-A A +A

Prestige comes with the job title but esteem is earned and Los Alamos County Administrator Max Baker has earned the esteem of the Los Alamos County Council, Councilor Ken Milder said during Tuesday’s council meeting.

Milder, who served on county council in the 1980s, said he’s worked with a lot of county administrators over the years and ranks Baker amongst the best of them.

“What’s important is the level of confidence any county administrator can earn and Max has certainly earned our confidence,” he said.

Council Chair Jim Hall described the difference from when he worked for the county to how it operates now as the difference between night and day.

“One thing I know for sure is that Max Baker is absolutely committed to improving the lives of the people of Los Alamos County,” Hall said. “He has a demonstrated history of thoughtful judgment and consistent hard work...we are fortunate to have him and I want to say publicly, thank you Max.”

Councilor Jim West told Baker he has the highest regard and respect for him. “This county has no idea how blessed it is to have the highly dedicated and competent administrator and staff that it has,” said West, who has served on regional boards for years and has seen how other municipalities operate.
