of this move as a preview to retirement and after deciding on the Placitas area and have loved living here ever since,” she said.

After making the move to Placitas, Bruch quickly began volunteering in the community, which helped her build relationships with the people that would soon become some of her constituents.

“I was part of the Placitas Community Library and a social organization that does community service like collecting food for the poor and organizing blood drives,” she said.

After Katherine Bruch began volunteering across our community in several capacities, she saw first-hand the gaps in District 1 and started strategizing how to make a real difference to Sandoval Countians.

“I knew that with my experience as a small business owner, working in the larger business community, and as a volunteer, I could combine my skills to deliver for the people of District 1,” Bruch asserted.

Bruch said she finds working on the Sandoval County Commission exhilarating and challenging.

“I know we don’t always have the answers but working on reaching those goals is part of the experience and is everything I expect it to be for the people of District 1 and our beloved Sandoval County,” she said.

Bruch said her goal is to be able go out and find solutions that will work for her constituents in the long run. Bruch currently serves on the statewide Counties Association and is part of the Placitas Community Library and social organizations active in community service, including delivering food to those most in need and organizing blood drives.
