Analee Maestas was the District 1 representative on the Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education in New Mexico. She resigned from the board on October 10, 2017. Maestas resigned after a recall effort was organized against her. In September 2017, the New Mexico State Auditor released a report claiming that nearly $700,000 had been embezzled from La Promesa Early Learning Center, a charter school Maestas founded in 2008 and where she served as executive director until 2016. Maestas denied any knowledge of financial mismanagement, and her lawyer said that the report did not show evidence that Maestas had participated in the alleged embezzlement.
