Joseph Patrick Gutierrez, was, as he says, “almost born here all my life.” His father was stationed in Shreveport, Louisiana, where Joseph was born. At the age of two, his parents returned to Santa Fe, where he grew up and graduated from the College of Santa Fe with a degree in accounting.

In 1983, he moved his new bride to Eldorado and together they raised two daughters. He retired from the Economic Development Department of the State of New Mexico, where he was the department’s deputy secretary, and then went to work with Santa Fe County in Finance and Public Works.

Joseph hopes to continue the strong financial practices that have been established within the management of the ECIA. In his spare time, he enjoys mountain biking in the area, motorcycling, and building and racing remote control cars.
