County attorney bids farewell

McInerny retires after several years of service

By Carol A. Clark

Tuesday evening marks the final Los Alamos County Council meeting for longtime community leader Mary McInerny.

“This council meeting will be the culmination of a long and distinguished career of public service to our county,” County Council Chair Michael Wismer said.

“Mary has done an outstanding job serving as both county attorney and as county administrator,” he added. “She enters retirement after leaving her footprints all over Los Alamos in the form of wise legal counsel, intricate negotiated agreements and settlements favoring the county and solid ordinances and resolutions that posture the county for the future.”

McInerny served as county attorney from 1995 to 2001 and again from 2008 to present.

“This second time around the volume of work and the complexity is greater than in my earlier term as attorney in the 1990s,” McInerny said.

She served as county administrator from 2001 to 2003, spent several months at Los Alamos National Bank and a summer working as director of a Girl Scout camp in Angel Fire. She then went to work on the Enterprise Project at Los Alamos National Laboratory. She obtained her project management certification and transferred to the Prime Contract Office under the deputy director.
