As a Councilor, Jamie Cassutt fights for our safety. Under her watch she made significant progress on public safety issues by increasing the compensation for Santa Fe Police Officers by 16 percent. The raises aided in recruiting and retaining the most qualified people to protect us. In addition she supported the down payment assistance and home purchase assistance program for New Mexico Heroes, including our police officers. These initiatives mean we now live in a city that has the lowest officer vacancy rate since 2018.
