Who Guards the Guardians? A Town Hall Forum


A town hall forum co-sponsored by KANW, the Albuquerque Journal and City of Albuquerque Dept. of Senior Affairs. The project emerged from an Albuquerque Journal series by reporter Diane Dimond on New Mexico’s court-monitored guardianship program for senior citizens. The resulting Town Hall Forum was held in the Journal auditorium and broadcast live. Issues included the lack of transparency in the legal system and insufficient process of managing the costs of court-appointed advisors.
