The members of the coalition who traveled to D.C. for meetings include: former Santa Fe Mayor David Coss, Los Alamos County Commissioner Steve Girrens, Rio Arriba Deputy County Manager David Trujillo, coalition executive director Darien Cabral, and Jennifer Padilla of the coalition’s executive director team.
The coalition members met with the following:
• Senator Martin Heinrich
• Senator Tom Udall
• Representative Ben Ray Lujan
• Bruce Held, the Acting Administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration
• Plus other Department of Energy and Nuclear Security Administration staff and key members of pertinent Congressional Committees
