Matthew D. Tso ran for judge on the San Juan County Magistrate Court, Division 2 in New Mexico in 2014. He also ran for election to the San Juan County Magistrate Court in 2010.[1]

In between judicial bids, Tso was a 2012 Democratic candidate for District 3 of the New Mexico State Senate.



In May 2012, Tso was placed on administrative leave for one week from his job as a legislative analyst for the Department of Dine Education. The action was related to Tso's participation in a hearing regarding school district boundaries. Earlier in 2012, Tso came under scrutiny for failing to produce a diploma from Dartmouth University. Tso says that he graduated and his diploma was withheld at first over a monetary issue. A university spokesman told The Daily Times that Tso attended the university and never graduated.[2]
