Rebecca Still Has State Job

Betty Sparrow Doris might be leaving the Workforce Solutions Department, but not Rebecca Vigil-Giron.

Here's the official statement from the department:

The New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions was troubled to learn about the recent criminal indictment filed against one of our employees, Rebecca Vigil-Giron.

Deputy Secretary Ken Ortiz noted that while “The allegations contained in the indictments are serious, they concern actions that are unrelated to her work with the Department.” Ms. Vigil-Giron currently is employed by the Department as a constituent liaison for the Labor and Industrial Division.

As with other internal personnel matters, the Department will make no additional statements until it has had an opportunity to review the matter. Until that time, Ms. Vigil-Giron is expected to continue to fulfill her work duties.

The Department requests that any questions regarding the substance or nature of the indictment be addressed to Ms. Vigil-Giron outside of her normal work hours or be addressed to her attorney.
