Former county administrator volunteers his time

By Carol A. Clark

Max Baker retired last December as Los Alamos County administrator, but his efforts in contributing to the community have continued.

Baker serves on the board of the Center for Public Safety Excellence (CPSE), an organization that works in support of first responder excellence. His wife, Kath Baker, has been involved with the CPSE through the board members’ wives group.

Kath explained that Baker began his career making sure each municipality he was involved in would find which actions were most valued by the supporting organization and practice those behaviors daily. This is an important element of the CPSE and typically detailed in an organization’s accreditation process requirements, Kath said, adding that her husband emphasized this aspect throughout his

entire career.

“In Los Alamos, Max did so many more things, progressing to this organization where he is now part of the board of directors. It is a time-consuming, volunteering effort, but one that values his opinions and acts on his suggestions, so it is rewarding,” she said. “Plus, what could give more satisfaction than helping all types of communities understand and lift their first responder practices to the level of accreditation? Their service is not something we wish to need, but are so grateful for, if we ever need it.”
