ALAMOSA — After being appointed to the position by Governor Jared Polis in September, Tamara M. Sullivan was sworn into office on Thursday to serve as the county judge for Costilla County in the 12th Judicial District. The vacancy on the bench was created by the retirement of the Honorable Kimberly Wood.

Sullivan brings 10 years of regional legal experience to the bench. Since 2013, Sullivan has served as the Managing Attorney for the Alamosa County Legal Services Office where her practice consisted of domestic relations, housing and protection matters.

Sullivan was awarded her undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree from Regis University in Denver in 2006. She then earned her J.D. from the University of Denver Sturm College in 2012.
